Near-Identical Scenes In "The Killer Shrews" (1959) and "Night of the Living Dead" (1968)(video)

"The Killer Shrews" (1959) has certain elements that showed up again later in "The Birds" (1963) and "Night of the Living Dead" (1968).

The latter film in particular features a scene that's almost a replay of one from "The Killer Shrews", right down to the music.

In "Night of the Living Dead", the scene ends with Ben (Duane Jones) saying: "I ought to drag you out there and feed you to those things!"

In "The Killer Shrews", Thorn (James Best) doesn't just say it--he almost does it!

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!
