October is a scary month. This Halloween, the Criterion Collection will be showing “Night of the Living Dead,” one of the greatest horror movies ever made, as well as a genuinely spooky thriller by David Lynch, a current Guatemalan folk horror film, a story set in the South of England, a new Japanese horror classic, and more.
The aforementioned “Night of the Living Dead” is the featured title in Criterion’s October lineup.
The iconic George A. Romero zombie movie is finally receiving the 4K Criterion treatment, which includes a UHD release with a 4K digital restoration, along with a wealth of extras like interviews with directors Frank Darabont, Guillermo del Toro, and Robert Rodriguez, a work-print version of the movie, as well as two audio commentaries.
Night of the Living Dead’s final release appears to be this one.
Not to be outdone, Criterion is really stacking October with some amazing releases like “Eve’s Bayou,” the captivating feature debut of filmmaker Kasi Lemmons, Guatemalan master Jayro Bustamante’s most recent horror movie, “La Llorona,” Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s groundbreaking horror movie, “Cure,” and Frank Capra’s 1944 classic, “Arsenic and Old Lace.”
