Document of the Dead
Directed by Roy Frumkes
This must-see documentary, filmed on the set of DAWN OF THE DEAD, profiles the late, great George Romero as he brings his visionary zombie sequel to life. From pre-production to post and beyond, director Roy Frumkes (the writer of STREET TRASH) observes how the master of horror crafted one of the greatest horror movies of all time, with a little help from gore god Tom Savini and narrator Susan Tyrrell (FORBIDDEN ZONE). Frumkes also spends time on the original NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, MARTIN and more. For any fan of DAWN, Romero or horror filmmaking, DOCUMENT OF THE DEAD is essential viewing.
This documentary filmed on the set of DAWN OF THE DEAD profiles the great George Romero.
Cast: George A. Romero, Susan Tyrrell, Nicole Potter
Nice look at the Dead movies, though pretty thin on how the films were made, technical aspects and such. Still, it's nice to listen to Romero and others talk about their experiences on these films.
Seems all of George's Dead shoots were this fun.
Really entertaining look at one of the great horror directors.
Any behind the scenes looks at a Romero zombie film is a joy. Lovely as well to gain some insight into George and his family and not just George the filmmaker or George the horror icon. The pacing is a little strange and all the post-Dawn footage is a kind of a random hodgepodge of stuff but still well worth the journey for any Romero fan.
