The World's End The Making of 'Day of the Dead': Insightful and essential for fans
26 November 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

This third documentary on the works of George Romero really hit me in the feels and further saddened me about his passing. The man was a genius and we simply didn't get enough of his work.

This focuses entirely on 1985 classic Day Of The Dead and provides fantastic interviews with all the surviving cast and crew.

The documentary provides backstage footage, production stories and pulls the veil back on how some of the horrific gory special effects were pulled off which I believe were well ahead of their day.

It addresses the poor reception and the movies cult status.

I really enjoyed it and though it does seem to drag it provides a lot of highly interesting content that any fan of Day Of The Dead will enjoy.

The Good:

Highly insightful

The Bad:

Spotty in places

Things I Learnt From This Documentary:

Gary Howard Klar has never read the bible

Smoking during an interview makes you look like a disrespectful tool

Bub on a girls butt cheek sounds like the least sexy tattoo ever
