    Got this, thought I'd pass it along...another high definition national screening prior to the next day's DVD launch. No one under 18 will be admitted.

    Not a whole lot. From what I remember from the script, there will be a scene in an apartment of the main tower that gets pretty bloody.

    EDIT
    Nice, it is playing in Austin. I think I will try to check it out if I have the time.

    Universal Studios Home Entertainment Announces:

    A New Video Featurette

    “BEHIND-THE-SCENES With
    George A. Romero’s Land of the Dead”

    A 12-Minute Special Makeup Effects Documentary
    to precede the feature film DVD release on October 18, 2005

    Universal City, California, October 11, 2005 – With his career coming full circle, Greg Nicotero was the special makeup effects designer on George A. Romero’s Land of the Dead. In this exclusive look into his studio, we see how a zombie makeup is created step-by-step, how a “zombie bite” is rigged and executed, and how the different zombie heads and props from the film were designed and realized. Nicotero has been working in motion pictures for 20 years, starting as a makeup assistant on Romero’s 1985 film, Day of the Dead. His studio, KNB EFX Group, has been responsible for dozens of projects since the late 1980s, including the films of Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, Wes Craven & Steven Spielberg. The KNB facility is located in Van Nuys, CA.
