Celebrate 50 years of Living Dead by seeing the completely restored and remastered version of Night of the Living Dead in cinemas. The iconic film that started the zombie genre and shaped modern horror movies as we know and love them today.
Directed by horror legend, George A. Romero, the film is a great story of independent cinema: a midnight hit turned box-office smash that became one of the most influential films of all time.
For this special 50th anniversary event, audiences can see the stunning restoration of Night of the Living Dead, a product of the original filmmakers’ collaborating with the Museum of Modern Art and the George Lucas Family Foundation to restore the film from the original camera negative. The remastered version is more visually striking and terrifying than ever. If you haven’t seen this film in cinemas, you haven’t truly seen Night of the Living Dead as it was intended: in a dark cinema, on the big screen.
Night Of The Living Dead will premiere in cinemas on 24 October. Get all the latest horror news with every issue of SciFiNow.
