It's hard to imagine how shocking this film was when it first broke on the film scene in 1968. There's never been anything quite like it, though it's inspired numerous pale imitations. Part of the terror lies in the fact that this one's shot in such a raw, unadorned fashion it feels like a home movie, and all the more authentic for that. Another is 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 could hardly 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 to fend off the inevitable onslaught of the dead. And it's the tensions between the members of this unstable, makeshift community that drive the film. Night of the Living Dead establishes its savagery as a necessary condition of life. Marked by fatality and a grim humor, it gnaws through to the bone, then proceeds on to the marrow. Anchor Bay's 30th Anniversary Edition presents this horror classic in a pristine, newly remastered print, rescored and reedited with over 15 minutes of new footage directed by the film's writer and co-editor John A. Russo. This is a controversial "modified" version of the original film, and should be considered separately from George Romero's definitive version, released on DVD by Elite Entertainment. --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"

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!").

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 ›
