    One of my all-time favorite documentaries.

    Not only is it an illuminating and entertaining chronicle of the making of one of the greatest and most iconic films of all time, it also examines it as social commentary and finds time for a very lucky elementary school class whose teacher shows them Night of the Living DeadΒ and teaches them zombie physics, and interviews some of the now-grown individuals who saw the film as children in its original release at those matinee screenings Roger Ebert so infamously decried.

    Pure comfort food on multiple levels. All hail George Romero!

    I love...

    1. ...the fact that it pays significant tribute to both 1981's landmark EVIL DEAD and 1987's absurdly creative EVIL DEAD II, in a number of interesting ways while also containing many great surprises of its own.…

    It's been a Cronenberg family kind of day, what can I say?

    How can a movie simultaneously be one of the most viscerally disturbing monster movies ever AND one of the most heartbreaking, tragic love stories of the 1980s? It's a rarity to find a movie that hits so squarely on all intended marks (scares, suspense, gross-out moments, special effects, emotional intensity...), but David Cronenberg's still-stunning remake of THE FLY (oh yeah, it's also one of the greatest remakes of…
