Product Details

Product Description


George Romero's 1978 follow-up to his classic Night of the Living Dead is quite terrifying and gory (those zombies do like the taste of living flesh). But in its own way, it is just as comically satiric as the first film in its take on contemporary values. This time, we follow the fortunes of four people who lock themselves inside a shopping mall to get away from the marauding dead and who then immerse themselves in unabashed consumerism, taking what they want from an array of clothing and jewellery shops, making gourmet meals, etc. It is Romero's take on Louis XVI in the modern world: keep the starving masses at bay and crank up the insulated indulgence. Still, this is a horror film when all is said and done and even some of Romero's best visual jokes (a Hare Krishna turned blue-skinned zombie) can make you sweat. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

In 1968, director George A. Romero brought us "Night of the Living Dead." It became the definitive horror film of its time. Eleven years later, he would unleash the most shocking motion picture experience for all times. As modern society is consumed by zombie carnage, four desperate survivors barricade themselves inside a shopping mall to battle the flesh-eating hordes of the undead. This is the ferocious horror classic, featuring landmark gore effects by Tom Savini, that remains one of the most important - and most controversial - horror films in history. When there's no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the earth: The original "Dawn of the Dead" is back!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST ZOMBIE MOVIE EVER!!! AT LAST!!! July 18 2004
A four disc edition? Who can ask for more? Obviously we saw it coming... the remake was there... the Divimax edition early this year... everybody was saying a big multi-disc edition was coming... and here it is!
To start analyzing this film we must take a look at NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. This film was a landmark as it introduced the zombies as we know today. Now, DAWN OF THE DEAD set a new landmark. In it, the zombies were a mature (sub)genre in modern cinema.
What makes this film so important? Everything! First it is the brilliant screenplay. The story... you already know: as the zombie population increases more and more, four people barricate themselves inside a big shopping mall, where they endulge themselves with all consumering desires they can think of.
Sounds simple? It is, but there is more than meets the eye: as the zombies try to get in (you'll have to wonder why) the four heroes inside discover their paradise makes them more empty than they would have thought it would... and slowly, life start making no sense.
DAWN OF THE DEAD is the kind of film that has been changing as the decades pass. Its violence seems to have softened if we think of all the action and horror films who came in the decades that followed (just like it happened with other horror landmarks like THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, FRIDAY THE 13TH, HALLOWEEN and NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD). Its makeup is not comparable to the vast majority of horror films that came after (who had bigger makeup budgets)... but on the other hand, elements like tension, drama, character development and social critique have all grown more powerful then in all of the films that followed.
In other words, audiences who see this film today, many times discover the fact that its weight is changing fields...

5.0 out of 5 stars Must buy for Horror Fans! March 8 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Whether, you are a teen, young adult, or an adult, you can appreciate this classic horror film, directed by George Romero, the man who created Night of The Living Dead. It still remains as one of the all time great films of horror history. If you enjoy this title, try getting Assault of District 13, directed by John Carpenter.

I won't talk about the movie itself as I won't be able to add anything worthwhile. There's a ton of reviews you can look at that'll hit the nail on the head. All I'll say is that it's arguably the best zombie movie ever made. I'm just going to cover the contents of the package.

Disc 1 - U.S. release. Restoration looks great, and the commentary with Romero and Savini is really interesting. They, along with Romero's then-wife Chris, sound like old friends and all the conversation flows very naturally. The U.S. version uses some more humorous clips and the manner in which the movie is cut gives a heavier emphasis on Western consumerism. The only gripe I have with this version is that Romero uses a lot of stock music. This type of music was great in Night of the Living Dead, but here it does NOT blend well with Goblin's score, which I prefer.

Disc 2 - Extended release. Good for fans, but I'd say first timers should stick with the original. It's cool to see clips that haven't been previously available, especially to see a younger Joe Pilato. Overall, the version runs too long to be as fun and enjoyable as the original cut, but is still cool for fans of the film.

Disc 3 - European release. I actually have a hard time deciding which cut I like better between this and the U.S. version. I'd still say U.S. because of some key scenes that I think benefit the movie (who doesn't love the motorcycle gang pie scene?), but I LOVE the music in this version. I think that Goblin has created one of the most memorable scores in horror cinema, and it's totally indicative of the 1970's. This is also the only version that has the cast commentary, which I find a bit odd, but it doesn't change much.

Disc 4 - Documentaries. Two documentaries, one old and one new.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Special Edition of a classic! March 20 2004
This movie is a classic horror action drama that set the new standard for zombie movies back in the late 70's. It's set after the events of " Night of the Living Dead" ( 1968), zombies have taken over the country and a group of human survivors hide out in a shopping mall for shelter and combats against the hordes of the undead.
A brilliant, entertaining and violent horror action movie with human drama, satire, black comedy, gore by Tom Savini ( of " Friday The 13th" fame) and a message that we ourselves created monsters that make literally death in society. George Romero has done a wonderful job on this movie including with his partner Dario Argento and a great music score by The Goblins.
The DVD is quite excellent in picture and sound quality, the extras are out of this world such as Commentary, Trailers, TV Spots, Radio Spots, Bio of George Romero, Comic Book Preview and a couple of Easter Eggs. This is a must own movie if you love the genre, but in September there is going to be a super 3-disc edition featuring the director's cut, Theatrical Cut and Italian Argento Zombi cut.
See this movie now before you see the remake.
Similar movies recommended: " The Evil Dead", " Zombie", " Day of the Dead", " Night of the Living Dead" ( 1968), " Scanners", " Nightmare City ( a.k.a. City of the Walking Dead)", " Burial Ground", " City of the Living Dead ( a.k.a.
