Fans of George A. Romero, you'll soon have a new film you need to see...
...Via THR, Yellow Veil Pictures has picked up the worldwide sales rights to the late, great George A. Romero's lost film, The Amusement Park! Having given us so many classics such as Night of the Living Dead, Creepshow, and more, fans have been aching to see this film, and it appears we'll all soon get that chance.
In The Amusement Park, originally made in 1973:
"An elderly man finds himself disoriented and increasingly isolated as the pains, tragedies, and humiliations of aging in America are illustrated by his journey among roller coasters and chaotic crowds."
Lincoln Maazel plays the elderly man.
The George A. Romero Foundation recently discovered the film and restored it under the direction of producer Suzanne Romero.
Said Suzanne Romero via the site, “Though not in the horror genre it is George’s most terrifying film. It has Romero’s unique footprint all over it!”
Yellow Veil Pictures will begin shopping the film this week at the virtual Cannes market.
