New Digital 4K Restoration!
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is a 1968 American independent horror film directed by George A. Romero. The story follows a group of seven people trapped in a rural farmhouse in Western Pennsylvania who are attacked by a large and growing group of bloodthirsty zombies. At the time of its release it was heavily criticized for its explicit gore. Subsequently recognized as a culturally significant film, it was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry. Director George Romero, now considered the father of the modern zombie, went on to make several sequels. An icon of the horror film world, he passed away at the age of 77 in July 2017. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD was restored by The Museum of Modern Art and The Film Foundation last year from the film’s original negatives. Romero called this new 4K restoration “closer than anything we’ve seen to the definitive version of the film.”
