|Night Of The Living Dead||—||—||—|
We can hardly imagine how shocking this film was when it first broke into the film scene in 1968. There's never been anything quite like it again, though there have been numerous pale imitations. Part of the terror lies in the fact that it is shot in such a raw and unadorned fashion that it feels like a home movie, and is all the more authentic because of 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 hardly could 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 who are trying to fend off the inevitable onslaught of the dead. The tension between the members of this unstable, makeshift community drives the film. "Night of the Living Dead" establishes savagery as a necessary condition of life. Marked by fatality and a grim humor, the film gnaws through to the bone, then proceeds on to the marrow. "--Jim Gay"
The Elite DVD was made as the definitive collector's edition of the film, boasting even THX sound. Included are two wonderful commentaries, one by the filmmakers and the other by the actors who played the zombies, a joyous trip down memory lane for them. There are TV ads, trailers, and a mostly boring, one-joke parody film, called Night of the Living Bread. The transfer is crystal clear, making this disc the only choice for true collectors. --Jim GaySee all Editorial Reviews
I honestly like this film! Yes the guy at the ending sucked, but the picture quality is really sharp and I liked the new score. The new scenes were ok.Published 25 days ago by Amazon Customer
Some scenes were extremely dark. I don't remember the original being so dark, although I could be wrong. The movie just appeared to lose some detail from the digital re-master.Published 26 days ago by Steve M.
Waisted my money on this version. The added scenes they filmed in 1998. I thought they would be like a director's cut, from the original 1968 movie. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Cynthia Williams

|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
