Night of the Living Dead remains an immortal horror classic, but what came next diverges into very different paths. The original film hailed from director George Romero, with a script credited to Romero and John A. Russo. After Night, however, Romero and Russo went their separate ways, with Romero crafting his Dead trilogy, and Russo striking out to make his Return of the Living Dead series. This caused a rift, with Romero taking Russo to court. But at one point, a direct sequel to Night of the Living Dead was penned. Now, 50 years after the original’s release, that sequel – Night of the Living Dead Part II – might rise from the grave.
