Recently discovered and restored 46 years after its completion by the George A. Romero Foundation and produced by Suzanne Romero, The Amusement Park was restored in 4k by IndieCollect in New York and is an alluring snapshot of the filmmaker’s early artistic capacity and style, and would go on to inform his ensuing filmography. The film was originally commissioned by the Lutheran Society to raise awareness about ageism and elder abuse, however, Romero conceived of what was perhaps his wildest, most imaginative movie, an allegory about the nightmarish realities of growing older. The film stars Martin‘s Lincoln Maazel as an elderly man who finds himself disoriented and increasingly isolated as the pains, tragedies, and humiliations of aging in America manifested through roller coasters and chaotic crowds.

“We couldn’t be more excited to team up with the George A. Romero Foundation to bring this horrifying lost film to audiences,” Yellow Veil Pictures co-founder Justin Timms said in a statement. “George’s work here, as always, is an unnerving criticism of American society, this time embodied through a relentless amusement park”

“Though not in the horror genre it is George’s most terrifying film,” Suzanne Romero, widow to the Night of the Living Dead director, said in a statement. “It has Romero’s unique footprint all over it!”
