Bit-O-Sexy: Judith O’Dea

Welcome to Bit-O-Sexy, a column designed to turn you on to horror by featuring images, trailers, products, and whatever else I deem worthy of being called sexy. Now, in the case of this column, anything deemed sexy is not always going to be sexy in the traditional sense, but will always focus on cool horror related people, pictures, trailers, and things.

Remember a little movie called Night of the Living Dead? Of course you do. It is the granddaddy of the modern zombie. Virtually all zombie movies made since then can trace some manner of inspiration back to thie George Romero classic. For better or worse, this is where it all started. One of the great things about it is that it still holds up today. It is frightening, atmospheric, disturbing, and ha one of the greatest endings of a movie ever.

Night of the Living Dead also introduced me to Judith O’Dea. You remember her, right? How about this:

Yes, she was Barbra! The woman who goes into near catatonic shock as the outbreak of living dead begins to take hold. Judith O’Dea was kinda cute, don’t you think? No, she was not overtly sexy, but the role didn’t call for that, but I do think she was adorable, even as she screamed her head off. What do you think?
