George A. Romero,
Richard P. Rubinstein,
Following an ever-growing epidemic of zombies that have risen from the dead, two Philadelphia S.W.A.T. team members, a traffic reporter, and his television executive girlfriend seek refuge in a secluded shopping mall.
A medieval reenactment troupe find it increasingly difficult to keep their family-like group together, with pressure from local law enforcement, interest from entertainment agents and a growing sense of delusion from their leader.
For fans of George A. Romero, it's always wonderful to see him tell stories of his movies, how they were made and what he meant by it. It's even more amazing to see the main cast of his magnum opus tell stories of the making of the movie. This gives deep insight into one of the classic zombie flicks.
And let's be real - Day of the Dead is by far the best of the trilogy; cinematography, makeup, special effects, story, acting, music, the props and locations, it all makes for a masterpiece. Seeing the cast and crew tell about it all is so immersive and fascinating. This is a must-see for Romero and zombie fans as well as cinephiles in general.
