This year marks the 50th anniversary of arguably the most influential horror movie of all-time, George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead. Maybe you've already paid tribute to the classic film by watching it this past October, but if you really want to "let the ghoul times roll," then you'll be excited to know that Living Dead Media and Image Ten, Inc. have teamed up to launch a Kickstarter campaign for Night of the Living Dead party gear to help you and your friends celebrate in killer style, and there's less than two days left to support the ambitious celebration of Romero's classic film.

Updated: "Night of the Living Dead Fans,

We have some great news!!! Our Kickstarter to celebrate 50 years of Night of the Living Dead has surpassed 100% funding with 2 days to go!!

There still is time to get ahold of the EXCLUSIVE merchandise that isn’t available anywhere else, including everything you need to celebrate the 50th Anniversary!

Visit the Kickstarter HERE

As a reminder, we’ve partnered with Image Ten to create a Kickstarter to celebrate the 50th Anniversary. The Kickstarter will close at 11:59pm on Friday, November 30th, so time is running out!

Some of the awesome items include:

  • First ever Night of the Living Dead Karen Cooper Geeki Tiki
  • Night of the Living Dead playing cards in a VHS style box
  • 16oz Living Dead Nite Tankard glasses w/handles
  • Glow-in-the-dark 50th Anniversary enamel pin
  • Night of the Living Dead shirts and posters
  • Night of the Living Dead barrel cooler bag
  • Night of the Living Dead beer tap handle
  • Night of the Living Dead vintage cork coasters, koozies, and shot glasses
  • Night of the Living Dead mystery box

A quick word on us, Living Dead Media (LDM). LDM was formed to both serve the fan bases of the Living Dead movies and to work with / for the original film makers and the actors (and in some cases their families and estates) to ensure they benefit directly from everything we do. In terms of the original Night of the Living Dead film, I'm sure you're not surprised to hear that George A. Romero and the actors have made very little off the films. If it's not licensed by us or Image Ten, the actors and Romero's aren’t getting to benefit from it.

Help us make this Kickstarter a true success!"

Previously: Depending on which tier level you choose, the Kickstarter campaign for the Night of the Living Dead party gear includes a wide range of collectibles, including glassware, playing cards, a Karen Cooper tiki mug, a bottle opener, enamel pin, party balloons, tap handle, and more.

For the full list of details, visit the official Kickstarter campaign page, and read on for additional information, including special video messages from Night of the Living Dead co-creator John A. Russo and co-star Judith O'Dea!

"Do you love horror films, zombies, and Night of the Living Dead? Do these things hold a special place in your heart? Have you been looking for a way to celebrate the film's 50th Anniversary? For those who answered YES, this Kickstarter is for you!!

Over the years, we've been to some pretty awesome "Night of the Living Dead" and zombie themed parties. They've been so great we decided that everyone should be able to have a blast when they party. So, we got together to create the ultimate Night of the Living Dead Party Kickstarter. No matter what you’re celebrating or where you’re doing it, this Party Kickstarter will make it memorable.

Our Party Kickstarter will get you all the gear -- from glassware, to ambiance, to Night of the Living Dead playing cards -- complete with lists of party ideas, games, and the "rules" for throwing an amazing Night of the Living Dead party. Just as there are rules to zombie movies, there are rules to zombie parties, so the Party Kickstarter will come with a complete guidebook packed full of great suggestions from what to wear, games to play, festive drink recipes, and recommendations for what to serve to your zombie loving revelers. Along with rules, like you have to be playing the film on a loop (not the colorized version, of course).

So, if you love zombies and Night of the Living Dead and want to share a special night with your friends, we'll have you covered to have your very own Party Night....of the Living Dead. You'll have people breaking down the doors to get in (but, in a good way)!

Why are we doing this? We're Living Dead Media and we've partnered with Image Ten, Inc. (the original production company of Night of the Living Dead) to celebrate the 50-year legacy of Night of the Living Dead. With Image Ten leading the way, we got the film back in theaters last month, created limited edition 50th anniversary collectibles, and now with the full support of Image Ten, we're creating this exclusive and official Night of the Living Dead Party Kickstarter.

But we need your help. To make this Party Kickstarter truly great, we need your support. Because this creation is going to launch so many parties and celebrations, it has to look amazing, be official and exclusive, pay homage to the film, and give people everything they need to have the best night ever. So, however you party, wherever you party, even if you party alone, you should support this project because you'll be rewarded not only with all the gear you need to throw a bash, but also with all the good times and memories you’ll have."
