Official 'Night of the Living Dead' VR Coming in 2018 Alongside 50th Anniversary of Theatric
"They're coming to get you Barbara!"
It's no secret that the Boo Crew are big fans of George A. Romero's 1968 classic 'Night of the Living Dead'. (You can listen to Episode 1 of our podcast where we discuss zombies amongst our movie picks!) Next year marks the 50th Anniversary of the films release and we couldn't be more excited! The newly restored anniversary release will include a 4K Criterion Collection restoration.
Bloody Disgusting is reporting that the film is also getting the VR treatment from leading VR/360° production company Supersphere. The VR experience is scheduled to be released in 2018 alongside the release of the 50th anniversary or the original Night of the Living Dead theatrical release.
As virtual reality technology keeps evolving at an exponential pace, we expect some fun thrills and scares from this release. Looks like 2018 will be a year of zombie, er...ghoulish celebrations.
