Default Weekly Comp - DAWN OF THE DEAD BLU-RAY!!!!! - 16/10/09

Now time for the big one!

Yes, it is THAT big! The highly anticipated DVD is here! Woo hoo! And 3 lucky winners will each win this excellent DVD of, I think you'll agree, a true horror classic.

So, here's some more info on this DVD!

Title: Dawn of the Dead Blu-ray
Label: Arrow Video
Release date: 19th October 2009
Certificate: 18
Running time:
Price: £17.99 (Blu-ray)
Director: George A. Romero
Stars: David Emge, Ken Foree, Scott H. Reiniger, Gaylen Ross


October 2009 sees the highly anticipated Blu-ray release of George A. Romero's classic zombie movie DAWN OF THE DEAD, presented as a special three-disc edition – exclusive to the UK – that represents the ultimate presentation of the film available anywhere in the world. Released just in time for Halloween, this is undoubtedly the horror movie Blu-ray release of the year.

Produced and compiled by Arrow Video with the kind of loving care and attention only the most devoted of zombie aficionados are willing to provide, this must-have three-disc set includes the George A. Romero approved Theatrical Cut of the film in 1080p resolution on Blu-ray, plus the Director's Cut and the Dario Argento Cut on DVD, the latter being made available on DVD as part of this collection for the first time in the UK.

Also included is a host of extras that include the rarely seen "Scream Greats" documentary on the career of special effects wizard Tom Savini, audio commentaries by the filmmakers and, for the first time, French Romero fanatic Nicolas Garreau's fascinating travelogue-come-documentary "Fan Of The Dead". Additionally, exclusively designed packaging features four different sets of artwork from which fans can choose to display the collection, including the little-seen "gasmask" artwork and an all-new, specially commissioned oil painting commemorating this landmark release of the film.

The release will be supported by screenings of DAWN OF THE DEAD and "Day Of The Dead" in Dublin (24th October), Edinburgh (25th October) and Glasgow (26th October) with special guests Ken Foree and Joe Pilato in attendance for audience Q&A sessions (see below for full details).

For those unfamiliar with this milestone movie in horror cinema history, here's the plot.

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 even more powerful and apocalyptic DAWN OF THE DEAD has been hailed by respected film critic Roger Ebert as "one of the best horror films ever made."

The three-disc DAWN OF THE DEAD (cert. 18) will be released on Blu-ray (£17.99) by Arrow Video on 19th October 2009.

Disc One (Blu Ray)
Theatrical cut of the feature in 1080p High Definition; DTS HD and Stereo audio options; audio commentary by director George A Romero, special effects artist Tom Savini and assistant director Chris Romero; audio commentary by producer Richard P.

Now, for a brownie point use the letters you've put in these red squares, shuffle them all about and spell the name of the director of one of the greatest (IMO zombie films ever made.) Do this and your name'll go in the hat. Do both things, and I'll put your name in twice. DOUBLE the chance of winning. Woooo!

Oh no BS, it's just the 1st disk that is a Blu-Ray mate. The 2nd (directors cut) and 3rd disks (argento's) will work fine on your DVD player. In fact, I've just finished watching the directors cut! It ruled!
