Good news for UK fans of Romero; while his more recent output has been of questionable quality to say the least, there has always been unwavering support for his early work and a never-ending interest in the films that arguably made zombie movies as popular as they are today. New kid on the UK distribution block Solo Media has picked up Birth of the Living Dead, a documentary that tells the story of Romero's rise to success via interviews and animations by Gary Pullin. Read on for everything you need to know.


Birth Of The Living Dead Title


In 1968 a young college drop-out named George A. Romero gathered an unlikely team - from Pittsburgh policeman, iron workers, housewives and a roller rink owner – to create a low budget horror film that would revolutionise the industry, and spawn a new flesh eating monster that endures to this day... that film was Night of The Living Dead.

Birth of the Living Dead is the story of how they managed to pull off the greatest guerrilla shoot of all time. This documentary includes exclusive new interviews with the godfather of zombie films George A. Romero himself, as well as brand new animations created by Gary Pullin. Put together with 60’s archival footage this film shows just how politically charged Night was, set against the backdrop of race riots and Vietnam the film challenged the establishment and had enormous fun doing it.

With a range of candid interviews and fascinating insight Birth of the Living Dead is an absolute must have for any horror fan, enter the original Zombie Universe, but remember "they are coming to get you, Barbara"...


Birth of the Living Dead will hit DVD and VOD on 12th May 2014.
