Top Customer Reviews
There is also a segment on Two Evil Eyes which reunites Romero and Frumkes. It focuses on a special effects segment detailing on what can go wrong in movie making usually does. Quite effective.
The DVD supplements feature a fascinating audio commentary with director Frumkes, cinematographer Reeves Lehmann, and narrator Nicole Potter, with lots of anecdotes, including a very sad one detailing the lost alternate ending of the original cut of Dawn Of The Dead. There are also seven minutes of deleted footage from the original documentary, plus a twenty minute interview segment from Two Evil Eyes with Adrienne Barbeau, George Romero, and Tom Savini.
Required viewing for future filmakers and, of course, fans of Dawn Of The Dead, George Romero, and Roy Frumkes.
A job well done.
