Prepare to step back and rewatch Night of the Living Dead but this time through sound. Introducing the December giveaway – Tonight of the Living Dead. It is journey a though George Romero’s groundbreaking apocalypse via. the melancholic notes of 400 Lonely Things. This is the December giveaway and it is a wonderful treat for your ears.
Here’s a more formal description from the 400 Lonely Things website:
While the film is noted for how it straddles a line between social commentary and drive-in shlock with a kind of clunky elegance, 400 lonely things’ tonight of the living dead is concerned with the more understated and haunting moments of this movie, focusing on the fragility of “barbra” and drawing out the sense of bewildering relentlessness and hypnotic inevitability of waiting in an old farm-house for the world to end.
It is hoped that tonight of the living dead will somehow add to the legacy of this film in some tiny way, rather than take from it. It is respectfully dedicated to the late karl hardman and all who worked on the original soundtrack, the imagery is dedicated to judy o’dea, “the music box” is for kyra schon, and of course the big picture is for george romero.
