NOTLD DOCUMENTARY BIRTH OF THE LIVING DEAD GETS A RELEASE DATE!

Birth Of The Living Dead Banner

In 1968 a young college drop-out and aspiring filmmaker named George A. Romero directed Night of the Living Dead, a low-budget horror film that shocked the world, became an icon of the counterculture, and invented the modern movie zombie, which has spawned legions of films, books, comics, and video games, generating billions of dollars.

Robert Kuhns’s BIRTH OF THE LIVING DEAD, a new documentary available on iTunes October 15 and limited theaters October 18, shows how Romero gathered an unlikely team of Pittsburghers — policemen, iron workers, teachers, ad-men, housewives and a roller-rink owner — to shoot, with a revolutionary guerrilla, run-and-gun style, his seminal film.
