'The Amusement Park': George A. Romero's Long Lost Horror Film to Debut on Shudder This June!

The Amusement Park, directed by the late George A. Romero back in 1973, will finally be available to watch on the Shudder streaming platform in North America, the UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. The Amusement Park will make its official debut on June 8th! Along with today’s release announcement, we have an exclusive first look trailer for you below.

The film follows and stars:

Lincoln Maazel, an elderly man who finds himself disoriented and increasingly isolated as the pains, tragedies and humiliations of aging in America are manifested through roller coasters and chaotic crowds.

Shudder notes: Romero’s wildest and most imaginative movie, an allegory about the nightmarish realities of growing older, and is an alluring snapshot of the filmmaker’s early artistic capacity and style and would go on to inform his ensuing filmography.

Shot by George A. Romero between Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead, The Amusement Park is a bleak, haunting allegory where the attractions and distractions of an amusement park stand in for the many abuses that the elderly face in society. 4K digital restoration commissioned by the George A. Romero Foundation and carried out by IndieCollect.
