A commentary track is included in the Audio Setup menu, narrated by writer/director George A. Romero, make-up effects artist Tom Savini and assistant director Chris Romero. Twenty-five movie stills and promotional posters are included in the Poster & Advertising Gallery section, and an extremely detailed biography of director George A. Romero can be found in the section sporting his name. Also on this disc is a short preview of an upcoming Dawn Of The Dead Comic Book.
