Synopsis

"Bloody Good Fun." – Ebert and Roeper

Heart-pounding action and bone-chilling thrills power this edgy and frightening remake of George A. Romero's apocalyptic horror classic, Dawn Of The Dead! From visionary filmmaker Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen), this pulse-pounding jolt-a-thon stars Ving Rhames (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2), Sarah Polley (Splice), Jake Weber (Wendigo), Mekhi Phifer (Divergent) and Ty Burrell (Modern Family).

The world is in danger when a mysterious virus turns people into mindless, flesh-eating zombies. In a mall in the heartland, a handful of survivors wage a desperate, last-stand battle to stay alive ... and human!

Why We Love It

“By not trying to outdo the original George Romero classic, this Dawn manages to stand on its own and be its own movie with the only real similarities being in name and setting only. The characters are different. The social commentary is different. Even the zombies are different offering up a far bloodier interpretation of the classic walking undead. Scream Factory unleashes the Dawn of the Dead Collector's Edition upon fans…this new edition comes with a host of new and interesting bonus features as well as the film's original Theatrical Cut making it a more complete package available to consumers. Highly recommended.” – Matthew Hartman, High Def Digest

“This release is another home run for Scream Factory – if you’re a fan of the zombie subgenre or Zack Snyder’s filmography, you won’t find a better release of 2004’s Dawn of the Dead than this two-disc Collector’s Edition.” – Adam Frazier, Geeks of Doom

“[Dawn of the Dead] looks magnificent on Blu-Ray from Scream Factory! The image itself is very clean with an abundance of detail in every frame and black levels that are incredibly inky and authentic. Colors pop with vibrancy throughout, especially in the clothing and various mall locations, with an especially brutal bright red tone for the bloodier sequences that shows up wonderfully in high definition.” – Patrick McCabe, We Live Entertainment

“…there’s no denying the extras on this one make this release a grand slam…” – Brandon Peters, Why So Blu

“This is the best version there is and I say go for it. Definitely a fun pickup.” – Michael Scott, AV Nirvana

“In typical Scream Factory fashion, Dawn Of The Dead (2004) looked absolutely phenomenal as it played out across my living room television.  Offering an all new remastered video track, this release offers a significantly cleaner look into the story that has long been exalted by horror fans; offering absolutely no visual distortion whatsoever.  In fact, some of the more notable sequences were the ones with gunshot wounds to a zombie’s head.   The overall detail that has been made available in the gore and blood allowed for a much more impactful experience, and you can definitely tell that the folks over at Scream Factory paid really close attention to detail while working with this film.” – Doug, ReDVDit!

“Zack Snyder’s remake of Dawn of the Dead is a fun and entertaining zombie film that manages to stand on its own thanks to its talented cast, outstanding makeup effects, and a narrative that goes in new and interesting directions, all the while paying homage to Romero’s classic. Shout! Factory’s Collector’s Edition comes packed with over two and a half hours of bonus features and two cuts of the film presented in their usual outstanding quality, so if you’re one of the film’s many fans, then this is a release that is certainly worth adding to your collection.” – Jeff Beck, The Blu Spot
