Document of the Dead (1985)
Pardon the usual complete lapse in my participation here, but on an overnight shoot, with time to kill, I stumbled across this documentary about Dawn Of The Dead on the subreddit /r/ObscureMedia, and I had NEVER heard of such a film, nor do I think I've ever seen it posted here (where it truly belongs).
Cat, you'll particularly enjoy the time-lapse stuff of Tom Savini doing his makeup thing around the 27 minute mark, but the whole thing is fascinating, and I think pretty much the whole Thon community will find it awesome as shit. For me, I particularly loved all the planning stuff and the logistics of the 2 month overnight mall shoot.
BTW, that subreddit ObscureMedia is a gold mine for random nuggets. I didn't realize the opening theme to Hulk Hogan's Rock & Wrestling had a pretty fucking cool theme song.
Hope this doesn't get buried over the weekend. Love you all, miss you all!
ps. Stan Jr & MrsStan are doing awesome. Here's his first haircut from last week:
