Is the dawn of the dead on Blu ray?
At least I have Dawn of the Dead on Blu-ray since the Anchor Bay Blu-ray disc is out of print and a bit pricey these days. The picture and sound are quite good on this German Blu-ray and it will play in U.S. players. However, this film is heavily cut. Meaning that a lot of the “gore” scenes are trimmed.
Is the dawn of the Dead DVD region free?
The images on the listing show the inside of the packaging, which clearly shows the first three cuts of the film are 4K Blu-Ray, not regular Blu-Ray. This is important because 4K Blu-Ray is region free, but regular is not. So, I ordered this expecting 3/4 discs to be usable in my NA blu-ray player.
How long is the extended version of Dawn of the dead?
An extended version has found its way onto file-sharing sites called the ‘Extended Mall Hours’ cut, which combines footage from all three major versions of the film into a 155-minute cut.
Which is the first director’s cut of Dawn of the dead?
This “Director’s cut” is instead the version rushed into shape for a showing at Cannes. The shorter version shown theatrically has tighter editing and almost all Goblin’s music. So technically, the theatrical version is the “Final Director’s Cut” and the Cannes version is a “1st director’s cut”.
We reviewed the Region free UK Ultra HD Blu-ray release of Dawn of the Dead on a Panasonic 65DX902B Ultra HD 4K TV with a Panasonic DP-UB450 Dolby Vision HDR10+ 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player. This cut of the film has had the most love lavished upon it; the clean-up is superlative.
Why are there different versions of Dawn of the dead?
Seamless branching is a great way to present multiple versions of a film when there are obvious key differences between edits, but the restoration team soon found that the Theatrical Cut and the Extended ‘Cannes’ Cut had many small differences between them, so it made more sense to give each their separate disc.
