In 1967, George Romero gathered a handful of Pittburgh’s industrial film and TV commercial producers — they all wanted to make a movie. A horror film seemed like the right idea to them, and with a half-written script, they secured a house scheduled for demolition, clothes from goodwill, buckets of chocolate syrup, and various pieces of flesh from a local butcher. The scrappy, gory, black-and-white movie they made is a landmark of horror films, and created the zombie genre.
This showing is a new look at Night of the Living Dead. Ben Singer has re-edited the soundtrack, composed a new film score, and will perform the music live, accompanied by drummer Nicholas Falk.
