“Closer than anything we’ve seen to the definitive version of the film.” – George A. Romero.
You’ve probably seen Night of the Living Dead countless times on countless different formats from countless different companies, but you’ve never seen it like this before.
Under the supervision of George A. Romero, Gary Streiner, Russ Streiner, and John Russo, the Museum of Modern Art and The Film Foundation restored the seminal classic in 4K from the original camera negative prior to Romero’s passing, and Janus Films has acquired the restoration for theatrical exhibition.
Throughout October, beginning on Friday, October 13 at NY’s Film Forum, the restoration is hitting the road and stopping off in several cities across the United States.

“What we have now, for good or for bad, is exactly what I shot,” Romero said of the digital restoration just last year. “This is closer than anything we’ve seen to the definitive version of the film. It’s in the right format, 1.33:1, and that’s never been seen before either.”
