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!

Anchor Bay is proud to present the thrilling Theatrical Version of Romero’s masterpiece, now featuring an all-new High-Definition DiviMax™ transfer remastered in 5.1 DTS & Dolby Digital Surround Sound and featuring a startling new commentary by the director himself. This is DAWN OF THE DEAD like you’ve never seen or heard it before!
