Barbra (Judith O'Dea), is a fictional character from the first of George A. Romero's living dead films, Night of the Living Dead. She is Johnny's sister and is rather dependent.

While Barbra and her brother Johnny (Russell Streiner) drive to a Pennsylvania cemetery to place a wreath on their father's grave, Johnny teases her because she is afraid of cemeteries, taunting, "They're coming to get you, Barbra!" As Johnny jeers at Barbra, a pale-faced man lumbers toward the pair. The man suddenly grabs Barbra and Johnny rushes to save her. While fighting with the man, Johnny falls and smashes his head on a gravestone. Barbra flees in Johnny's car, driving it into a tree. She abandons the car and runs into a nearby farmhouse to hide. She soon discovers that others like the man are outside.

Barbra is joined by Ben (Duane Jones), who arrives in a pickup truck. Ben boards up the doors and windows from the inside with dismantled furniture and scraps of wood as Barbra becomes hysterical. Ben finds a rifle and a radio as Barbra lies incapacitated on a couch in the living room. The two are unaware that Harry and Helen Cooper, their daughter Karen, and teenage couple Tom and Judy have been hiding in the cellar. Harry wants the group to barricade themselves in the cellar, but Ben argues that they would, effectively, be trapping themselves down there.

Later, when the undead are breaking into the house, Barbra rouses to assist Ben in trying to keep them out. She sees her brother Johnny among them. She hesitates and Johnny pulls her out of the house and into the zombie horde.

  • In the 1990 remake of Night of the Living Dead, Barbra's (renamed Barbara) fate is altered, as well as her demeanor; depicted as more independent in the remake, Barbara survives the events of the film.

Her boyfriend, Stephen, plans to sneak out and steal the studio's traffic helicopter to escape the zombie threat. Francine and Stephen sneak out and meet two other survivors, Peter and Roger. The four escape in a helicopter, fleeing the city with the intention of reaching the safety of the Canadian wilderness.

Following close calls while stopping for fuel, the group comes across a shopping mall which becomes their own private sanctuary. The four hide from the zombies in an apartment in the upstairs of the mall. While Peter, Roger and Stephen are getting food from the shops, one zombie, a Hare Krisha, found the staircase to the room where they were hiding.

After clearing the mall of its zombie inhabitants, the four settle in, each indulging their every material desire. Eventually dying from his wounds, Roger is shot by Peter as he begins to reanimate.

Months pass and Francine is learning how to fly a helicopter and is also roughly four months pregnant with Stephen's baby. However one night, a gang of bikers breaks into the mall and in the process, let in hundreds of the zombies.

In the end, the victors in the chaos that ensues are the ravenous zombies, who feast upon many of the bikers, while Stephen dies from wounds inflicted by the them. When the bikers retreat from the mall as the zombies become too numerous, Stephen reanimates as a zombie. Upon Stephen's reanimation, he leads a large group of the creatures to Francine and Peter, who await Stephen's return.

He is verbally abusive and shows signs of being on the verge of a complete breakdown.

After the commanding officer is killed, Captain Rhodes becomes commanding officer. One of the chief scientists, Dr. Logan, has been conducting experiments on the undead collected from the corral. He has been working with a zombie he has named “Bub” to see how much of his human mind he may have retained. Amazingly, Bub seems to respond to common objects, and even reveals a docile nature instead of simply viewing Logan as "food".

Rhodes, who refers to Logan as "Dr. Frankenstein", is not impressed by his progress, and after he discovers that the doctor has been using his own deceased troops as food for the zombies, he shoots the doctor. Rhodes orders the pilot, John to prepare the helicopter for evacuation, telling him that only the army personnel will be evacuated, and the scientists will be left in the silo to die. John refuses and Rhodes responds by immediately murdering another doctor, by shooting him in the head. John realizes he must obey Rhodes. Two other people are taken to the holding corral and are forced inside with the undead.

Meanwhile, the compound’s main elevator to the surface, deliberately opens by Miguel Salazar and leading the zombies into the complex. The undead easily infiltrate the complex in overwhelming numbers and devour the remaining soldiers. Steel, Rhodes second in command, flees in the bunker along with Rhodes, and kills several zombies, but ends up being bitten, and kills himself. Meanwhile, Rhodes seeks refuge in another room, unaware that Bub has gotten free, and acquired an M1911 pistol. Rhodes flees from Bub, but is shot twice. Rhodes tries to escape via a door, but is ambushed by a group of zombies. Bub shoots Rhodes in the liver. Bub lumbers away, while Rhodes is torn in two at the waist.

After Dr. Logan is shot dead, William and Sarah are held hostage by Rhodes and his men. When John refuses to fly the soldiers away, Rhodes has Sarah and William locked into the corral where many zombies lurk.

The Living Dead Edit

Bub Edit

Bub (played by Sherman Howard) is a zombie who is from George A. Romero's "Day of the Dead." He demonstrated the most advanced abilities of any zombie from the Romero series of zombie films. Dr. Logan gave him the name 'Bub' after his father's country club nickname. Bub became Dr. Logan's guinea pig and demonstrated several behaviors that other zombie test subjects did not.

