Crowdfunded Lost Romero Film Premieres

When you think of the late (died in 2017) horror film director George Romero, you don’t usually think of age discrimination.

Unless, of course, you’re a hard core conservative who thinks that zombies are just old people living off of socialism’s handouts.

But, a crowdfunded 4K restoration of the “lost” 1973 60 minute Romero movie “The Amusement Park” was originally financed by the Lutheran Services  to be a public service announcement about just that.

The film was shot for television but never released.

Here’s the synopsis: “Written by Wally Cook, the official synopsis is as follows: “An elderly gentlemen sets out for what he thinks will be a normal day at an amusement park and is soon embroiled in a waking nightmare the likes of which you’ve never seen.”

Sounds scary!
