George A. Romero’s zombie classic Night of the Living Dead is coming out as an animated movie Night of the Animated Dead. The first trailer for this upcoming movie has been released, and it’s not that good. It’s a low-budget movie, which is really a shame. Night of the Living Dead is the most amazing and important zombie film ever made, and it deserves better.
In Night of the Animated Dead, “siblings Barbara and Johnny visit their father’s grave in a remote cemetery in Pennsylvania when they are suddenly set upon by zombies. Barbara flees and takes refuge in an abandoned farmhouse along with stranded motorist Ben and four local survivors found hiding in the cellar. Together, the group must fight to stay alive against the oncoming horde of zombies while also confronting their own fears and prejudices.”
The movie was directed by Jason Axinn, and the voice cast includes Josh Duhamel, Dulé Hill, Katharine Isabelle, Stefan Marks, James Roday Rodriguez, Katee Sackhoff, Jimmi Simpson, Nancy Travis, and Will Sasso.
The movie will be on September 21, 2021, on Digital, and October 5, 2021, on Blu-Ray.
