Blu-ray.com lists Romero's Night of the Living Dead (1968) coming from Mill Creek.

Could this be a Let's-Cash-in-on-Romero's-Death Edition, which, due to the public domain status, is probably being released in spite of and in addition to the rumored forthcoming Criterion edition?

Its a terribly smart business decision from Mill Creek. About everyone knows of the still forthcoming Criterion edition now, but then it gets delayed, so they have the October / idiot market wrapped up nicely.

In case anyone wanted to know what kind of company Mill Creek was, here's their tribute to Romero when he died:

Oh good lord, you know you’ve hit the bottom of the barrel when you’re releasing Reb Brown movies.

With an exclusive Reb Brown commentary no less!

(I have never seen this movie but I am in the bag day 1 for all Italian postapocalyptic trash.)

You mean *now* they hit bottom? =D (This is the same company where their massive collection of sci-fi films includes one of the bafflingly worst films ever [R.O.T.O.R.])

I've not seen it but according to one of the commentators on one of the volumes of that 42nd Street Forever trailer compilation set this film apparently inspired the ultimate pithy negative review: "Up Yors!"

Is this the theatrical version, or the four part television mini-series version that has only been previously shown in Italy?

Seeing as Sony's UK DVD of Age of Consent now appears to be OOP, I wonder if it is forthcoming from Indicator? This seems to be the pattern, and other Mill Creek Sony releases have done the same (namely some of Sony's Hammer titles).
