The only movie horror legend George A. Romero did for hire was thought to be lost for decades. Commissioned by the Lutheran Society for an educational film about ageism, he turned in a disturbing trip into hell for one elderly man. Luckily, Romero's foundation discovered a print, and a huge restoration effort took place under the supervision of his widow.
Shudder acquired the rights earlier this year, and it's the perfect home for a curiosity like this. A few screenings at film festivals and one-off showings have earned the film rave reviews, including one which called it "one of the most upsetting films of the '70s." The Amusement Park will be one of a dozen movies Shudder will premiere beginning June 3. They've dubbed the series "Summer of Chills."
The Amusement Park streams exclusively on Shudder beginning June 8.
