Non-commercial release, misunderstood but magazines loved it.
The "Survivors Cut" aka Benefit for the Living Dead was favorably reviewed by Cinescape, Dread Central, Creature Corner, MoviesOnline and websites globally.

I worked with the remix-artist Lachiusa, and his intent was only to demonstrate his editing abilities. Tom Savini enjoyed the remix.

The 72 minute Survivor's Cut was never meant to challenge the Romero work, rather it augments the original by providing a contemporary re-imagination.

It was offered for free by Prelinger's Archive website and over 3,000 copies were downloaded in a few weeks. The film was removed (May 2005) because the Archive audience asked for a higher resolution version and something other than a Real Media file. Lachiusa asked Romero's agent and then later writer John Russo to pick up the task of re-mastering and distribution, but this never happened.

To this date: Lachiusa's "Neo-Cine" remastering features more saturated colors and highlights digital-dolly-moves and new camera angles, but this version has never been distributed.
