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.

Synopsis:
Judith O’Dea and Russell Streiner star in this classic horror by George A. Romero. When brother and sister Johnny and Barbra (Streiner and O’Dea) go to visit their father’s grave, Barbra is terrified for her life when Johnny is killed by a flesh-eating zombie. As she escapes to a nearby farmhouse Barbra discovers other desperate individuals who are preparing to do battle with the undead.
