Product Description

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

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 --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"

i finally had a chance to see this is hailed by many as a
classic.while i can kind of see how that might be the case,i feel a bit
letdown.when this movie came out,it was brutally shocking and
innovative,but not so much isn't a poorly made fact
it is quite well made.the fact that it was filmed in black and white
did add to the dark atmosphere and creepiness.the music worked well
with the film,for the most.however at times it seemed to over power the
film.the acting is pretty good.Duane Jones plays the character of
Ben,the no nonsense,take charge character in the film.his portrayal is
very effective and authentic.the movie also had a documentary fell to
it,which elevated it.there are some weak points in the is that
the "Zombies" move so slow,and by slow i mean molasses uphill in
January "slow".the other is the apparent cause of the
just seemed too far-fetched.despite all this,the film does move well
and is worth watching,which is more than i can say for the horrible
1990 version.i'd have to say a strong 3/5 for this one

By EA 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!").
