GEORGE ROMERO AND ROY FRUMKES – TOGETHER AGAIN!
Seminal horror filmmaker Roy Frumkes (THE SUBSTITUTE, STREET TRASH)
created one of the more infamous documentaries when he worked directly
with his longtime friend George Romero on DOCUMENT OF THE DEAD. Now,
Roy’s celebration of all things DAWN gets re-edited, updated, and
remastered! THE DEFINITIVE DOCUMENT OF THE DEAD is and all-new version
of the classic ‘making of’ project based on 1978′s DAWN OF THE DEAD!
George A. Romero, director of the original NIGHT OF THE LIVING
DEAD, is one of the horror genre’s most celebrated directors. The
original 1979 version of DOCUMENT OF THE DEAD was an intimate look at
Romero’s creative process, with an outstanding collection of
interviews, effects demonstrations (courtesy of makeup artist Tom
Savini), and behind-the-scenes footage from Romero’s classic 1978
zombie film, DAWN OF THE DEAD.
This newly re-edited and remastered 2012 version of the
award-winning documentary contains all-new exclusive materials
including additional interviews with with Romero’s family and friends,
candid on-set footage from TWO EVIL EYES, LAND OF THE DEAD, DIARY OF
THE DEAD, SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD, and many more surprises! THE
