Night of the Living Dead Merch Attack

I'm a sucker for a great horror movie soundtrack, so I was thrilled to find out that Zero Day Releasing had unleashed a complete mono release of the library music and cues used in George Romero's Night of the Living Dead. The music, purchased by the Pittsburgh filmmakers from the Capitol Hi-Q library, includes cues that were previously used in Teenagers From Outer Space and The Hideous Sun Demon. By all accounts the new CD is a vast improvement over the old Varese Sarabande LP.

Even better, I just learned that New York Daily News columnist and VideoScope editor Joe Kane (a.k.a. The Phantom of the Movies) has published a new book on the making of Romero's zombie opus through Citadel. The book, which includes interviews with most of the principals, will be available on Aug. 31.

Ken has also included interviews and remembrances from Frank Henenlotter, Allan Arkush, and Lloyd Kaufman.
