From Patrick McCabe:
Night of the Living Dead is the zombie movie that started it all! I fondly remember renting it for the first time as a teenager from a local Mom & Pop video store in Burnsville, MN on a chilly autumn eve. I was immediately fascinated by the stark black and white cinematography, the fine performances from the cast, the unsettling gore (for it’s time), and the sheer terror that George A. Romero had created on such a low budget. It’s since become a staple in my seasonal queue during the Halloween season along with its fantastic original sequels: Dawn of the Dead & Day of the Dead. The original 1968 film has become iconic in the Horror genre and completely redefined the way we understand “zombies” in the traditional sense; this was the first time zombies by name had been featured as the undead, flesh-eating, slow-moving ghouls we have come to know in countless films and television shows since. Night of the Living Dead was subsequently selected for preservation by the library of congress for being culturally and historically significant.
If you buy the Blu-Ray edition on October 3rd, the included digital copy code will unlock access to my audio commentary where I pay tribute to the late, great, George A. Romero, discuss the origins of the film, and share some behind the scenes stories from the making of this spooky classic! This will be released in stores just in time for Halloween 2017. It was an honor to be a part of the process and I want to thank Mill Creek Entertainment for their collaboration on this fun release!
