They kick things off, rather fittingly, with how they pulled off the challenging prologue sequence. Romero points out that most of the cast were stage actors and this allowed the filmmakers to shoot fast and a lot of pages in a day. Romero frequently mentions the creative freedom he had on this film. Most of the time is spent talking about the nuts and bolts of filmmaking on this informative track.

Pretty much the same as all of Romero's other commentaries; informal but informative. You can tell Romero loves his movies, and really enjoys working with his actors. But he also loves talking about the film making process, the special effects, and all the rest of the behind the scenes stuff.

Romero also seems to talk over and interrupt director of photography Adam Swica and Editor Michael Doherty at a few points in this commentary, but I attribute that more to lag time during teleconferencing.
