Synopsis : Night Of The Living Dead DVD (1968) George A. Romero
The Original Classic
I am delighted that there is finally a "collector's edition" version of Night Of The Living Dead, and I am particularly pleased that the video transfer was so affectionately supervised by people who care about the quality of the original film.
Night has had an erratic distribution pattern. Even its original theatrical release was launched with film prints that were often dark and muddy, prompting journalists to criticize the "amateurish visual style" and to speculate that the film was originally photographed in 16mm.
Now that this excellent copy has been made from the original 35mm negatives, I hope viewers will be able to better appreciate the intention of the high-contrast images and understand that their starkness evokes, rather than undermine, the necessary sense of "presence" which, I believe, gives the film its teeth (no pun intended).
Night Of The Living Dead was made by a small group of very dedicated individuals whose contributions can now be seen and heard more clearly than in any previously released version in any format.
I thank those individuals, many of them still good friends, for their labors. I'm sorry it took so long for those labors to be showcased in a form that so closely approximates those first oh-so-enthusiastic screenings of the sound-interlocked work-print at The Latent Image, in Pittsburgh. I'm grateful that we can now have a good copy of this film in our personal libraries, and that viewers, new and old, can see it as it was meant to be seen.
