Tom Savini’s 1990 version of the George A. Romero classic Night of the Living Dead is coming to limited edition Blu-ray courtesy of Screen Archives Entertainment, and we’ve got the skinny on what to expect.

The film stars Tony Todd, Patricia Tallman, McKee Anderson, William Butler, Tom Towles, Katie Finnerman, and Bill Moseley. Special features include an isolated score track, an audio commentary with filmmaker Tom Savini, and the original theatrical trailer. The release date is October 9th.

The only hitch? This Blu-ray is limited to a run of only 3,000, and the ONLY way to get it is to order directly from Screen Archives Entertainment here.

Synopsis
Night of the Living Dead (1990)—a George Romero-approved remake of his 1968 cult horror classic directed by makeup wizard Tom Savini—tells once again the chilling tale of seven people holed-up in a farmhouse besieged by armies of the undead. As the terrified little group fight for their lives, they begin to find themselves as plagued by the evil lurking within as by the ravening flesh-eaters battering on hastily boarded-up windows and doors. “Splatter King” Savini keeps things moving—and the blood flowing—as the survivors dwindle one by one.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    I’ve never seen the workprint but the UK DVD at least had the deleted gore scenes as an extra. There was also an interview with Savini in which he goes on about how he now thinks the film plays better in its castrated “R” version. I’d have preferred a release that offers both versions and lets the viewers make up their own minds but I’ll still pre-order this BD, of course. If it sells out as quickly as Screen Archives Entertainment’s FRIGHT NIGHT (1985) BD then everybody with an interest had better hurry up, too.

    one of my favorite 90’s horror movies

    I like Savini’s NOTLD. It’s not in the league of Romero’s but it’s a lot of fun and really creepy.

    • livingzombie79

      Savini purely directed it…Romero still wrote it, well re-wrote it, without John Russo in the 68 version. So this version is PURELY Romero, please know your stuff before sounding…STUPID. :) Good day ignorant sir.

    Bummer, I thought there would be more goodies. I’ll still get it though. I think the remake is way too underrated.

    • Uncle Creepy

      Ever see the work print? It’s fucking awesome. One of the best head-explosions ever!

      • Diavolo

        Better than his one in Maniac?

      • Terminal

        Savini’s NOTLD is a neutered dumbed down version of Romero’s vision, but it’s still a lot of fun and scary as hell. And Tony Todd. Nuff said.

            Kind of an overreaction for a discussion about NOTLD, but at least you called me sir.
