There aren’t many films to which you can point and say, “That created a genre.” But the late director George Romero’s 1968 zombie classic Night of the Living Dead is one of them.

Now the groundbreaking and hugely influential tale of cannibalistic undead ghouls is being re-released in a newly restored version, courtesy of the Museum of Modern Art and the Film Foundation. The 4K restoration will open at New York’s Film Forum cinema Oct. 13, followed by a national rollout. Night of the Living Dead is also being screened by Cinespia at Hollywood Forever Cemetery on Oct. 21, which, as those familiar with the film’s opening scenes will be aware, is a very appropriate venue.

Funding for the restoration was provided by the George Lucas Family Foundation and the Celeste Bartos Fund for Film Preservation. The restoration was overseen by Romero (who died in July) and Image Ten — most especially, Gary Streiner, Russ Streiner, and John Russo — with restoration work done by Cineric Inc. in New York City and Audio Mechanics in Burbank, California.

Watch the exclusive trailer for the Night of the Living Dead restoration above.
