– From Time Out New York—
“George A. Romero’s 1968 seismic Night of the Living Dead has long since lumbered its way into the hearts of zombie fans and social critics who thrilled to its America-on-fire subtext. Can there be even more to dig up under the desiccated surface? Rob Kuhns’s jam-packed analysis—several grades better than a DVD extra—has the appetite to find it. Here, says director Larry Fessenden, is horror’s first in-joke (“They’re coming to get you, Barbara…”), a wink with a payoff more brutal than any Scream gag….Kuhns makes time for political insights, provocative montages of race riots cut with the movie’s hick militia, and the comments of owlish Romero himself, who recounts the shoot like the enthusiastic 27-year-old he was. Wildest is a classroom of Bronx kids learning literacy (and proper stomping) via the film’s power.”

– Horrornews.net gives BOTLD five shrouds–
“It’s absolutely the best and most definitive documentary on Night Of The Living Dead ever produced and one of my favorite films of the year.”
And in honor of the film’s New York opening, a party was held at Posteritati in Manhattan, with an exhibit of zombie movie posters and the unveiling of the BOTLD Zombie Photo Contest poster. Check out photos from the event–
And we’re excited to present the poster art for the BIRTH OF THE LIVING DEAD Zombie Photo Contest—
