They’re coming to get you, [your name]. George A. Romero‘s horror classic Night of the Living Dead returns to theaters nationwide October 24th & 25th from Fathom Events. Because Romero originally registered the trademark for the film under Night of the Flesh Eaters, Night of the Living Dead fell into public domain, meaning that the film was widely available but often in prints that were scratched to hell and overexposed. But earlier this year, Janus Films and the Criterion Collection released a restored version of the film, spearheaded by the good people at the Museum of Modern Art, the Film Foundation, The George Lucas Family Foundation, and the Celeste Bartos Film Preservation Center. Romero’s classic that created the zombie genre and it has never looked better. That print is the one that Fathom Events will be showing in theaters during the limited run, so you better believe that you’re getting a top quality restoration of a classic work of horror.
Tickets for the Fathom Events presentation of the restored Night of the Living Dead are on sale now. Go to the Fathom Events website and see where one of the greatest horror films ever made is playing and get your tickets now. 50 years after it first terrified audiences, Night of the Living Dead endures without any rot. It’s still a brutal work of horror filmmaking and thanks to this new restoration it looks better than ever.
