Over the years we have heard of many documentaries that would chronicle the career of George A. Romero. We have also seen plenty of them that follow Dawn of the Dead. Now we have one that will explore the birth of Night of the Living Dead, Birth of the Living Dead.
Rob Kuhns’ feature documentary Birth of the Living Dead goes beyond just being a tribute to director George Romero’s work to explore a critical moment in the American experience and the notion that horror acts as a reflection of national anxiety. The film details how Romero gathered an unlikely team of real Pittsburgh citizens — police officers, iron workers, teachers, housewives, and a roller-rink owner — to shoot in a revolutionary guerrilla style that became a cinematic landmark and one of the most visceral and influential horror films ever made.
Below you can check out the new trailer and poster for the film. Stay tuned to find out when you can watch this film for yourself.
