    One thought on “Night of the Living Dead: Behind the Scenes of the Most Terrifying Zombie Movie Ever”

    1. I forgot to review this because it was so annoying I thought I was getting a book on the history of one of my favorite movies, instead I got an opinion piece from a left wing nut attaching his own agenda to a classic film He obviously did not discuss the movie with the writers and directorsexamplehe claims that the lead character, who was played by a black man is a symbol of white oppression and discusses how the film shows basically how blacks will oust whitey.had he talked to the writer or eve [...]

    2. This was really entertaining I ve loved NOTLD since I was a kid and I ve pretty much heard it all when it comes to history and cultural lore, but that doesn t mean hearing the narrative put together this way wasn t fun And I think for someone that hasn t gotten to hear this stuff yet, this would feel pretty informative Stylistically the only real complaint I have is that the author approaches the book in a sort of textbook style without personal reference for 99% of the volume and then a few tim [...]

    3. The story of the place of zombies in our culture cannot be told without a significant part of that story pointing to George A Romero, and the movie that staked its claim in the zombie phenomenon, Night of the Living Dead 1969 The story about how this movie came to be and on its impact in horror cinema and american culture, in general, is a very exciting story This is a great book that tells that story There is a lot of exposition on movies that preceded Night and a lot that came after.

    4. If you like NotLD and want to become a bit of a buff about it, this book s a great place to start It encompasses than the original film, going over all of the Dead movies plus some of the earlier attempts at zombie filmmaking.I really enjoyed hearing about the Making of experiences with the first film and actors And the text is amusing to read also.

    5. George A Romero s Night of the Living Dead is widely regarded as one of the greatest horror films ever But making the movie and trying to collect its profits turned out to be a real life nightmare for the filmmakers.This story is told in Night of the Living Dead Behind the Scenes of the Most Terrifying Zombie Movie Ever The book documents, quite thoroughly, the challenges cast and crew faced The farmhouse in which much of the film takes place lacked running water, and its remote location meant l [...]

    6. An excellent and detailed look at the Living Dead films supported by a variety of sources and new interviews Possibly mis named however, as it doesn t only cover the original Night of the Living Dead, but all of the Romero Living Dead films and a fair chunk of Romero s other work too The book is interspersed with other random bits such as descriptions of key Z movies through history, and some Top____ lists.The book closes with Russo s original script, although I can t decide if this is a good us [...]

    7. A nice look at how George Romero and his friends managed to create a massively influential film on a shoestring budget and with a cast and crew of mostly amateurs The book follows the career of Romero and fortunes of some of the principals involved in the movie, with interviews and guest sidebars by various filmmakers Kane writes informally, and the book reads a bit like a series of articles from a zine, but his enthusiasm is mostly tempered by a willingness to be critical of other works by Rome [...]

    8. the author isn t a great writer, but he s good enough as a once new York film critic, which is the history of not just night of the living dead, which in its making is an innately fantastic story of the making of an independent film, groundbreaking to me for just how they went about making it a positive version of the story of Manos the Hands of Fate , as well as a phenomenon, but the living dead in general It s a good book made very good by being inclusive of the films and figures of it s lega [...]

    9. Good book, despite being badly written Skip the first couple of chapters an endless plot description of very single zombie film that came before NOTLD, and then a scene by scene description of the movie If you re reading the book, you already know the film Despite being titled as a behind the scenes look at NOTLD, this is really a brief look at that, followed by the sequels, everything else directed by Romero, directed by other people involved in the film, as well as the various spin offs, spoof [...]

    10. The title is a bit of a misnomer, as the book really covers the career of George Romero and the various zombie films that have risen pun intended from his seminal movie It s written in a friendly, chatty style, and there s a lot of good information about Romero s various films Kane here writing under his real name, not his Phantom of the Movies pseudonym can t help but be opinionated about the plusses and minuses of the various films, but he has an obvious love of the material, and Romero especi [...]

    11. A great starter book for those Romero film fans and film history buffs The book includes the entire script for the original Night of the Living Dead so if you want the book to be over quickly, it s easily done by skipping this section There s a lot of additional film titles, things to watch, things to skip seeing, and lots of bibliographic information Warning this book by Joe Kane will make you want to watch all of the Living Dead series

    12. A fascinating book that I strongly recommend to anyone who is a fan of the film The development of the script an early draft is included was of particular interest The book recounts Duane Jones changes to the screenplay and the character of Ben which I think really elevated the film A great resource with lots of details A satisfying read.

    13. Only 2 major problems I found with the book 1 The author misspelled Barbra s name through out the entire book It s Barbra NOT Barbara 2 The author only credits John Russo as the screenwriter It was written by Russo and co written by George Romero based on a short story by Romero Besides those issues, I enjoyed it

    14. Kind of turns into a biography of George Romero after they talk up the making of NOTLD, which is fine If you have the 40th anniversary dvd and have seen the One More For the Fire , you might have heard a good portion of the NOTLD stories But all in all, it s informative and interesting, so you really can t go wrong with it.

    15. Less about Night Of The Living Dead as a neat monograph on Romero s career as a whole Nice overview of the zombie genre as a whole Only a few odd omissions about Night Of The Living Dead itself like what sent its budget from low five figures to mid six figures keep it from earning five stars.

    16. This is a book for fans of Horror and definitely i must have for Romero fans Lots of info on all his work and films of the genre he created The original script for Night of the Living Dead is included very cool reading what they had in mind and what you see in the movie, several differences.

    17. The behind the scenes stuff by itself would ve got 3 5 stars, but the real appeal is a complete early draft of the script.
