Features
Conscience of the King with Ed Harris (1080p; 8:11). Considering his subsequent career, Harris seems to have remarkably fond memories of the film. He also talks about having performed in the musical Camelot prior to shooting this film. •Code of Honor with George Romero (1080p; 17:20) is a really interesting piece where Romero jokingly complains about having been pigeonholed as a "zombie" director, when he's really always wanted to branch out into other types of films. •Memories of Morgan with Tom Savini (1080p; 10:15). Savini has of course has gone on to his own special effects and directorial career, but he talks about having been selected by Romero when Savini was still a high student to screen test for a film that was never made. He actually had a background in fencing, so when Romero approached him with Knightriders, he was ready to go. •Behind the Scenes - The Stunts of Knightriders (1080i; 8:16) is an older piece sourced from pretty ragged looking video (replete with some minor tracking issues). •Trailer and TV Spots (1080p; 3:08) •Audio Commentary with Cast and Crew features George Romero, John Amplas, Tom Savini and Chris Stavrakis (Taso Stavrakis' brother). Romero typically provides great commentaries, and this is no exception. The group is very conversational, joking quite a bit about themselves ("How dare you bleed, I need you in the next shot!"), but they get into some of the nuts and bolts of the filming process, including a couple of very interesting anecdotes about various casting issues they encountered as well as information on some of the astounding stunt work. (Speaking of casting, horror fans should keep their eyes peeled for an amusing cameo.)
