"In a world where movies are produced on budgets of hundreds of
millions of dollars, at a time when studios expect a huge return on
their investment, in an industry where the opening weekend can make
or break a film--one man refuses to live by society's (or the movie
industry's) rules. One man is willing to put it all on the line and
do something different. Something daring. Something... free.
"That man is Mike Schneider.
"That film is Night Of The Living Dead: Reanimated.
"As a horror and zombie film buff, I'm familiar with George
Romero's classic 1968 film, Night Of The Living Dead. And also
aware of the mistake made by Romero and his colleagues when they
released the film without a copyright notice, accidentally making
their hard work into a public domain property."
