Night Of The Living Dead (Behind The Scenes Of The Most Terrifying Zombie Movie Ever) by Joe Kane offers fresh insight into the classic 1968 George A. Romero zombie horror film of the same name. Shot on a shoe-string budget of $114,000, the film grossed over $12 million domestically and $18 million internationally and remains a hit with audiences even today. Joe Kane – recognised as ‘the best movie critic in America’ by Entertainment Weekly – not only goes behind the scenes of this classic horror film, but also details the five-decade legacy that it has created. The book also includes the original Night Of The Living Dead screenplay by John Russo.
