Grade: C5 Very Good to Fine. Folded, single-sided. Prior to linen backing this was a theater used poster with moderate handling/edge/fold wear. Poster was exposed to moisture and had water staining on the back, some of which slightly bled through to the front, and paper had become somewhat acid tanned. Now appears very fine to near mint.
Framing: List prices are for posters only. Please inquire to discuss framing options.
Here it is, the granddaddy of all zombie movies! Whether you are a modern, fast-zombie fan or if you are a slow-zombie traditionalist — there is no doubting the importance of George Romero’s 1968 classic, The Night of the Living Dead. The low-budget, black & white masterpiece set the mold for all the film and TV series to follow including: Dan O’Bannon’s Return of the Living Dead, 28 Days Later, Re-Animator, Evil Dead, The Walking Dead and even Romero’s own many “of the Dead” follow-ups like Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, Land of the Dead, etc… There have been many imitators, but only one true classic!
This amazing, atmospheric UK quad poster has a unique design not seen in any other country. The simple black & white design and foreboding skull appropriately set the mood for cinema goers! This poster extremely rare and few have ever surfaced given the low-budget, low-key nature of the release.
