Arriving on DVD May 20th from Genius Products and Dimension Extreme are two George A. Romero classics, Night of the Living Dead in a special 40th Anniversary Edition and Diary of the Dead. Today we’ve been provided with three pairs for you lucky B-D readers to enter to win, read on to see how to enter.
With a story mixing elements of “The Blair Witch Project” and the long-running “Dead” series, the film will follow a group of college students shooting a horror movie in the woods who stumble upon a real zombie uprising. When the onslaught begins, they seize the moment as any good film students would, capturing the undead in a “cinema verite” style that causes more than the usual production headaches.
The film itself will be presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, along with an English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround. Genius Products and The Weinstein Company has provided us with artwork for Diary of the Dead which stars Michelle Morgan, Joshua Close, and Shawn Roberts. The George A. Romero directed film will be available to own from the 20th May, and should retail at around $24.95. The film itself will be presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, along with an English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround track. Extras will include a commentary by George A Romero, director of photography Adam Swica and editor Michael Doherty, a For the Record: The Making of Diary of the Dead documentary, and 4 featurettes (Character Confessionals, The First Week, The Roots, Familiar Voices).
The dead come back to life and eat the living in this low budget, black and white film. Several people barricade themselves inside a rural house in an attempt to survive the night. Outside are hordes of relentless, shambling zombies who can only be killed by a blow to the head.

Romero’s classic 1968 zombie flick Night of the Living Dead on DVD May 20, with plans to release an Blu-ray version later this year. The extra features will include Audio Commentary by George A.
