It s one of the most celebrated horror films in the history of cinema. Now, Elite Entertainment has added even more bonus materials and special features to the classic title Night of the Living Dead. Marking the initial release in Elite s Millennium EditionTM DVD series, Night of the Living Dead has been restored with a newly approved THX Transfer, and includes a wide array of never-before-seen DVD features. Considered one of the true, classic horror films of all time, Night of the Living Dead tells the story of a group of strangers taking shelter in a farmhouse while the rest of the world is doing battle against an army of hungry un-dead. Special Features Include:
Newly Approved THX Transfer Trailers/TV Spots Dual Commentary Tracks featuring George A. Romero and the Entire Cast Film Parody "Night of the Living Bread" Original Mono Soundtrack Dolby Digital 5.1 Remix Still Photo Gallery Featuring RARE COLOR Photos The History of Romero's Company, The Latent Image Scenes from the "Lost" Romero Film, "There's Always Vanilla" Liner notes by George A. Romero and Stephen King AND MORE!
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
