This documentary, "Night of the Living Dead: 25th Anniversary Edition (1993)", finds a fondness in the hearts of movie lovers who are grownup with George A. Romero's zombie film NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968). There are great interviews with the producers couple Marilyn Eastman en Karl Hardman, who played a couple in that classic horror movie together with their daughter, Kyra Schon (the first zombie child). Marilyn and Karl show what 1930s records they used to gather the soundtrack for the film for, including the sound effects. There was no money to contract a composer and an orchestra to write and play new music. Also there's a round-table conversation between Romero, co-writer John Russo, Karl Hardman again and Russell Streiner (Johnny, the first victim in the movie). Next to this there are small interviews with Sam Raini (EVIL DEAD, SPIDER-MAN), Wes Craven (NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET) and Tobe Hooper (TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, POLTERGEIST). A treasure for any classic horror movies lover!
