So on a whim Chris and I decided to stick around for the late night panels, the final panel being ”Night of The Living Dead: Reanimated”
Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated is a mass collaborative artistic re-envisioning of George A. Romero’s 1968 cult classic,Night of the Living Dead. International artists and animators were invited to select scenes from the film and reinvent them through their artwork.
Open to all styles, media and processes the results ran the gamut with scenes created in everything from puppet theater to CGI, hand drawn animation to flash, and oil paintings to tattoos.
This cacophony of works was organized and curated across the original film’s time line in order to create a completely original video track made entirely out of art.
The result of this project is an experimental take on the cult classic. What it forfeits in visual continuity, it gains in variety.
If you are looking for a tried and true horror film, then go see George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead.
If you are looking for a film that approaches the horror genres from an entirely new direction, then prepare yourself for the mindbending artistry that is Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated.
Here’s the trailer for you
