From the master of horror, George A. Romero comes his long-lost masterpiece; the critically acclaimed and genuinely terrifying thrill ride The Amusement Park.
Discovered and restored some 46 years after its completion, this haunting tour-de-force from the maestro who brought us seminal greats Night Of The Living Dead, Dawn Of The Dead, and Day Of The Dead, to name a few, was finally released in cinemas in 2019. Now, this Shudder Exclusive gets its UK Blu-ray, DVD, and digital release this Autumn.
The film makes its home entertainment bow on 17 October 2022 from Acorn Media International and comes complete with stunning artwork and a host of brand-new special features. These include audio commentary with Michael Gornick, separate interviews with Suzanne Desrocher-Romero, Bonnie Hinzman, and Ryan Carr with a fascinating panel interview. There’s also the official brochure, the script, and behind-the-scenes photos; please see the full list below, making this Shudder Exclusive the must-have release this Halloween.
An older man (Lincoln Maazel – Martin) goes for what he assumes will be an ordinary day at the amusement park, only to find himself in the middle of a hellish nightmare. Amid the rollercoasters and chaotic crowds, he becomes increasingly disoriented and isolated; as the pain, tragedies and
humiliations of ageing in America are played out before him…
Perhaps Romero’sRomero’s wildest and most imaginative creation – an alarming and absurd allegory about the nightmares of growing older. The Amusement Park provides a fascinating insight into the legendary filmmaker’s early artistic vision and is not to be missed.
