This is the definitive word on Day of the Dead, a film which has gone somewhat under the radar by comparison to it's two predecessors (Night of the Living Dead, and Dawn of the Dead), which routinely get the lion's share of the attention. Much has been written about Night and Dawn, but not so much about Day - until now. The author writes with an involving sense of passion, and his research has been exhaustive - every aspect of the film is covered and there's a huge wealth of revealing, candid, and warm interviews with innumerable members of the cast and crew. The book is also filled with fantastic behind the scenes photos. Highly recommended for fans of Romero, of the film itself, and of 80s horror cinema in general. A thoroughly enjoyable must-read!

the book, whichi had ordered arrived today just been looking through it, didn't know that one of the people who works in the walking dead was working on set of this. for fans od George romero, this is a good book to read covers all the issues that they had, the fun that they had and ultimatley, what the box office results were, now it is considered a classic just like the original film, but after it was made not so, the fans turned this into a classic over time.
consider the original and classic night of living dead, upon it's release no copyright was seen on it, despite george romero putting it on hisfinished film, thus upon release, went right into public domain, and severval versions apperared, both good and not so. there is a remake of this which is, as a remake not bad, the is book also covers set location, ans how they made all the effects and zombies, and zombie attack victims, it reads as a diary, an on set account of how they did the film, which is a fasinating read. reccomended for either Romero fans or ones who love a great zombie movie.
