Did you know that NotLD was initially scripted as a horror comedy? That Karl Hardman and Marilyn Eastman, who played Harry and Helen Cooper, were also the film's makeup artists? (Eastman, in fact, portrayed the scarred female ghoul who picks an insect off a tree and eats it.) That the brother of NFL great Johnny Unitas served as the film's lighting supervisor? The Complete Night of the Living Dead Filmbook by John Russo (who co-wrote the final script with director George Romero) is loaded with such interesting factoids, but ultimately it's far more than a compendium of trivia. In recounting the history of NotLD and how its creators overcame the limitations of a low budget to produce the bleak, terrifying film which ushered in the era of modern horror, Russo fascinates and inspires...which makes this book a must-read. It's exceptionally well illustrated, too. ( )
