- General info
It's a new night for terror... and a new dawn in horror movie-making when special-effects genius Tom Savini (creator of the spectacularly gruesome make-up in Friday the 13th and Creepshow) brings modern technology to this colourful remake of George A. Romero's 1968 cult classic. Seven strangers are trapped in an isolated farmhouse while cannibalistic Zombies - awakened from death by the return of a radioactive space probe - wage a relentless attack, killing (and eating) everyone in their path.

- Night of The Living Dead: The Remake review by AER
This lively remake of George A Romero is an inside job produced by the maestro himself, alongside Menahem Globus (of Cannon Films notoriety) and directed by Tom Savini (the some-time actor and effects wizard from all the early DEAD films). The acting is OK from Patricia Tallman (Barbara), Tony Todd (Ben) (Candyman), Tom Towles (Cooper), and Bill Moseley (House of a 1000 Corpses) yet we've all seen so many ZOmbie films we'll be agog at the number of cardinal / common sense rules like doing a house sweep, or boarding up windows before the hordes turn up etc, etc. It does a fair job at reviewing certain parts of the first film to fit the later times (this was made in 1989 / released in UK cinemas in early 93) by making the heroine, Barbara more kick ass, adding changes to Ben's ultimate fate, and the coda. It's OK but its dated and been bettered by TV shows like The Walking Dead etc. Anyone coming to this as a newbie will find it rather quaint. One for completists and fans of Tony Todd - that are looking to see him excel in a rare leading role.
