Bloody Disgusting Reviews Tonight of the Living Dead

This December is good one. We have all the holidays. Plenty of time off work. And yes, a free signed copy of 400 Lonely Things Tonight of the Living Dead. Check out the promotion over here and give it a listen. Horror website Bloody Disgusting interviewed Craig Varian – one of the founders of 400 Lonely Things – and talked about the production of the album at length. There are a lot of tasty nuggets of information in the writeup about about the album. For example, I’d like to mention that I avoided all of the dialog and the more obvious pieces of music and audio and kept this album strictly instrumental. For me, the scariest part of the film is Barbra’s few moments … Read entire article »

Cracked’s Recap of the Living Dead – Old and New

Ever funny top ten list producer Cracked wrote a nice little article about Night of the Living Dead. It’s really just a comparison piece between the old version of the movie and the remake that later followed. The article compares plot point by plot point and in the process, savages most of the women characters. Fear not, there is a disclaimer at the end of the piece: We at Cracked are not sexist, and do not condone sexist opinions towards…other sexes. However, you cannot deny that the women in this movie are idiots. … Read entire article »

December is a time of giving, and this month A World on Fire is giving away a free copy of 400 Lonely Thing’s Tonight of the Living Dead. If you are a fan of Night of the Living Dead, this album is a must have for your collection.

How does album accomplish this? It samples all of the music in the film, and repurposes it in dark melodious tones that add dark shadows to an already dark story. Tonight of the Living Dead isn’t so much a retelling of George Romero’s film as it is an illumination of … Read entire article »

A Taste of Tonight of the Living Dead

As some of you may know already, December’s giveaway is a signed CD of Tonight of the Living Dead by 400 Lonely Things. This begs the question, what is Tonight of the Living Dead? Who better to answer this question than from 400 Lonely Things directly. From the official site: Crew and cast member Karl Hardman, under the editorial supervision of George Romero, used recordings by other composers from stock film music libraries – many of which had already appeared in other movies and television shows – and then augmented them electronically to form their own original score for Night of the Living Dead. 400 Lonely Things has extended this notion of augmentation by using mutated samples from the film itself (many with their excellent foley work intact) … Read entire article »
