‘Night of the Animated Dead’ Trailer: Romero’s Zombie Classic Gets Animated

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has released an official trailer for Night of the Animated Dead. The upcoming film will revisit George A. Romero’s 1968 horror classic in a new, animated way.

Why does this look so bland and cheap? Warner Bros. could have at least tried to make this stylized and worth the watch. Instead, this is something that will be watched on MonsoonVision in ten years. Disappointing.

Night of the Animated Dead features the voice talents of Josh Duhamel (Jupiter’s Legacy, Transformers) as Harry Cooper, Dulé Hill (The West Wing, Psych) as Ben, Katharine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps) as Barbara, James Roday Rodriguez (A Million Little Things, Psych) as Tom, Katee Sackhoff (The Mandalorian, Battlestar Galactica) as Judy, Will Sasso (MadTV) as Sheriff McClelland, Jimmi Simpson (Westworld) as Johnny, and Nancy Travis (Last Man Standing) as Helen Cooper.

Plot Synopsis:

In Night of the Animated Dead, siblings Barbara and Johnny visit their father’s grave in a remote cemetery in Pennsylvania when they are suddenly set upon by zombies. Barbara flees and takes refuge in an abandoned farmhouse along with stranded motorist Ben and four local survivors found hiding in the cellar. Together, the group must fight to stay alive against the oncoming horde of zombies while also confronting their own fears and prejudices.

Night of the Animated Dead hits digital on September 21, 2021 and Blu-ray/DVD on October 5, 2021.
