The plan was to take the weekend off and allow those Land of the Lost television clips to breathe a little longer, since the film version suffocated and collapsed at the box office this weekend (only $18 million over the three days to The Hangover‘s $42). Adding insult to injury, essentially.
But then I came across something bloody awesome over at Shock Til You Drop—-the inevitable monkey wrench. This forthcoming winter, an awesome-looking animated remix of Night of the Living Dead (aka, the first film I ever fell in love with), called Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated, will hit DVD shelves, much to the apprecation of my fellow Dead heads. On Friday, a poster for the innovative project surfaced:
After the jump, a description of what Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated is exactly, as well as a clip:
Organizer/Curator of the project, Mike Schneider, designed the poster as a small glimpse into the dozens of styles on display in the project, which features over 100 artists from around the world. Working from the same source, George Romero’s original Night of the Living Dead, each artist has taken scenes and ‘reanimated’ them through processes ranging from CGI to puppetry and oil paintings to tattoos. This creates a new viewing experience of a timeless classic.
