New on DVD this week from Synapse Films is The Definitive Document of the Dead, a revamped and expanded version of this aply named definitive George Romero documentary.
"George A. Romero, director of the original Night Of The Living Dead, is one of the horror genres most celebrated filmmakers. Roy Frumkes' amazing 1978 documentary Document Of The Dead was an intimate look at Romero's creative process, with an outstanding collection of interviews, effects demonstrations (courtesy of make-up artist, Tom Savini) and behind-the-scenes footage from the classic horror film, Dawn Of The Dead.
This newly re-edited and re-mastered 2012 version of the award-winning documentary contains all-new exclusive material including additional interviews 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 Definitive Document Of The Dead is a loving portrait of a horror legend, and a must-see for any hardcore horror fan!"
In addition to all the new content added to the re-mastered and re-edited Document of the Dead, the DVD also features an all new commentary by writer/director/producer Roy Frumkes.
