Dawn of the Dead (1978) Second Sight 4K restoration Blu-ray

British Label Second Sight Films will be releasing Director George A. Romero’s zombie classic, Dawn of the Dead (1978) on a restoration 4K Blu-ray Limited Edition: A 7-Disc set with 3 cuts different cuts of the film: Theatrical, Cannes, and Argento.

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!
