Following an ever-growing epidemic of zombies that have risen from the dead, two Philadelphia S.W.A.T. team members, a traffic reporter, and his television executive girlfriend seek refuge in a secluded shopping mall.
Director Alan Smithee takes us on an irreverent (and unauthorized) romp through George A. Romero's classic Night of the Living Dead, the film that spawned the modern zombie craze and a thousand "of the living dead" remakes and rip-offs.
The storyline has been re-tooled to offer an experimental and contemporary revision of the 1968 original - much like a DJ remix. Slated to generate royalties for the Night of the Living ... See full summary »

Hi everyone, I'm Jan White and I starred in this little opus 35 years ago. Just want to comment on a few of your comments and add a little info that I know.
1. I am not sure if that was Marilyn Eastman because I don't think I ever knew full names of two of these gals playing cards.
2. I wish I too knew what happened to Joedda she was a lovely girl.
3. The Title of "Season of the Witch" was given to "Jacks Wife" aka "Hungary Wives" because of the featured Donovan song in the film. Not to compete with "Halloween." My film came out first with the name, I remember when I heard the subtitle of "Halloween" I couldn't believe they would use the same name as my film.
4. I am not a teckie, so don't know all the technical things your talking about. I did lend Anchor Bay the 16 mm print I have of the original release of "Hungary Wives" which was the first release of the film and it is 98 minutes long. I have never seen a longer version and to my knowledge it does not exist. This DVD release is longer I believe, because they took a few clips they found and patched them in.
