George A. Romero’s terrifying classic, the movie that invented the zombie genre, in a
stunning new 4K restoration.

Shot outside Pittsburgh on a shoestring budget by a band of filmmakers determined to
make their mark, Night of the Living Dead, directed by horror master GEORGE A. ROMERO,
is one of the great stories of independent cinema: a midnight hit turned box‐office smash
that became one of the most influential films of all time. A deceptively simple tale of a
group of strangers trapped in a farmhouse who find themselves fending off a horde of
recently dead, flesh‐eating ghouls, Romero’s claustrophobic vision of a late‐1960s America
literally tearing itself apart rewrote the rules of the horror genre, combined gruesome gore
with acute social commentary, and quietly broke ground by casting a black actor (DUANE
JONES) in its lead role. Stark, haunting, and more relevant than ever, Night of the Living
Dead is back, in a new 4K restoration.
