UK Synth monsters, Ogre and Dallas Campbell have composed a new score for the late George Romero's zombie classic Night of the Living Dead.

You can listen to the entire rescore on Bandcamp (or below), but the best part is that we can all tune into Lakeshore Records' YouTube channel OCTOBER 28 to watch the original film synched with OGRE & Dallas Campbell's new score.


Robin Ogden (aka OGRE) is a musician and composer based in The UK who has provided music for film, games, and more. Dallas Campbell (Dallas Campbell, Magic Happened) is a West Virginia based producer on the border with zombie capital Pittsburgh who boasts a massive collection of analog synthesizers.

Despite living 3594 miles apart, and having never met in person, they collaborate online by the wondrous power of Facebook chat. Night Of The Living Dead is the third installment of their transatlantic collaborations to see the light of day.


About Night Of The Living Dead:

A disparate group of individuals takes refuge in an abandoned house when corpses begin to leave the graveyard in search of fresh human bodies to devour. The pragmatic Ben (Duane Jones) does his best to control the situation, but when the reanimated bodies surround the house, the other survivors begin to panic. As any semblance of order within the group begins to dissipate, the zombies start to find ways inside -- and one by one, the living humans become the prey of the deceased ones.

Night of the Living Dead is directed by George A. Romero. Criticized at the time for its explicit gore, the film has since garnered critical acclaim for its sharp social commentary and for launching the popular genre of zombie horror. It has been selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry as a film deemed "Culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant."

Yeah it's public domain. Lakeshore's just going to do the work of synching it to the score for everyone on Oct. 28. Certainly you could go ahead and do it whenever instead.
