Arrow Releases Early Romero

Romero collectionIf you are a die-hard fan of the work of George Romero, then you will need to add this new 6-disc box set from Arrow Video to your collection. No, most of the films in this set are not his famous horror flicks, but at least they give you a great insight to this iconic director.

The George Romero “Between Night and Dawn” box set contains the three films that he made between his famous zombie films, which are There’s Always Vanilla (1971), Season of the Witch (1972), and The Crazies (1973), which comes out in October.

Each film is presented from a brand new restoration, with Vanilla from a 2K restoration from an original negative, and Season and The Crazies from a 4K restoration from original film elements. One can only assume that these are going to look better than they ever have! All three films also contain brand new audio commentary from Travis Crawford, as well as other features, such as new interviews with Judith Ridley, Richard Ricci, Russ Streiner, and Gary Streiner.

There are also a few features in this set, such as an archive interview with Romero called Digging Up the Dead. There is also a segment when Romero and Guillermo Del Toro got to sit down and talk about Romero’s career. Add in an archive interview with actress Jan White from Season of the Witch, and a featurette revisiting the locations where The Crazies was filmed, in Evans City, PA. There is also a 2016 interview with actress Lynn Lowry from the Abertoir Film Festival.

The 6-disc set retails for $99.95 and can be pre-ordered now through Arrow Video or Amazon.
