Dawn of the Dead
The world created by the legendary George A. Romero suffered an additional blow recently as yet another key component of the films that we love is no longer with us.
It's not often fans of film can go and walk the actual steps the characters in their favorite films did. Most of the time movies are shot on sets that disappear as soon as the filming is complete. So when a film (especially a classic like Dawn of the Dead) is shot in a place where fans can actual go, walk around and check things out without fear of a trespassing violation, you can bet they're going to show up. And that attraction to the Monroeville Mall, the filming site of George A. Romero's classic film, is the subject for the upcoming documentary, Cinemall.
In case you haven’t made the leap to high definition and availed yourself of Arrow Video’s excellent UK Blu-ray releases of George A. Romero’s flesh-eating classics Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead, fear not as this week sees Dawn following hot on the heels of last week’s Day in an amazing four-disc DVD edition.
Yes, you read the above headline correctly! Some brand new imagery from behind-the-scenes of the zombie epic to end all zombie epics, George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead, has surfaced; and what a glorious time we live in that we can dig on them right now!
One of the best mixes of home video releases we've seen so far this year hits store shelves on May 11th. What with a vampire movie geared toward adults that has actual adults starring in it, an end-of-the-world saga that pits the Archangel Michael against his winged brethren, and a couple of nature-run-amok entries, we have a little something for everyone.
We're just a few short days away from the debut of Breck Eisner's startling new vision of the Romero classic The Crazies, and to celebrate, we're giving away a DVD combo pack of some of the master's best films!
When you go to many various conventions, you start to see a lot of the same smiling faces over and over again. As a result you become a road family of sorts. Clayton Hill had a smile I'll never forget, and it's with a very heavy heart that we report he is no longer with us.
Sometimes I just have to ask myself "Why?" and then repeatedly bang my face against my computer desk. First off, relax, there is NOT a new remake coming, but apparently producer Richard Rubinstein has plans to give the original Romero classic Dawn of the Dead a three-dimensional face lift.
