The Making of George A. Romero's Day of the Dead

$40.95

Released in 1985, Day of the Dead was the final film of George A. Romero's classic zombie trilogy, which forever changed the face of horror filmmaking. Now, for the first time, the full history of the making of the iconic original film is revealed.

Set in an apocalyptic world where the living-dead epidemic has wiped out most of humanity, the movie quickly acquired cult status, and - with one remake released in 2008 and another planned for 2014 - its influence on popular culture can still be felt today.

Drawing on a wealth of exclusive interviews with the cast and crew, author Lee Karr leaves no stone unturned in detailing the movie's preproduction, shoot, release, and legacy. Filled with behind-the-scenes gossip and previously unpublished stories from the set, as well as over 100 full-color photos, this book gives Day of the Dead the resurrection it deserves.

Lee Karr is a devoted fan of the films of George A. Romero, in particular Day of the Dead, and has formed close friendships with many of the film's cast and crew. Over the years he has contributed photos and liner notes for DVD and Blu-ray releases in both the U.S. and Japan for Day of the Dead and Dawn of the Dead. He has written for magazines including HorrorHound and Famous Monsters of Film land, and previously interviewed George A. Romero for homepageofthedead.com. He lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This is his first book.

Greg Nicotero is executive producer of AMC's hit series, The Walking Dead. An acclaimed actor, director and special-effects creator, his wildly inventive work has earned him legendary status within the horror genre. Since landing his break as assistant to Tom Savini on Day of the Dead, he's gone on to enjoy a long and illustrious career. He is the co-founder of Hollywood's prestigious KNB EFX Group and the winner of four Emmy Awards. He lives in Los Angeles, California, with his wife and two children.
