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.

Given the Criterion treatment and released on Blu-ray 19th February 2018 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, stark, haunting, and more relevant than ever, Night of the Living Dead is back, in a new 4K restoration.

  • Night of Anubis, a never-before-presented work-print edit of the film
