1990 zombie action film The Dead Next Door was shot over a period of four years in Akron, Ohio. In addition to being surprsingly excellent for such a small budget independent movie, the film acts a time capsule for several area bands from that era, whose music complements writer/director/producer/composer JR Bookwalter's minimal synth score.
We spoke with Bookwalter about The Dead Next Door, which was recently released as an Ultimate Edition Blu-ray, DVD, and soundtrack combo via Tempe Video. The interview was recorded over Skype, so you can hear some odd background noises, including the microwave in the kitchen
