Quotes

Tom Savini: Because of the parodies of zombies, there were beer commercials with zombies and Michael Jackson's "Thriller", you know, how can we make these things scary AGAIN? And my approach was we have to really remind people of what death was. I didn't want to ever use the word 'zombie' in the remake, these are dead things, death is the most important thing to try and make people scared of, AGAIN. So remakes are a difficult concept.

Good Featurette

The Dead Walk: Remaking a Classic (1999)

*** (out of 4)

Good featurette has interviews with Tom Savini, Patricia Tallman, John Russo, John Vulick and Russell Streiner as they discuss why they decided to remake NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. For the most part this twenty-five minute featurette is worth watching if you're a fan of the remake or of the original. It's interesting hear from Russo and Streiner as they discuss the copyright issues on the original and why this played a part in the remake. Savini talks about how he was originally set to work on the original but got called away to Vietnam. Tallman is on hand to discuss her character. There are some nice stories told here but it's too bad more of the cast members weren't interviewed but perhaps we'll get a more detailed documentary at some point.
