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
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.

This is Night of the Living Dead restored and the way it was ment to be!!!
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 this even better 2008 restored & remastered version supervised by George Romero, distributed by dimension home entertainment & the Weinstein Company. This one also has the special features included on the millennium edition, plus an all new original 90 minute documentary tiled "One for the fire"
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.
