Product Description

Amazon.ca

We can hardly imagine how shocking this film was when it first broke into the film scene in 1968. There's never been anything quite like it again, though there have been numerous pale imitations. Part of the terror lies in the fact that it is shot in such a raw and unadorned fashion that it feels like a home movie, and is all the more authentic because of that. It draws us into its world gradually, content to establish a merely spooky atmosphere before leading us through a horrifically logical progression that we hardly could have anticipated. The story is simple: Radiation from a fallen satellite has caused the dead to walk, and hunger for human flesh. Once bitten, you become one of them. And the only way to kill one is by a shot or blow to the head. We follow a group holed up in a small farmhouse who are trying to fend off the inevitable onslaught of the dead. The tension between the members of this unstable, makeshift community drives the film. Night of the Living Dead establishes savagery as a necessary condition of life. Marked by fatality and a grim humor, the film gnaws through to the bone, then proceeds on to the marrow. Unfortunately, this version is somewhat marred by a poor transfer. If you're on a budget, this is adequate. Otherwise, you'll probably be happier with the collector's edition with THX sound, put out by Elite: Night of the Living Dead. It is complete with two commentaries, one by the filmmakers and the other by the "zombies" themselves. It's also packaged as a Fright Night Horror Classic along with Francis Ford Coppola's Dementia 13 and Revolt of the Zombies. --Jim Gay

Special Features

After years of murky tapes and fuzzy prints, Elite Entertainment showed the world what it was missing with the definitive presentation of the film on home video, mastered to THX specifications from the best materials in George Romero's possession. Elite has made the best even better with this new remaster for the Millennium Edition, and the DVD is filled with even more supplements. Romero and screenwriter John Russo discuss the challenges of the production with coproducers/costars Karl Hardman and Marilyn Eastman on one commentary track, while a cast party gathers for a raucous reunion on a second track. Other highlights include a gallery of Romero's TV commercials (check out the clever low-budget parody of Fantastic Voyage for Calgon), an articulate and thoughtful 16-minute audio-only interview with star Duane Jones (the last before his death), and heretofore unseen clips from Romero's "lost" film There's Always Vanilla. An essential disc for any horror enthusiast and still the definitive presentation. --Sean Axmaker

1.0 out of 5 stars This is the re-edited version! Jan. 19 2004
Format:DVD
The MOVIE is 5 stars.
This DVD is 1 star.
This is the re-edited version of the original classic. If you want the original classic them go elsewhere. If you want to see a new "version" - not a remastered version! - but a new "version" with new soundtrack, editing and scenes then this may be for you. If you want the original classic then go elsewhere to look for it!
You have be warned.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic That Worms Its Way Into Your Dreams July 12 2004
Format:DVD
"Night of the Living Dead" is a classic that worms its way into your dreams. Truly amazing stuff. Back when Romero and Russo wrote and films this, they did not yet realize they were created a whole new subgenre of horror. Much as I like the remake, the undead are creepiest in the shadows of black and white film.
I'm writing to respond to one reviewer's nitpick and another reviewer's well-intentioned mistake. Complaining that most of it is in mono is like complaining that it's in black and white. That's how the original was made, plain and simple. Another reviewer complained about how horrible the version with added footage is. That individual is right about that version, but that's the 30th Anniversary Edition and NOT the Millenium Edition. The 30th Anniversary Edition with added scenes and weird, distracting music is too horrible for words, and not even in a "Plan 9 From Outer Space" so-bad-it's-funny way. The Millenium Edition is simply an official DVD made from a cleaned up print, with extras like the interviews. If you want to see the real "Night of the Living Dead" and get some cool extras for your money, this is the way to go.

4.0 out of 5 stars DEFINITELY WORTH OWNING ! July 6 2006
By The Critic TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
As a long time George A. Romero fan I didn't know what to expect when I purchased this DVD. A newly colorized version of "Night of the Living Dead" with 5.1 surround sound and a completely restored black & white version of this 1968 cult classic for one low price. I have never been in favor of colorizing black & white films but after seeing the colorized version I have a new appreciation for this film. If you're a George A. Romero fan what more could you possibly want two incredible versions on one disc at an affordable price. If you don't feel like spending the big bucks for the millennium edition, then this DVD edition is the way to go. The remastered picture and sound are excellent, better than any of the inferior copies out there and definitely better than anything I've ever seen. It's a great effort put out by 20th Century Fox Studio and Legend Films and I'm happy to finally own it.

DVD Features Include:
*All-new color version and restored black-and-white version
*Audio commentary by Mike Nelson of TV's Mystery Science Theater 3000
"Separated at Death" celebrity zombie game
*Vintage horror trailers

5.0 out of 5 stars Get it this B & W version Oct. 28 2004
By -|-
Format:DVD
My favorite horror film of all time is NOTLD and when I heard of the new colorized version I was naturally curious. The colorized film looks ok, but not all together too natural looking. I found that the colors worked best on inanimate objects such as trees etc, and in outdoor settings. The flesh tones are acceptable but none the less a good effort. Bottom line is that you can almost pass this off in some places as a color film but only for seconds at a time as frequently something will catch your eye that will shatter the illusion. A bright red shirt for example or an off grouping of strange, clashing colors almost make this too surreal in parts. The fire however colored really nice. I think that it would have benefited also if the contrast was toned down slightly as I think the film looks too colorful at times. Instead of blending, the colors clash too strongly sometimes. The colorized version was taken from a restored version of the film thus the quality and sharpness looks quite good and there are 5.1 and DTS audio tracks available. The special features include a restored black and white version of the movie, not as good as the Millennium Edition DVD transfer which is THX approved but this is very good and the next best edition available at the moment for such a cheap price. The B&W edition only offers the original mono track though but no chapter stops. Also included is a game where you have to guess what celebrity looks like one of the zombies from the film. A pretty useless extra that you will only ever look at once. The commentary track by Mike Nelson is pretty useless too in my opinion. It offers very little info besides the names of the actors, all the while Nelson throws out little comments that are an attempt at humor, mostly putting down the film. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Way To End Up Dead May 30 2004
Format:DVD
George A Romero's zombie horror classic, Night Of The Living Dead, is a watershed film for the genre. It has spawned a few sequels, a remake, countless imitations, parodies, and influenced generations of filmmakers. Of the countless DVD versions of the film that are out there, the Millennium Edition seemed to me, the best best.
Shot in black and white, on a shoestring budget, during the post Kennedy era of the late 60's, the film that had trouble finding a distributor tells a simple story, that still holds up. Seven people secluded in a Pennsylvania farmhouse, face continous attacks from "living dead" corpses, seeking to eat their flesh. The group, which includes a married couple and their daughter, a pair of young lovers, and an African-American man, try to keep their sanity as the zombies try endlessly to enter the house. Soon, it is determined that, the only way to stop the them, is to burn them or issue a severe blow to their heads. News reports on the radio tell of the ever increasing hordes, taking over the eastern United States, while the small band of survivors rapidly loses ground in the battle to both keep peace with one another and somehow stay alive.
Sure, the film has plenty of cliches and over the top dialogue, still, those are part of the reasons the film works. All one has to do is consider the time period the film was made. In my opinion, the film represents the first time truly "shocking" horror was ever attemted. Up to that time the best one could hope for was science gone awry or things like The Blob. The country itself was in the midst of a turbulent period. Anarchy was almost everywhere. Like the times, Romero's zombies were up front, shocking, in your face, and their numbers were growing.
