i was already getting this but damn, the making of is 86mins? i thought it was gonna be the usual 20-35min the previous Shout stuff has had. very cool news. and i am very happy to see the Savini stuff as well. i remember seeing some of that raw footage and it proves his talents because even on cheap video tape, the gore still looked great and realistic and gross!!!

(edit after a brief bit of research) Eh, fuck it, you're right, I'm wrong.
Though I do recall reading a piece written a good 20, 25 years ago saying one of the reasons that Day didn't do well at the box office was that audiences were zombied out after ROTLD, which was a hit. And it looks like at least Roger Ebert's reviews from the time were spaced so that he reviewed Day two weeks after Return.
The release schedules of 28-year-old films hardly seems relevant now though, heh.

I wonder if this audio track corrects the previous Anchor Bay release, which dubbed out some of the profanity (when John says "right" instead of "shit," for example). Not sure how/why that happened (probably carelessness), but I did wonder if it had been corrected. (I realize how nitpicky this is, and well accept any appropriate taunting for it.)

Day is my favorite of Romero's zombie movies, I've always loved the close human element this one brought over anything else he's done, not to mention some of the best gore ever done, especially for the time period, hell even today most FX gore doesnt come close to the quality put into this, Savini is a Legend

Weakest of the series
This was not nearly as good as Night or Dawn. It went more for the gore.

This has always been my absolute favorite zombie movie. It was the first I saw, and I had suuuuch nightmares. I'll have to upgrade. Scream Factory is my wallet's worst nightmare.

LOL, "Bub" was played by Sherman Howard, credited in DAY (as he often was in his early years) as "Howard Sherman," not "Gary" Sherman.

Finally got to watch this one. The transfer was very nice indeed, the audio however was terrible. The dialog was constantly hissing and at times the dialog would drift to the left speaker and stay there. And the level was uneven, it started nice and loud, then it got too quiet when they go underground. Someone needs to make a fan release using audio from the old release. Though I don't recall how much better it was, if at all.
Check that, I just remembered I still have the old release lol. On a quick comparison at least the 5.1 track centers dialog and its not hissy.
