Formerly Lost George A. Romero Film THE AMUSEMENT PARK Acquired by Yellow Veil Pictures

New York and Los Angeles-based arthouse company Yellow Veil Pictures have acquired the worldwide sales rights for "THE AMUSEMENT PARK", the formerly lost film from iconic filmmaker George A. Romero. The film was recently discovered and restored to 4k forty six years after its completion. "THE AMUSEMENT PARK" promises to be a snapshot of the filmmaker's early artistic capacity and style. Some have even called it Romero's most terrifying film. The film was originally commissioned by the Lutheran Society to raise awareness about ageism and elder abuse. Romero, however, conceived of what was perhaps his wildest, most imaginative movie, an allegory about the nightmarish realities of growing older. "THE AMUSEMENT PARK" stars 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.
Yellow Veil Pictures Co-Founder Justin Timms said “We couldn't be more excited to team up with the George A. Romero Foundation to bring this horrifying lost film to audiences. George's work here, as always, is an unnerving criticism of American society, this time embodied through a relentless amusement park”
Suzanne Romero said: “Though not in the horror genre it is George’s most terrifying film. It has Romero’s unique footprint all over it!”
