Philadelphia-based film distribution company SpectiCast has just announced that it will release a colorized, 3D version of director George Romero’s original zombie classic, Night of the Living Dead, on October 24th. Romero, who pretty much birthed the entire zombie apocalypse industry, could not be reached for comment. I’m assuming he’s making some money on this deal and wouldn’t want to tell us how much he actually thinks this sucks. See the trailer below for proof of impending suckiness. What’s next, a Shining sequel? Oh, right. Next thing you know, they’ll be remaking Carrie and Evil Dead. Damn!
UPDATE: A reader points out that Night of the Living Dead is in the public domain.
