Movie Preview: A “lost” George A. Romero film — “The Amusement Park” — earns a belated release

I interviewed Romero once or twice, interviews that always turned toward why he wasn’t able to get his films financed.

As indie and DIY as the “Night of the Living Dead” icon was, little he managed to get in front of audiences came easily.

“The Amusement Park” was one he got made but couldn’t turn into a release back in the early ’70s. Frankly, the trailer makes it look like distributors would have laughed him out of the room. Even drive-in theaters had some standards, after all.

Still, curious to see it.

Shudder has this, streaming it on June 8.
