While editing the movie, the creators discovered that 10% of the negative from the original footage, including 66 shots, had disappeared. When the filmmakers didn't get a response from the New York school of visual arts, director Roy Frumkes resorted to contacting a psychic therapist (Nancy Orlen Weber) to see if she could help. Though she suspected most of the missing film had been maliciously destroyed, she did pick up on the fact one small roll of film had been misplaced at the Technicolor laboratory. It was not until years later a can of film resurfaced, where it had been stored under the wrong title was the film finally edited and put on the market. See more »
This documentary is more deceased than one of Romero's zombies
Dull analysis of George Romero's films, a gentleman who apparently went to the Roger Corman School of Film Making. A lot of words were spoken about Mr. Romero and his unusual method of shooting pictures. All this excess verbal diarrhea and the fact remains that Romero is a low budget hack who can't get a big money backer. Since he can't get this backing from the legit studios he lays claim to being a maverick who does things his own way [read: makes 2 bit, turkey movies]. I heard a lot of jabbering about the lackluster film that comes out of mainstream "Hollywood" and a lot of hullabaloo on how much better, more innovative and honest, are the independent film makers. Sometimes this is true, but I have seen a large amount from both camps that are suitable only for ceiling drapery at a frat house party. Running low on funds does not make a producer of film less pretentious nor more valid than a larger outfit.
