Between Night and Dawn

Between Night and Dawn

Summary

Reissue mavens Arrow Video do good work with this set, presenting high-quality prints of several of the recently departed George Romero's lesser known works on DVD and BluRay. The Crazies, in particular, embodies the artistic development that Romero undertook between the "early" (Night) and the "peak" (Dawn of the Dead) stages of his craft, and in many ways plays like a dry run for that later masterwork. The unexpectedly winning domestic drama Season of the Witch and long-thought-lost curiosity There's Always Vanilla round out the set along with a treasure trove of special features for the more dedicated to dig into. Here's hoping Arrow Video will follow this up with the domestic release of its currently-only-available-in-the-UK reissue of Martin, which represents, at least in the opinion of this librarian, Romero's finest hour.
