This is the one to buy on Bluray.
The one with the white borders around the cover,it is a great print Taken from 35mm and it shows,
in its original ratio1.37 also original music score,
and a 1.23 Documentary as well.which is excellent.

THE OTHER BLURAY RELEASE . The print is a bit washed out in places and NO Doco.
Hope this helps.

This (contender) dvd release is one of the worst i have seen... it has at least 5cuts and the transfer is a poor compared to elite's millenium edition. if you want to buy this exellent clessic film, just do not by this version! i recommend Elite Entertainment - Millennium Edition.

Not only does this release have a weak transfer it's also a very heavily censored print.

It's nothing to do with the BBFC and everything to do with the awful print 'Contender' submitted to them.

At least 4 shots of flesh eating are missing from the 'barbecue' scene and the infamous 'trowel murder' has been reduced from 14 stabs to only 3 (almost the entire scene has gone).

Forget what the other reviewer says. This is one of the worst versions of the film in the UK and is a disgraceful release for a truly ground-breaking classic of the horror genre.

AS previous posters have noted there are loads of different editions now out of Night Of the Living Dead. If you love the original version of this film and do NOT want the god-awful special editions with either the horrible 'new-score' synth soundtrack (Scott Vladimir Licina) which ruins the film. Or the mind-bendingly bad new 18 minutes of extra footage re-shot in the late 90's which is even worse (thanks to John Russo), then be very careful which version you buy.
I bought the ORACLE version - mistake - no new footage but DOES have the new score. If you have never seen this film before then please make sure you get hold of the original un-butchered version. The best version available is still the ELITE millenium edition (this is NOT the 'special' edition) but just remastered with cleaned up picture and sound. This is sadly still unavailable in the UK but can be bought from the US and played on multi-region DVD players. NOTLD is still, in my opinion, one of the best horror films ever made but has been messed around with by people whom know nothing about good film-making and should be fed to a mob of starved zombies.
I'm giving this edition 1 star - should be a 5 of course but its been hacked to death.
WE'RE COMING TO GET YOU SCOTT VLADIMIR LICINA AND JOHN RUSSO!!!

Dont be fooled by its age or the fact that its in mouldy old black and white, Night of the Living Dead hasn't lost any of its punch since its controversial release in 1968. Be prepared for chilling scenes of suspence and brutal imagery of gory violence (cannibalism etc. etc.) coupled with superb acting from a cast of relative unknowns. Its grounbreaking violence and slick, stylised and now contempory direction/camera work, make the film a timeless masterpiece that changed the face of horror for ever. Never before had this level of violence been released upon the audience and has subsiquently stayed as the centre of much modern horror. Much imitated and at the mercy of two mediocre sequels, this is the zombie thriller to watch. The one. The only. The origonal horror, shock tale from a revolutionary master of the horror genre. Thank you George A. Romero.

Dont get me wrong before i start, i am a absolute romero nut and love zombie films, night of the living dead is my favourite movie of all time, i even run a website dedicated to it, now what i dont like about this item is the way it is advertised is very, VERY misleading... for a start its one disk only IT IS NOT TWO DISK as i found out when i received mine from amazon... secondly i resent the fact its advertised as a special edition, there are absolutly no special features apart from the documentry which is available on other DVD's, if you want this movie i advise the special edition version which comes in a metal tin, it has lots of features and is well worth the price. this one, STINKS.

Don't expect quality... The image is terrible and the sound is just about OK. But at least it's the original scenes with the original musical score. This therefore remains my favourite version in Region 2 DVD.
The film is of course an absolute masterpiece which deserves 6 stars minimum (Amazon will have to create a special category for it when a decend DVD release will be out in the UK.)

Night of the Living Dead is a classic film by one of the truly great directors of the horror genre, and this blu-ray edition does it justice with a good transfer and extra feature length documentary that is an invaluable source of information about the film at the time, it's impact and of course about Romero himself.

A must own!
