The Gang's All Here!!!!
23 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this on the new Weinstein Version of NOTLD and I got to say this might be the best of any Making-of doc I have ever seen. Everyone who is still alive and had something to do with the film talks about their memories and how much of a joy it was to work on the film. The reason why I give this 9 out of 10 is because the doc is split into sections and is somewhat slow but it is still highly enjoyable. The doc is also in memory of Karl Hardman due to his passing this past During his interviews you can tell he is very weak. There is also a great tribute to Duane Jones as the Cast and Crew remember him fondly. This doc is essential for all Romero and or zombie fans!
