The dead are rising once again, as George Romero’s classic zombie flick is getting an animated edition, with Warner Bros’ Night of the Animated Dead.
They’re coming to get you
If you’re a zombie film fan, then you know Night of the Living Dead well. For that matter, you probably have seen the followups as well, and of course all of the volumes of homages that’ve popped up over the years.
This new upcoming movie though, is the original retold. So you have the setting, characters, and zombies from that original 1968 movie, but brought over into the animated realm. And so far it’s looking pretty cool.
It’s also coming up fast, as it begins launching on home video formats this month. But before we get to that, there’s a fresh set of images from the film to check out. Accompanied by some light details from the movie, these new shots should whet your appetite for what’s to come.
Night of the Animated Dead takes a bite out of digital on September 21st, and Blu Ray Combo Pack and DVD formats on the 5th of October. That should make for some nice Halloween viewing.
