Night of the Living Dead

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, Barbara finds a corpse at the top of the farmhouse stairs with its face partially eaten away. Later, when Ben drags the corpse into another room we get a fleeting glimpse of its face and it shows no sign of decay of any sort.

Continuity mistake: A scene is shown where the zombies smash the headlights of the truck that Ben arrived in. Later in the movie, when they attempt to refuel the truck, both headlights are fully intact and lit.

Factual error: In the 30th Anniversary version with new footage it is revealed that the first zombie we see (the one that kills Johnny) died in the electric chair. If that's the case, he should be bald with a large burn on his scalp, but he has a full head of hair.

Trivia: The scene where Barbara crashes the car into the tree wasn't scripted originally; an accident that put a large dent in the car before the scene was shot prompted George Romero to re-write the scene in such a way that the dent is justified.

New this month Question: Is it true that missing footage from the movie has been found?

New this month Chosen answer: Yes, director George Romero announced in 2015 that he had rediscovered some 16mm working footage that never made it into the movie, including a full 9-minute sequence (a jump-cut of the basement scene) featuring the largest zombie attack in the film. Although Romero died earlier this year, film legend Martin Scorsese was said to be overseeing the film's restoration including the found footage.
