In case you haven’t made the leap to high definition and availed yourself of Arrow Video’s excellent UK Blu-ray releases of George A. Romero’s flesh-eating classics Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead, fear not as this week sees Dawn following hot on the heels of last week’s Day in an amazing four-disc DVD edition.
Details on the Dawn release:
From Arrow Video comes the ultimate four-disc DVD edition of George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead featuring three different cuts of the feature presentation plus a whole host of specially produced extras previously only available on Arrow Video’s Blu-ray release of the film.
A National Emergency grips the US as the zombie population grows at an inexplicable and alarming rate. Two Philadelphia Police S.W.A.T. officers, a helicopter pilot and his TV reporter girlfriend escape the city and take refuge in an abandoned, suburban shopping mall after securing it following a series of brutal confrontations with the undead. Their survival is threatened when a band of looters leave a door open allowing the zombies access to the mall once more.
The first sequel to George A. Romero’s seminal 1968 zombie classic Night of the Living Dead, the equally powerful and apocalyptic Dawn of the Dead was hailed by respected film critic Roger Ebert as “one of the best horror films ever made.”
The wealth of special features include: George A. Romero approved theatrical cut of feature presentation; audio commentary by George A. Romero, Tom Savini and Chris Romero; audio commentary by Richard P. Rubinstein; Document of the Dead documentary plus The Lost Interview and deleted scenes; Fan of the Dead; Director’s Cut of feature presentation; The Dead Will Walk documentary; Dario Argento cut of feature presentation; US and German trailers; TV and radio spots; reviews; Giallo trailers; Scream Greats documentary on Tom Savini; four sleeve art options; double-sided fold-out poster; and a collector’s booklet entitled “For Every Night There Is A Dawn”.
Day of the Dead is currently available in a two-disc set loaded with the same special features as the Blu-ray release, which we reviewed here.
