Product Description

Product Description

A true cult classic - and one of the scariest movies of all time. The dead are walking, and hunger for human flesh. A group of panicked survivors are barricaded in a deserted farmhouse while the army of flesh-eating zombies hovers outside their door.

Now experience the bone-chilling terror in color for the first time on DVD. With a 5.1 surround sound remix, and a hilarious commentary track by Mike Nelson, this is the most fun you'll ever have with the living dead.

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

"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.

One of the greatest horror films ever made. Roger Ebert, said that audiences didn't know what they were in for when this film was released to the unsuspecting movie goers back in 1968. He wrote that the film went from pleasantly scary to absolutely terrifying. He noted some in attendance were so scared they were crying. What do you expect no one had ever seen a movie like this up until then. It was an original, the original. Now there a whole very successful zombie genre that has grown from the very strong roots planted by this powerful film back in 68. A classic. Success's like the walking dead owes everything to this film.
If you are looking to buy. Then the best versions are the millennium version released on lazer disc in the mid 90s & then on DVD around 2000 it's loaded with special features & then there's the even better 2008 remastered version supervised by George Romero distributed by dimension home entertainment. This one also with comes special features including a 90 minute documentary tiled "One for the fire"

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Feb. 22 2007
Format: DVD
As with any other horror genre, the groundbreaking zombie movie is the best. "Night of the Living Dead" is a cult gem that has inspired every zombie movie after it, with its low-budget look and cast of excellent, unknown actors. And, of course, the flesh-eating undead who are rising to kill the living.

A crashed satellite starts emitting radiation, which somehow causes the dead to rise out of their graves to devour the living. Don't ask how, because it doesn't matter. Barbara (Judith O'Dea) is visiting a grave with her brother -- when suddenly a shambling, dead-faced man murders him, and chases her down the road to a farmhouse, where she manages to hide.

But she's not alone -- a kindly man named Ben (Duane Jones), a young couple, and a family are also hiding there. And without weapons or protection, they have very little chance of survival. The refugees barricade themselves for protection -- but now there are hundreds of zombies closing in. They must fight with fire and their wits... but it may not be enough to save them all.

"Night of the Living Dead" is one of those horror movies that chills viewers right down to the marrow. Romero creates a nightmarish, claustrophobic atmosphere in his movie, where no matter where you go, you're trapped -- and the humans might kill you if the zombies don't. The finale is a tragic, but very realistic twist.

Originally filmed in murky black-and-white, Romero manages to make this film feel creepy even when the zombies aren't there. And while they're hiding in the farmhoruse, he takes the time to make it realistic -- the refugees grate on each other in a believable way ("I ought to drag you out there and FEED you to those things!").

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
