Night of the Animated Dead Adaptation Gets Release Date and Box Art

Night of the Animated Dead, an animated adaptation of George A. Romero’s classic zombie flick Night of the Living Dead has found its release date — just in time for Halloween.

Night of the Animated Dead is written by John A. Russo and directed by Jason Axinn, who previously brought to life his own animated horror, To Your Last Death in 2019. George A. Romero’s low-budget independent horror film, Night of the Living Dead, became a cult classic after its 1968 release. It was set in a quaint rural farmhouse in the western reaches of Pennsylvania, utilizing a core group of seven strangers who were trapped within the house as a legion of cannibalistic ghouls tried to get inside. The film became an inspiration for untold numbers of zombie enthusiasts, influenced by the unique — yet never called “zombie” creatures.

In Night of the Animated Dead, Barbara and Johnny visit their father’s grave which is located at a remote Pennsylvanian cemetery when they suddenly find themselves swarmed by zombies. Barbara flees to a farmhouse and finds herself trapped there with a group of strangers as the zombies overcome the property.
