Off the top of my head (probably not 100% complete):

Night of the Living Dead 1990
Day of the Dead
Maniac
Martin (out-of-print)
Knightriders

You'll also want to check out:

Document of the Dead
Two Evil Eyes (interviews, tour of home)
Scream Greats Vol 1: Tom Savini (out-of-print, VHS + Laserdisc only)


EDIT: Forgot about The Prowler. Damn. There's probably others.

He has done one of the best commentarys ever , for the UK verison of Dawn of the Dead, him and his buddie in Toms bedroom! probibly the best commentary ever, its just hilarious and fact packed, worth getting thats for sure. I have listened to it more than any other.

Martin is getting re-released soon, so it may have the old commentary, and the MANIAC and KNIGHTRIDERS are good ones too.

Hello....

I have all of the following on DVD -- and as said above, they all have tom's commentaries:

1) Night of the Living Dead 1990
2) Day of the Dead
3) Maniac
4) Martin
5) Knightriders
6) Document of the Dead
7) Two Evil Eyes
8) The Prowler

10) Scream Greats Vol 1, although I only have it on vhs, is worth getting a hold of... it's great.

I am interested to see if there are any other movies with tom's commentary....i know the creepshow series doesn't.... and...i think that's it -- except for the UK commentary mentioned above...

Oh yea, I was taking to tom once and he had mentioned that there was a vhs of dawn of the dead with his commentary, but that it was a rare laserdisc release, that was simply transferred to VHS -- this may have something to do with the uk version mentioned above -- interesting...

See ya,

Matt

When the Dawn of The Dead reissue comes out next year it will probbaly have a Tom Savini commentary on it.

The R2 Dawn Of The Dead commentary is excellent. Plus it's the longest Dawn Of The Dead dvd that I have (I have 3 including the R2). I'm still going to get the new release next year so I'll be quadrouple (sp?) dipping on my favorite movie of all time.

The UK Dawn of the Dead commentary was specifically done for the cut UK dvd of the film, and will never apper anywhere else as it wouldnt make sense as they go into detail about the cuts, why, how, etc.. its a classic. so if you ever want it this is the only way, it was done about 3 years ago I think.
and the commentary on the new Dawn will be with Tom and lots of others, they start to get confusing with more than a few.

The Elite special edition laserdisc for the director's cut of Dawn of the Dead had a commentary track with George Romero, his wife Christine, and Savini. I think it likely that the upcoming AB SE DVD will have this track.
