Dawn of the Dead Blu-ray Review

DawnDeadSquareWith such films as 28 Days Later, Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland proving, appropriately, that there’s life in the zombie movie yet, the release of George A Romero’s classic Dawn of the Dead, a sequel of sorts to his seminal Night of the Living Dead, is certainly timely. This cleverly-packaged 3-disc edition, comprising a best-ever Blu-ray transfer and two DVDs, offers three cuts of the film: an HD version of the theatrical release, plus the director’s cut and Dario Argento’s, allowing multiple visions of a horrific alternative future.

EXTRAS: Fold-out poster, several packaging options, a 16-page booklet, the original Document of the Dead featurette, Anchor Bay’s superb feature-length retrospective The Dead Will Walk, commentaries, and other goodies from the Ultimate Edition.
