George A. Romero’s The Amusement Park coming to Shudder

The film by George A. Romero that has long to be considered lost and forgotten The Amusement Park, is finally going to be seeing the light of day.

After a print of “Amusement Park” was tracked down by Daniel Kraus, longtime collaborator with director Guillermo del Toro, in 2018, the 1973 film was restored in 4K by IndieCollect in New York City.

It sounds like a bleak film here are the details.

“Amusement Park” was commissioned by the Lutheran Society with the charter make a movie about shoddy treatment of the elderly in contemporary society. But Romero’s 52-minute production was never released because the nonprofit group found it to be too gruesome for mainstream audiences.

Shudder said that Amusement Park is George’s wildest and most imaginative film he’s made.
