Audience Reviews for Document of the Dead

A great early look at filmmaking in general.

Tim Salmons

Super Reviewer

While this is certainly of interest to fans of George A. Romero and the horror genre, this documentary is actually quite a good explanation of the filmmaking process for any fan of film. If you want a good breakdown of how films are made, or if you are just a fan of Romero and zombie flicks, definitely worth a look.

Ken Scheck

Fairly good documentary for it's age. It mostly focuses on Dawn of the Dead but also talk some about Romero's other films like Martin and Blood Monkey. There's a lot of behind the scenes footage from the 70's mixed with new interviews from the 80's, making it a bit hard to tell difference in the interviews. There is plenty to be learned from this documentary though, making it complementary for Romero zombie fans.
