The released dates threw me off, I thought the SE was a brand new edition.

I ordered the ME...

I also remember the movie looking very '80s so it has to be RotLD.
It might be Return of the Living Dead part 2.

Anyways, is Communion a good film? I remember seeing it but forgot what it's like.

I used to think, before I got my degree in horror film education, that the Return of the Living Dead Films were linked to Romeros films, I guess just because of the Living Dead in the title. Anyway, they're more humor-laced homages to Romero's films than anything else, but certainly worth a look. Return of the Living Dead part one is the one most horror enthusiasts consider a classic. Part 2 is just goofy, but ranks pretty high on the campiness meter. Part 3 almost has nothing to do with the other 2 and is mainly about a hot zombie chick and her confused boyfriend who tries to keep her from killing everyone.

The 1990 Night of the Living Dead remake, directed by legendary special effects make-up artist/part-time actor Tom Savini, ranks up there along with Romero's films. It's basically a straight forward remake with more trademark Savini gore. Savini did the effects and make-up for the original NOTLD when he was just a kid in high school and later did the effects for Dawn of the Dead after coming back from Vietnam.


Chances are you're talking about Return of the Living Dead part 1 or 2 though.

stonecountry, are you sure about Tom working on NOTLD? I always thought his first dead movie was Dawn.
As far as ROTLD/Romero films connection, apparently ROTLD was based on a book by John A Russo, who helped write NOTLD. He then wanted to go a different route for a sequel then Romero, so in the end Russo got to do Living Dead movies, whereas Romero just did Dead so they could keep separate continuity.

Savini was in Vietnam as a camera man, so wasn't able to work on NOTLD.

Also, from what I understand the Russo/Romero "split" after NOTLD was less than amicable, and came down to $$$ and film rights (which is why NOTLD is in the public domain...)

Joltman,

Actually, he didn't do much on the original NOTLD. He was originally scheduled to be the main make-up artist, as he and Romero have been friends for many years, but he got drafted to go to Vietnam just before filming began. Thus, he isn't credited on the film, but he did help conceptually and got a few ideas in there.

I think Romero blames Russo somewhat for them losing the copyright on NOTLD. The film was originally titled "Night of the Flesh Eaters" and was coprighted as such. However, the distributors didn't like that name for promoting it to drive-in theaters aimed at younger audiences, so they changed it to "Night of the Living Dead". However, a new copyright was never issued under the new title before releasing the film, thus making it almost instantly in the public domain, having been commercially released widespread with no binding copyright. The original copyrights were in Russo's name only too, so George probably blames him somewhat for that. They made almost nothing on NOTLD. That's one of the main reasons Romero helped with Savini's remake in 1990 and Russo re-issued the DREADFUL 30th anniversary edition with ridiculous new footage. They both made more profit from those ventures than the original NOTLD. Of course, they both have equal claim to the screenplay, as they co-wrote it.

Well, Bill Lustig has his hand in the 30th Anniv NOTLD too. there's enough blame to go around.

John Russo owns (owned) the rights to the phrase "LIVING DEAD". That's why "RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD" had that title... because Russo was involved in it. And why Dawn and Day didn't have LIVING DEAD in the title (because Russo wasn't involved, and no one was willing to pay for using it)

To make it even more of a sad affair, Richard Rubenstein owns the rights to "DAWN OF THE DEAD" and "DAY OF THE DEAD".

I'm not even sure of George Romero owns the rights to his own name at this point.

I really would like to pick up Communion SE but the description states that it's full screen. I see a bunch of you guys are still ordering this title... is the description a typo or you just don't care that it's fool screen?

As far as I can tell, it's the only edition out. But I could be wrong.

I also ordered it and assumed it was a typo because all the reviews I could find said it was widescreen 2.35:1. I just went to elite's page and they list the SE as fullscreen. IMDB says the film's OAR is 2.35:1.

http://www.elitedisc.com/xcart/custo...cat=249&page=4

I thought Elite was very pro OAR?

DVD Empire lists the same DVD with the same UPC as 2.35:1 widescreen.
http://www.dvdempire.com/Exec/v4_item.asp?item_id=9121

I was about to call DDD and ask them to remove Communion from my order. I don't want to waste my money on a non OAR copy.

It IS in fact Widescreen. DDD often lists the incorrect information in terms of specifications and extras. I've had the Communion DVD for a while, and it's a great DVD with a few good extras, including a pretty interesting commentary. This is possibly my favorite realistic Alien movie. Fire in the Sky is up there too. I don't consider the Ridley Scott and James Cameron Alien flicks to be very realistic obviously.

If you ever have a question about a DVD, Amazon.com usually lists the proper information. www.dvdcompare.net is a good place to go too to compare multiple region versions.
