To celebrate the film’s 50th anniversary, Night of the Living Dead will be released on Blu-ray in the USA. The release comes courtesy of Mill Creek and will be released in time for Halloween on 3rd October.
It has already been announced that Night of the Living Dead will be receiving a 4k restoration later this year, so hardcore fans in the USA can catch that at the New York Film Forum on 13th October before a national rollout. We imagine that seeing the film on the big screen will be an awe-inspiring experience, so we’re disappointed to hear of no plans for a 4K screening in our neck of the woods.
Check out the original trailer from the 1968 film below. What’s it called again?
Mill Creek’s 2K blu-ray will be a new transfer and will feature the film in its original 1.37:1 aspect ratio. Be sure to grab yourself a copy from 3rd October.
