New on Video: "Night of the Living Dead" - The Criterion Collection [4K UHD]

Order now from Amazon.


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 a great story 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, combining gruesome gore with acute social commentary and quietly breaking ground by casting a Black actor (Duane Jones) in its lead role.

Special features:

  • 4K digital restoration, supervised by director George A. Romero
  • "Night of Anubis," a work-print edit of the film
  • Two audio commentaries featuring Romero, the film's producer and coscreenwriter, and others
  • Program featuring filmmakers Frank Darabont, Guillermo del Toro, and Robert Rodriguez
  • And more
