The making of ‘Day of the Dead’

George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead is probably his most underrated of his zombie films. For me I’ve always loved the film for not just the fact  it’s the goriest thing you’ll ever see but because it has a weight no other zombie film since Dawn of the Dead, and to be blunt, no other zombie film since comes close to it.

It is hard to see how a divided, angry, emotionally drained, group of people grouped into their own echo chambers against a single-minded menace is relevant today, but somehow Day of the Dead has more to say as the years go on. This making of documentary dates from 2013 and is fantastic. It also serves as a reminder of Romero’s talent and I only wish we’d had more from the man.

Anyhow, chow down and enjoy…
