Tom Savini Remake of Night of the Living Dead Blu Ray Coming Soon!

This is huge news, I mean it really is huge news.  The 1990 Night of the Living Dead film, directed by Tom Savini, starring Tony Todd and Patricia Tallman is finally getting a region A blu ray release, FUCKING FINALLY!

Is it something to be truly excited about?  I was personally hoping for a Scream Factory, which made tons of sense with recent releases of Day of the Dead, Land of the Dead and the Zack Snyder remake of Dawn of the Dead.  If this is a good edition, all we need now is a good collector’s edition of Dawn of the Dead from 1978.  The Criterion Collection of the original Night of the Living Dead is gorgeous!

Bloody-Disgusting broke the news.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release the Blu-ray on October 23.  Here is the Amazon link.

On a related note, you can now pre-order the film’s soundtrack on vinyl!

“It’s a new night for terror – and a new dawn in horror movie-making when special-effects genius Tom Savini brings modern technology to this colorful remake of George A. Romero’s 1968 cult classic. Seven strangers are trapped in an isolated farmhouse while cannibalistic zombies – awakened from death by the return of a radioactive space probe – wage a relentless attack, killing (and eating) everyone in their path. The classic for the 90s: graphic, gruesome and more terrifying than ever!”

I have been watching horror films since I was 6 years old. The story, one Saturday night, my mom and I were watching movies and she fell asleep on the couch. We had the channel set on HBO and the movie we were watching ended and the next one, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. This was some time in 1986. I watched then entire film, I was sitting on the edge of my seat. When my mom woke, she asked me what just ended and I told her, “Freddy”. That was all I talked about for weeks and finally she broke down and rented more horror films for me. She rented, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre part 2, Re-Animator, Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives and Halloween II. I watched all and fell in love with horror films forever. 5 Horror Films to Watch Inferno (1980) A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) The Beyond (1981) Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives (1986) Horror of Dracula (1958)
