George A. Romero’s groundbreaking, flesh-craving 1968 horror classic is getting a fully animated recreation this fall when Night of the Animated Dead shambles to Digital on September 21 and Blu-ray Combo Pack / DVD on October 5, from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Today, fright fans are treated to a taste with the reveal of both the green band and red band trailers for the R-rated 2D feature, presented by The Long Game in association with Hemisphere Ent. and animated by Demente Animation Studio.
In Night of the Animated Dead, siblings Barbara and Johnny visit their father’s grave in a remote cemetery in Pennsylvania when they are suddenly set upon by zombies. Barbara flees and takes refuge in an abandoned farmhouse along with stranded motorist Ben and four local survivors found hiding in the cellar. Together, the group must fight to stay alive against the oncoming horde of zombies while also confronting their own fears and prejudices.
