THE OFFICIAL HOME VIDEO HISTORY OF NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD
In 1968, Night of the Living Dead changed the landscape of the American horror film. A mistake on the part of the Distributor, and outdated copyright law, left the film without enforceable federal copyright protection from the waves of home video distributors that sprang up from the 1980s to the present. Hundreds of different VHS, Betamax, Laserdisc, DVD, Blu-Ray and a myriad of other niche formats have been released worldwide.
Author and Living Dead collector Geoff Turner has meticulously cataloged video box art, promotional materials and distribution details gathered from collectors around the globe to assemble the definitive compendium of the home video history of Night of the Living Dead.

ADVERTISING NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD
Night of the Living Dead’s newspaper advertising campaign would go through many changes over the years as the film’s apparent public domain status became more widely known. Theaters and drive-ins would begin to concoct their own mash ups using bits and pieces of the original ad campaign materials, and sometimes, completely new pieces of artwork. Over 1,100 of those ads from 1968 to the early 1980’s are collected here.
