Better than the last documentary
13 February 2014 | by (Co, Derry, Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

Before I began to watch this documentary, I thought to myself "Oh no. They're going to repeat the same information from the last documentary."

Surprisingly, they don't. They have new stories to tell us. Although, Romero, Cardille, Piloto, Sherman and Savani tell us the same info though. Which is way I'm giving this a 9.

Romero said that the original script was that the film was very epic and had big action scenes. But due to the film's budget, the action scenes were taken out. But those scenes were later used in Land of the Dead.

It's nice to see the rest of the cast and crew who weren't interviewed in the last doc. Anthony (for some strange reason, everyone calls him "Tim") talks about how he stayed in character throughout the whole of the shoot, Gary Klar talks about how he auditioned for Rhodes, but landed the role of Steele because Romero liked the fact that he was the big guy who had to be beside Piloto's little guy.

Piloto talks about how he was worried that he was going over the top. I think him going over the top made him scary.

John Harrison said that when the crew were taking the alligator out of the truck for the Florida scene, they accidentally dropped it and hurt it's snout. If you watch the film, the alligator's snout is bleeding.

They talk about filming in the mines and how there were bats in there.

The Make up effects team talk about how they made each effect and how one of the men sent Tom Savani to the hospital after spraying him the face with a fire extinguisher.

Yes, Piloto talks about what happens in his death scene. I've heard it before.

Then they talk about how the movie bombed and the bad reviews it got. The film also failed because it came out the same time as Return of the Living Dead, which added to the confusion. Lori Cardille said that her family went to see "Return" and told that they couldn't find her in the film.

Also, people wanted it to be like "Dawn" again and they got something else which disappointed them.

Polito said he was upset when he saw Siskel and Ebert review the film and saying "Here's an example of the horrible acting" and showing a clip of him shouting.

But then they talk about how this film developed a huge cult following on video. They talk about meeting fans and how much they loved this film.

In the ending credits, the cast recite their lines.

A hugely enjoyable doc for "Day" fans. Although they could've shorten the title. There's two "Of the"'s.
