This year marks the 50th anniversary of one of the most influential horror movies of all time: George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead. Fright Rags will be celebrating the godfather of all modern zombie movies with new apparel all year long, and today they revealed the first round of shirts based on the classic film, with designs approved by surviving members of the cast and crew.

Along with the new Night of the Living Dead shirt designs (coming out this Wednesday, April 18th), Fright Rags announced the April 20th "Classick" re-release of Jeff Zornow's The Burning shirt design, as well as Fangoria T-shirts and enamel pins (coming April 24th) exciting Alien Day (April 26th) releases (including a miniature reproduction of the 1979 Alien Halloween mask), and vintage Halloween shirts and enamel pins featuring some familiar faces from horror and sci-fi!

You can view images of the upcoming apparel below, and be sure to keep an eye on Fright Rags' official website for more details in the coming weeks!

From Ben Scrivens at Fright Rags: "I’m thrilled to announce the first part of our OFFICIALLY LICENSED 50th Anniversary Collection for NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, coming this Wednesday, April 18 at 10am. The is just the first of many, as we have lots planned for this classic film.

While a mistake to file a copyright upon its initial released landed the film in public domain, steps have been take in recent years to give the control and ownership of the film back to the original filmmakers. All of the products we will be releasing for this classic film have been approved by the film’s surviving filmmakers and cast, along with the estates of those who have passed."
