zombie movie post of the day
Great googly moogly! My failure to obtain my favorite zombie movie of all time on DVD so far (although I do have it on videotape; I agree with Nathan Shumate that there's something about VHS that resonates with the film's grubby quality) has obviously been fate, preparing me for this moment: A two-disc special edition from Anchor Bay! w00t!!!
At long last for George Romero fans, Anchor Bay Entertainment will release the highly anticipated two-disc collector's edition of the capper in Romero's Dead trilogy, Day of the Dead. Loaded with extras, goodies include a new 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer, Dolby Digital Surround EX and DTS ES 6.1 soundtracks, an two audio commentaries, with George Romero, Tom Savini, Lori Cardille and production designer Cletus Anderson, and a second commentary with filmmaker Roger Avary. Disc two includes a brand-new documentary featuring interviews with Romeo, Cardille, Savini, Anderson and more, never-before-seen b FX footage from Savini, additional promo footage, an audio interview with actor Richard Liberty, four still galleries, the original screenplay, production notes and trailers. Retail is $29.98.
Props to Musashi for the heads-up!
