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 A mistake on the part of the Distributor, and outdated copyright law, left the film without enforceable federal copyright protection from the waves of home video distributors that sprang up from the 1980s to the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.
