It's an ensemble commentary with Romero, Tom Savini and sundry other members of the crew, including Romero's wife Christine (who is an actress and played a role in this movie. According to the commentary, they got married on the last day of filming...a hilarious story accompanies that)

It's not a scene dissection kind of commentary but a more rambling dialog that gives you a lot of info and anecdotes about the various people that were associated with this movie, and there is even talk of some of Romero's other films including Dawn of the Dead, Martin, Creepshow and Bruiser.

It's quite entertaining in most part, although also saddening in that so many talented people that worked with Romero never got to do much other work, some of them turning to non-film professions later.

Agree with the above review. Great commentary, with a group of filmmakers exhibiting a genuine affection for all involved. Neat snapshot of the Pittsburgh filming industry during the '70s and early '80s. Savini is great, as usual, and the stories about Ed Harris and the colorful characters around the camera are very enjoyable. At over a 140 minute running time, there is an impressive lack of "dead air."
