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 jewelry 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. The "Special Edition" DVD release has a widescreen presentation, theatrical trailer, and Dolby sound. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

I bought this DVD and I must say - WOW!!! Thank goodness I didn't get suckered into buying the previous releases on DVD. I already had the theatrical cut and the extended cut on VHS, so I waited for a DVD with that extended cut to be released. 'Director's Cut' according to the liner note's of this DVD package is a bit confusing because the theatrical cut WAS the director's cut. My experience with Anchor Bay's release style (re-releasing the same cash cow titles under different packages over and over again) told me to hold on for a definitive release - and here it is!!!!
I haven't watched all the extras, but I did sit through the European cut disk, watching it with the commentary on by the four main actors David Emge (Stephen) Ken Foree (Peter) Scott Reiniger (Roger) and Gaylen Ross (Francine). And I must say, that audio commentary is ALMOST (almost) worth the price of the DVD set alone. It's a lot of fun to hear these guys recollect their days on the movie set, and making fun of each other's character's on the screen. It sounds like they had an awesome time doing the commentary. What's also great is that they even know what was happening on the screen. At some points, they even recite the dialogue before it is spoken. I've heard a lot of commentaries, and usually the actors or directors who do them don't have such clear recollections of what's going to happen on screen. Also, certain scenes they commented on didn't even show up because they were only in the US cut, like the nun zombie scene, which I thought was also great because it showed they really paid attention to the film and didn't just treat it like another job.

People who cannot see the genius of this movie have no imagination whatsoever. The plot and overall story by George A. Romero is superb, and indeed frightening despite some of the campy special effects.
If you see the movie in the context of events, taking into account the monumental distaster that is out of control, it's truly horrific. The fact that Romero doesn't offer a concrete reason why the dead return to life, captures a strong sense of desperation for the living as they are being eliminated as a race. They don't know what's causing it so they have no way of knowing how to stop it- aside from the idea of nuking the big cities.
Our four heroes did make a few dumb mistakes. But Romero's point was to capture the realism of what happens when fear and/or ego overtakes them- they panicked and did things that were downright stupid. A very human thing to do.
The movie is a chaotic masterpiece. The story of Peter, Roger, Steve and Fran is that of disaster, desperation and ultimately, TRAGEDY. They struggle with their lives for survival and after a while, to have some sense of normalcy while holing up in the shopping mall for months. Romero's captures it beautifully as the calm before the storm, which ends horribly for the four.
Nevertheless it was comforting to see Fran and Peter fly off into the uncertain future, offering a faint ray of hope for them.
Great job George! This movie is still a horror-shock classic for all time!

Going into this movie, I had high hopes, and all in all it filled them. I ended up watching the first half with some friends, who are not ones who usually would pick this type of movie. As you would have guessed, they didn't take to the film to well and we ended up stopping it after the white army dude stabbed a zombie in the ear and the bright pink blood poured out. They said it was to fake. We did get a share of laughs out of it though. For example when they are raiding the apartment building and the fat guy busts down a door and shoots one of the occupants causing his head to explode. Good stuff!
I myself believe the introduction that uses the television station could have been cut a little shorter, but hey I can't change it so Ill just fast forward.
The gore effects in this movie are extreme for its time. The biting and the shooting is all the gore you get until you get into the meat of the film. The best gore through out the film has got to be the part where the zombies tear the stomachs open of a couple of the bikers, intense. They actually show the intestines spilling out and the bikers faces as they scream in agony.

By not stating what I thought was funny, I'll just allow the viewer to pick out his or her own comedic parts with in the movie. Believe me, you will find at the very least one part in this film funny. If not a laugh out loud then a slight chuckle.
If I may I would like to say to J. from Montclair that did the review that is one star and long, dude you are reading way to into this man. This is not totally a serious horror movie. Your dissecting it from every angle possible, you can't do that with this movie or it will suck. Once again, it's not totally serious.

Well this DVD has some nice extras like posters, radio and TV spots, trailers, different sound settings, and more. It's worth it if you are a horror/gore movie fan.
