Night of the Living Dead

USA, 1990
Director: Tom Savini
Starring: Tony Todd, Patricia Tallman, Tom Towles, Bill Moseley, Heather Mazur

Poster for the first release in Japan, in 1991.


  1. Are you sure this isn't for the 1990s remake? I know it says George A Romero's name at the top, but it uses the same images for the Japanese VHS ( here, and this VHS is for the 1990s version. Hmm.

  2. You're right! I didn't even know there was a remake in 1990. And directed by Tom Savini too... interesting. Thanks for the heads-up.

  3. According to Japanese wikipedia, Savini's name in Japanese is トム・サヴィーニ. I think I see some similar characters on the bottom left in this poster. But I can't tell from this size if it's the same or not.

  4. Its definitely the Savini version ... I have confirmed it from a couple of different sources. And yes thats his name on the poster, although Romero still gets top billing! Great to clear that one up, but whatever version, I still dig the poster :)
