Savini’s Original Vision Of ‘Night 90’ To Be Revealed At Long Last

Any fan or follower of George Romero’s Living Dead universe is well versed in Tom Savini’s 1990 remake and the (for lack of a better word) controversy that has surrounded it. For decades Savini has maintained that his original concept – his vision of this extraordinary tale – never seen the light of day, and he had the proof.

A series of original storyboards that highlight the gags and truly original take that Tom and his crew had in store for us. Until now only a select few had ever laid eyes on the coveted artwork but that is all about to change.

Happy Cloud Media has teamed up with Savini to bring us Night of the Living Dead 1990: The Unseen Version. The press release unveils all the info:

” In 1990, the eagerly-awaited remake of the seminal horror film, Night of the Living Dead, was released to theaters. Produced by the original team, the new film had a director in special effects maestro Tom Savini. His vision for the film was a gutsy, visual feast that would, he promised, “make death scary again.”

Disappointingly, for one reason or another, many of Savini’s most outrageous sequences were left unfilmed and unrealized. Now, for the first time, fans of the film can see for themselves the director’s unique vision for Night of the Living Dead 1990.

Happy Cloud Media, LLC is proud to announce the upcoming publication of Mr. Savini’s storyboards as realized by artist Brad Hunter, never before available in their entirety, and thoroughly annotated by the director himself.

Accompanied throughout by rare behind-the-scenes set photos, Night of the Living Dead 1990: The Unseen Version will be a valued addition to any horror fan’s bookshelf. A rare glimpse into the work done prior to the cameras rolling, before the first actor is cast, there is the script, the director, and the ideas.

Details on price, dimensions and additional content will be forthcoming. For now, those interested are invited to keep checking the official Happy Cloud Media, LLC website preorder information.

Night of the Living Dead 1990: The Unseen Version will be paperback and is slated for an October 2019 release.”
