Some things that I would have liked to have seen would be more prop pictures, and memorabilia whether fan made or professional. I know there is a lot of stuff out there; this would have been a great place to showcase it.
In addition I would have liked them to take this opportunity to explain exactly what went wrong with the DVD's that have come out of the original ROTLD. Why has the soundtrack been butchered; even to the point where key fan favorite phrases were re-dubbed ("Send more cops" / "paramedics")? Why can't a real fan get a hold of an unadulterated copy of this classic movie? Maybe the researchers don't know, but I'm sure they're talented enough and should have been able to track down these answers.
All in all a must buy for any fan of the movie, do not hesitate to add it to your library.
This book has nearly everything you could ask for. Production art, rare photos, storyboards, interviews with directors, actors, makeup artists, writers and other people involved in the making of these films.
Lots of behind the scenes trivia I am sure will interest fans of the films. From the fun fact that the first film was originally meant to be a serious follow-up to Night of the living dead to the depressing stuff about Tom Fox trying to reason with the studio executives in charge of the last film while slowly fading away from cancer.
It is to bad there is no interviews about Michael Kenworthy from part 2 but I can't really complain to much about that as from what I understand the authors tried their best to find him. Aside from that minor aspect the book is perfect.
Even if you only like the first film there should be enough about it here to make this worth buying.
Book was priced great!! So great that I was worried that there may be something wrong with it. I sent a message to the seller and got a reply same day. We corresponded a few times before the book arrived. WOW the book was in GREAT condition!! Very happy!!!
Would recommend this seller to all!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU !!!
