As much as horror fans tend to love Tom Savini‘s 1990 version of Night of the Living Dead, a damn fine remake, it’s no secret that the film doesn’t quite represent Savini’s intended vision from the outset. “The movie is about forty percent of what I intended,” Savini once said. “It would be a much better movie if I had got to put in all the stuff I really wanted to do.”
If you’ve ever been curious to experience Savini’s original vision for the remake, you’ll definitely want to pick up Night of the Living Dead 1990: The Unseen Version later this year, a paperback book just announced this morning by Happy Cloud Media. Through storyboard art, annotated by Savini himself, the book will present Savini’s planned vision…
“Disappointingly, for one reason or another, many of Savini’s most outrageous sequences were left unfilmed and unrealized. Now, for the first time, fans of the film can see for themselves the director’s unique vision for Night of the Living Dead 1990.
Happy Cloud Media, LLC is proud to announce the upcoming publication of Mr. Savini’s storyboards as realized by artist Brad Hunter, never before available in their entirety, and thoroughly annotated by the director himself.
Accompanied throughout by rare behind-the-scenes set photos, Night of the Living Dead 1990: The Unseen Version will be a valued addition to any horror fan’s bookshelf. A rare glimpse into the work done prior to the cameras rolling, before the first actor is cast, there is the script, the director, and the ideas.”
The book is scheduled to release in October 2019.