He was capable of several emotions, including fear, friendliness, sadness, even empathy and vengeance. When Capt. Rhodes first entered Bub's cell, Bub recognized his army uniform and saluted him. When given an unloaded pistol, he demonstrated from memory that he could operate the slide and then pull the trigger. When prompted, he was able to make an extremely labored attempt at speech. He believed Dr. Logan to be his friend and was quite distraught upon finding his murdered corpse. He was responsible for the death of Capt. Rhodes.

It was proven that Bub was capable of seeing humans as more than just food. Dr. Logan presented Bub with ample opportunities to eat or attack him. Bub once even grabbed Dr. Logan's arm, but decided against biting him and released his hold. Even after shooting Capt. Rhodes he saluted him and walked away with out bothering to join in with the rest of the zombies who began feasting on the remains.

His current status is unknown.

Riley Denbo (Simon Baker) is a fictional character from George A. Romero’s “Land of the Dead”. Denbo is a quiet man, seemingly exhausted by the work he has to do which is scavenging for supplies. Not much is known of his life before the outbreak. He has revealed that his brother was bitten and that he had to shoot him when he revived. He has no known relatives or spouse and has only 1 trusted friend, Charlie.

Denbo works for Kaufman, the wealthy business man who through power and fear, runs “Fiddler’s Green” and the surrounding city in Pittsburgh. Denbo designed, built and was in charge of “Dead Reckoning” – a massive vehicle as long as two city buses that is heavily armed and protected by armour plating that ventures into the now wastelands of Pittsburgh to retrieve essential supplies. Denbo retired from work and was meant to collect a car that would enable him to realise his dream of escaping to Canada and a hopefully zombie free zone. However, Denbo is ripped off and after rescuing “Slack” from a certain death, is imprisoned. However, Denbo’s reckless side-kick Cholo Demora, disgruntled that Kaufman refused to let him live in the exclusive apartment building, steals “Dead Reckoning” and threatens to turn the guns onto the city. Kaufman has Denbo and his friend Charlie and the newly met Slack released so they can try to intercept and re-acquire the Dead Reckoning.

Denbo succeeds in retrieving the vehicle but not before a massive horde of zombies have infiltrated the city. In a desperate race against time, Denbo tries to rescue the wealthy who have poured onto the streets. But he is too late. The people have succumbed. He orders missiles to be fired to destroy the flesh eating zombies and to stop any infected people rising from the dead. However, the poor people of the area have survived. An uprising of the poor has now occurred. Denbo consults renegade leader Mulligan, who gives Denbo the impression that nothing much has really changed. Denbo reboards the Dead Reckoning and heads for Canada. He decides not to destroy any remaining zombies who are now retreating as they are “Looking for a place to go. Like us”. He and his friends fire the last of their “sky flowers” and heads to an uncertain future.

Cholo DemoraEdit

Cholo Demora is a fellow survivor and crew captain in Fiddler's Green. Like Riley, Cholo serves Kaufman and helps bring supplies into Fiddler's Green from nearby towns and cities. However, Cholo has shown himself to be self-centered and somewhat of a mercenary for hire. He serves Kauffman out of the false hope that he will pay him extra for performing certain tasks issued by Kauffman (i.e. killing and dumping the bodies of those Kauffman viewed as unfit to live in the Green) and allow him to live in one of the luxurious Fiddler's Green apartments. However, when Kauffman denies these privelages, Cholo becomes enraged. With the help of his crew, steals Dead Reckoning, an armored truck used in the protection of the troops and vows to use the trucks missiles to, "blow Kauffman out of his fuckin' castle!" if he does not pay Cholo's demands.

Kauffman dispatches Riley to do whatever is necessary to ensure the safety of the Green. After finding Cholo, Riley tries to negotiate Cholo's surrender, Cholo refuses. Cholo is then injured by a stray bullet fired by one of Riley's crew. He agrees to surrender Dead Reckoning to Riley but decides not to return to the Green. Instead he and a friend take Riley's car and begin to leave but as they do, Cholo is surprised by a zombie who bites him on the hand, infecting him. After this Cholo returns to the Green to confront Kauffman before he turns into a zombie. After his transformation is complete, the now zombified Cholo finds Kauffman attempting to leave Fiddler's Green in a Limosine. He repeatedly tries to bite Kauffman but Kaufman barely manages to hold Cholo at arms length.

Big DaddyEdit

Big Daddy was the "leader" of the zombie horde that attacked Fiddler's Green. He is a black man wearing coveralls, and appears to have died of natural causes, as there is no visible sign of injury. He is also rather intelligent, and views his fellow zombies with empathy, even going so far as to push them down out of the line of fire, and on separate occasions "killing" zombies who have been decapitated or set aflame, out of mercy. He carries an assault rifle he grabs off of a passing motorist during the raid at the beginning of the movie, which he gradually learns to use; he even teaches another zombie to use it as well. His actions over the course of the film show that the intelligence exhibited by Bub in Day of The Dead has begun to affect other zombies as well, from minor details such as more and more zombies carrying weapons, to Big Daddy's leading and directing the zombie horde to attack Fiddler's Green. Unlike other zombies, Big Daddy apparently has no desire to feed on flesh, probably having suppressed this impulse with his developing intelligence. During the climax of the film, he locates Kauffman attempting to escape via limo, and begins pouring gasoline into the smashed windshield of the limo. As Kauffman is attacked by a zombified Cholo, he rolls a flaming canister down towards the limo, killing Kauffman. During the final scenes of the film, Big Daddy is shown one final time, still leading his "family" of zombies to wherever they may wander.
