One of the first and best behind-the-scenes examinations of
a horror classic returns as THE DEFINITIVE DOCUMENT OF THE DEAD hits DVD in
November. We’ve got the scoop on the details and a first look at the art, and
also for a French thriller called ASYLUM.
Synapse Films gave Fango the
word that it will release DEFINITIVE DOCUMENT and ASYLUM November 13. THE
DEFINITIVE DOCUMENT OF THE DEAD is a re-edited, remastered edition of Roy
Frumkes’ portrait of George A. Romero, framed as a behind-the-scenes look at
his 1979 classic DAWN OF THE DEAD. This version contains a wealth of new,
exclusive material, including additional interviews with Romero’s family and
friends, candid on-set footage from TWO EVIL EYES, LAND OF THE DEAD, DIARY OF
THE DEAD and SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD and other surprises, plus a fresh audio
commentary by Frumkes. ASYLUM, a 2008 French production a.k.a. I WANT TO BE A
GANGSTER and directed by Olivier Chateau, is a psychological
confinement/survival saga about a low-level crook (Julien Courbey) who aspires to rise through the criminal ranks but makes a
deadly mistake and winds up chained to a tree, left to die with no food or
water, and confronts predators both human and animal. Presented in 1.78:1
widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1 sound, the movie will be accompanied by a
making-of featurette, the short film HOMER and the original promotional
trailer. Retail price for each disc is $19.95.
