Editorial Reviews

Product Description

"The granddaddy of modern flesh-eating zombies" (Marjorie Baumgarten, The Austin Chronicle), George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead still sets the standard for all indie fright flicks. This 40th Anniversary Edition, authorized by the director himself, reanimates the landmark tale of five strangers who struggle desperately against hordes of the walking undead. Remastered and loaded with all-new Special Features, Night of the Living Dead remains "a bona fide classic... still very scary after all these years" (Jason Jones, Classic-Horror.com)

Additional Features

The 40th anniversary edition of Night of the Living Dead comes equipped with some old special features and some new wrinkles. But first off, buyer beware: the endless copyright problems of NOTL are still with us, and a public-domain version of the movie, also billing itself as the 40th anniversary edition, is floating around out there (the one you want has George Romero's replica signature in silver at the bottom of the front cover). This new package contains some pre-existing features, including an intriguing audio interview with leading man Duane Jones, a somewhat tortured intellectual who sounds conflicted about his fame from the movie. Two commentary tracks allow Romero and other key collaborators to sound off about the film, and the original script is included as a DVD-ROM extra. A brief Q&A with Romero onstage at a festival is all right, but the real draw is a new feature-length documentary, One for the Fire, about the making of NOTL. It's got great anecdotes about the genesis of the project and the scrappy group of Pittsburghers who came together to make the world's greatest zombie movie. There's also info about the post-production goof that resulted in the film going out without a copyright attached--a detail that cost Romero and his backers millions. --Robert Horton

Customer Reviews

If I could have given it ZERO stars, I would have!
Michael K
The way it was shot makes the movie feel like a documentary at times, and I think this is an interesting touch.
Patrick Hall
Romero's low-budget gorefest is still one of the best horror films ever made.

The five star rating I gave Night of the Living Dead is, of course, for the original, uncut, unadulterated edition. The original is, quite simply, the most terrifying movie I've ever seen, even when compared to horror classics like Diabolique (the original French version), Psycho, Rosemary's Baby, Halloween and The Shining. I saw NOTLD when I was 9 years old on Creature Features at midnight after a funeral. I had nightmares for the next two nights. The film still gives me the chills whenever I see it (usually at Halloween).

When the 30th Anniversary Edition came out, I bought it on VHS as I was curious to see what they termed as "new footage." What I got was a horrible mess that butchered the original film, removed the original music for a terrible synthesizer score and added pointless footage that makes the viewer want to grind his teeth down to the gums. One of the additions is a new character: a fire and brimstone preacher. While the acting in the original is amateurish, at best, the "actor" who plays the preacher makes the original cast look like Oscar winners by comparison. He snarls, and howls and gnashes his teeth like he has rabies. Even more ridiculous is the extra footage of Bill Hinzman -- the "cemetary zombie" in the original. The extra footage shows Hinzman's character emerging from the grave, then cuts to the original 1968 opening footage with Judith O'Dea and Russell Streiner. It's absolutely ridiculous as Hinzman looks 30 years older in the new footage. In addition, there are more zombies and a new ending to the film that makes no sense whatsoever. This "new" version is a piece of trash that desecrates the most frightening film of all time. Avoid it like the plague!

This review pertains only to the Millennium Edition DVD of Night of the Living Dead.
Okay...as I'd feared, my negative review of the John Russo-massacred "30th Anniversary Edition" of Night of the Living Dead has been lumped unwittingly into this product's review, so I' m writing this one to clarify.
This DVD edition is the best edition I've seen of the film yet. Anchor Bay may have raised the ires of legions of Living Dead fans by releasing the sacrilegious 30th Anniversary Edition, but Elite Entertainment did right by this new edition.
George A. Romero's personal appreciation appears in the back of this DVD -- this immediately restores our faith. And the contents don't disappoint -- the picture and sound are good, and though this doesn't exactly contain the richest batch of bonus materials (sets like the excellent 3-disc edition of Dario Argento's Suspiria and the recent double-disc Re-Animator both feature loads of extras), it is a nice solid collection. You get a Duane Jones interview (sadly with only audio and no image, but still great); an on-camera chat between Judith Ridley (Judy) and Marilyn Eastman (Helen); the hilarious student-film spoof "Night of the Living Bread" by Kevin S. O'Brien (which also appeared in the double-cassette VHS edition); two commentary tracks with Romero, Russo, Russ Streiner, Eastman, Karl Hardman and others. One very illuminating portion of this DVD for non-film-scholars is visually boring but informative -- several histories outlining the beginning of Romero's Latent Image company, on Hardman and Eastman's company, and how the two were married to produce Night of the Living Dead.
THIS is the right edition of Night of the Living Dead, the one to get for both fans and non-fans alike.

When I first saw the packaging for this Special Edition of Night of the Living Dead it said there was 15 minutes of new footage and a new score. Well, GREAT I thought. 15 minutes of new footage that must've been cut out from the original release! New score, well, that could be a good thing too!
Until I opened the box to see the little booklet that revealed the ugly truth... There are new scenes alright. New scenes made by new people TWO YEARS AGO! The new scenes are badly acted, badly written, and badly edited. Scenes that subtract from the overall impact of the film and do nothing but taint a true horror classic. The new music is a cheesy synthesizer score that does nothing but irritate and distract throughout the film. (Cheesy synthesizer is good for other horror films, but it does NOT work well here.)
I originally bought this at a store, got it home and didn't even sit through the whole thing. I zipped through various chapters to see the HORRIBLE new additions in all their glory. The next day I took it back and told them it skipped because I was so determined to get rid of it.
STAY AWAY!

This review pertains only to the "30th Anniversary Edition".
I had been collecting George A. Romero's "Living Dead" trilogy on DVD and had purchased this without paying enough attention. Big mistake.
Night of the Living Dead has had some colossally confusing release patterns thanks to a copyright gaffe which had enabled every company under the sun to release the film and profit from it. But of the 'rogue editions' I've seen, nothing is worse than this one.
Notice the list of personnel involved in this project: John Russo, Russ Streiner, Bill Hinzman...anybody missing? That's right: George A. Romero himself. This "30th Anniversary" edition is a collaborated effort by Romero's former colleagues in the Night of the Living Dead crew to rip off Romero's work and make a profit from it.
The result is disastrous indeed. The new footage written and directed by John Russo serve to butcher the original film. Not only do the new scenes not contribute to the story, they look amateurish, mostly due to horrible writing. Russo had always wanted to claim more credit for the success of Night of the Living Dead than was due him; this attempt at appropriating credit for the original film only shows that Romero is the only one who understands the concept of the Living Dead films. Russo's heinous, childish writing and direction -- which are no better than that of the tongue-in-cheek soft-core videographers of, say, Seduction Cinema -- barely rise above the level of beginner film students. And his claim that the new footage matches the old is just ludicrous. Basically Streiner, Russo, Hinzman et al.

Millennium Edition is the best

How is this legal?
"Night of the Living Dead" is in the public domain due to intricacies of U.S. copyright law, therefore this is not a "bootleg" copy of anything.

40th Anniversary edition
I believe back then, movies were shot in full frame. Perhaps they made it widescreen by simply adding black bars at the top and bottom? They did the same thing with Toxic Avenger, and I think Jaws.

Can you name this old horror movie?
Isn't that Dr. X? It came out in the early '30s but was surprisingly shot in color. You can buy it on DVD in a set called "Legends Of Horror" for about 20 dollars.

Like it or hate it....It's STILL a collector's item!!!
Things grow in value because they were originally wanted at some point to where they are searched for decades later, being limited is just the added bonus.

Nobody wanted this 30th anniversary edition to begin with, and once the few who did get it saw it, they spread the word it was garbage.... Read More
