At long last, we're finally going to get George A. Romero's long-lost film The Amusement Park, and today we have a trailer to tease us.

This morning Shudder announced the streamer will finally be releasing the uncovered 1973 Romero film on June 8. The recently discoverd feature has been restored and comes three years after a print of the film was finally found.

Shudder's official synopsis for The Amusement Park reads as follows:

An elderly gentleman goes for what he assumes will be an ordinary day at the amusement park, only to find himself in the middle of a hellish nightmare instead. Shot by George A. Romero between Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead, The Amusement Park is a bleak, haunting allegory where the attractions and distractions of an amusement park stand in for the many abuses that the elderly face in society. 4K digital restoration commissioned by the George A. Romero Foundation and carried out by IndieCollect.

Down below, you can get an idea what to expect with the newly shared trailer.

Believe it or not, Romero fans may also get another film from the late director His widow recently revealed his final zombie movie script Twilight of the Dead will be turned into a film with a new director bringing it to life.

Romero died from lung cancer at 77 in 2017.
