Publisher's Summary

You Won't Believe...
An abandoned hilltop farmhouse. Seven desperate people, and a surrounding darkness ripped by bloodcurdling cries of anguish. A state of emergency has been declared: the unimaginable is happening in the night.

Pray for Morning...
Out of the night they come. Filling the air with chilling howls, the dead are rising from their graves, bent on feeding on the flesh and blood of the living. They seek out human life. And these monstrous corpses will let nothing stand in their way as they hunt down the living to satisfy their own evil desires.

This fully dramatized tale of absolute terror features the original cast of the cult classic.

    "BOOOOO!!!"

    Awful - and I say that as a true lover of zombie stories and one who really appeciated the original film. First, be warned, if you listen to this with headphines have your fnger on the volume button AT ALL times if you value your hearing and want to avoid some real pain. He woman randomly screaming is not balanced with the voume of the speech, and is like a shrill, random siren blasted in your ears.

    Aside from that - I don't recall racism being as overt and such a nasty, hateful motivation and subject of discussion in the original, and it didn't help in this version. I think the president speaking was supposed to be some kind of ROnald Reagan impersonation, which was just embarassingly bad, and I truly don't see the point of that. He main character lost much of the sympathy and ALL of the admirable chracteristics from the film, and was just some nasty monster. Also, the foul language really dumbed down the story - there was none of that in the film...

    So, to sum up, this is a truly awful version of the original, and he makers should be embarassed - they really stunk up the story - making it stupid, cheap, common, boring and difficult to listen to.

    "Entertaining"

    An over the top dramatization of the classic George Romero story. You can tell the actors had a lot of fun which makes the audiobook that much more enjoyable. A fun listen but watch out for the occasional F-bomb.

    "Cheesy but fun"

    The dialog is pretty cheesy, even for a Romero creation. Still a good quick read for the classic zombie & George Romero lovers out there. Worth checking out. Full cast of characters and Romero himself narates.

    "Plenty of gore"

    An enjoyable dramatisation. Watch out for bad language if younger teens are listening to this. Keeps you on the egde of your seat.

    "a fun filled fright fest"

    This dramatization of the classic zombie movie is really a lot of fun to listen to. Any fan of zombies or radio drama will enjoy this production.

    "Not the book or movie -- but fun!"
    Where does Night of the Living Dead (Dramatized) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's not the best one I've owned or listened to, but it's very entertaining. I first read the novel and heard the audiobook a loooong time ago so I was glad to find it here. Like the movie, this audiobook seemed to be made on a pretty tight budget. Sometimes those are the best ones..


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Night of the Living Dead (Dramatized)?

    The parts with Ben and Harry Cooper. Waaay more harsh verbally than in the movie. I can see some people being uncomfortable with the dialogue. As one reviewer pointed out, they seemed to have fun making this.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Generally, the whole thing is fun and amusing!


    Any additional comments?

    Some people will curse me for giving this audiobook so many stars; I don't care. I enjoyed it!

    "Not what I was expecting from a classic"

    A nice Dramatized version, but the voice of Ben just doesn't match the character at all. The reading is kind of fast and lacks any sense of horror or impending doom.

    Foul language is used a lot, so you probably won't be able to listen to it if kids are around.
