George A. Romero completists will want to bookmark this one: a new book coming out later in the month called THE MAKING OF GEORGE A. ROMERO'S DAY OF THE DEAD goes in depth behind the scenes of, well, guess that's pretty obvious now. Featuring exclusive tales from the cast and crew, along with 250 never-before-published pictures from the gruesome underground set, as well as a forward from longtime Romero collaborator Greg Nicotero, this book seems like its got the guts - er, goods.

Released in 1985, Day of the Dead was the final film of George A. Romero's classic zombie trilogy, which forever changed the face of horror filmmaking. Set in an apocalyptic world where the living-dead epidemic has wiped out most of humanity, the movie quickly acquired cult status, and with one remake released in 2008 and another planned for 2014 its influence on popular culture can still be felt today. Now, for the first time, the full history of the making of the iconic original film is revealed. Drawing on a wealth of exclusive interviews with the cast and crew, author Lee Karr leaves no stone unturned in detailing the movie's preproduction, shoot, release, and legacy. Filled with behind-the-scenes gossip and previously unpublished stories from the set, as well as over 100 full-color photos, this book gives Day of the Dead the resurrection it deserves.

The book comes out in September 23rd; pre-order it right HERE.
