Just Desserts: The Making Of Creepshow (2007/Synapse Blu-ray)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: B Film: B

Synapse brings us this incredibly well done documentary that takes you through the history of one of George A. Romero's most classic films, Creepshow, which is his infamous anthology horror collaboration with author Stephen King and Special Effects Master Tom Savini. For fans of this film, this feature length documentary is a great addition to the collection, it's almost a shame that the film itself wasn't paired with this to create a two disc set. Available in the UK for quite some time, Michael Felsher's Just Desserts: The Making Of Creepshow (2007) is just now finding its way to the United States.

Interviews from Director George A. Romero, Tom Savini, Ed Harris, Bingo O'Malley, Adrienne Barbeau, Tom Atkins and many others that were both behind and in front of the camera for the making of Creepshow. Featuring never-before-seen behind-the-scenes footage and great behind the scenes tidbits, I would highly suggest this to fans of the film. Also included is the rare Scream Greats, Volume 1, which was originally only available in limited run on VHS that is a great look at the work of Tom Savini and his rich history in the special effects industry in the '70s and '80s.

Presented in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and a great sounding DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) English lossless 2.0 Stereo track, the film looks and sounds great on Blu-ray.

It is also packed with Special Features including...

Audio Commentary with Director & Editor Michael Felsher

Audio Commentary featuring interviews with Actor John Amplas, Property Master Bruce Alan Miller, and Make-Up Effects Assistant Darryl Ferrucci

Creepshow Days - An interview with Director of Photography Director Michael Gornick

This is a solid documentary and a great disc packed with extras and is more great work by Synapse!
