When this email hit my inbox, I had to strain to recall precisely which new Night of the Living Dead it was about. Turns out that we’re talking about the UK-based remake of George Romero’s watershed gutmuncher here, and now it’s secured a pretty solid distribution deal here in the States.
According to Night of the Living Dead: Resurrected‘s official press release, Grindstone Entertainment Group has acquired North American distribution rights and will release the film through Lionsgate Home Entertainment. There’s no word on a release date yet, but look for more on this one soon, I’m sure.
“Based on the 1968 zombie classic, the story focuses on four generations of a British family trapped in a farmhouse in Wales during a zombie apocalypse.”
What’s the feedback on this one, folks? A worthy re-interpretation of the original? A pointless cash-in? Something else? Whatever the case may be, one thing’s certain: It’s already better than the 3D remake from a few years back.
