Universal Studios Home Video has announced that Dawn of the Dead is headed for DVD on October 26, 2004. The DVD will be released in both a “horrifying” new version considered too scary for theater audiences, the “Dawn of the Dead Unrated Director’s Cut,” containing additional footage that not only extends the movie experience but turns up the terror temperature, and the theatrical version. Dawn of the Dead is priced at $29.98 SRP and is also available on VHS for $22.98 SRP.
Both the rated and unrated Dawn of the Dead DVDs contain bonus materials that deliver a frightfest of scary fun for fans, including two original segments created especially for the DVD: “The Lost Tape,” a video diary containing over 15 minutes of the last days of Andy, one of the survivors; and “Special Bulletin,” increasingly grim news reports about the zombie invasions that expand the film’s nightmarish storyline. Also included are nail-biting deleted scenes, “incisive” interviews, commentaries from the cast and filmmakers, and featurettes about the creation of the unforgettably gruesome zombies.
The “Dawn of the Dead” DVDs include these bone-chilling extras:
