Zombi: Dawn Of The Dead (1978) [DVD - Region 1]

Rare European Cut of the Romero Classic

In 1979, noted Italian master of horror Dario Argento (Suspiria, Tenebre) presented Zombi to European audiences - his re-edited version of George A. Romero's Dawn Of The Dead, the masterpiece that Roger Ebert called "one of the best and brilliantly crafted horror films ever made."

Argento's vision delivers a radically different movie than Romero's original cut, removing the film's 'American' humor to make it more of an intense action shocker and replacing the 'muzak' soundtrack with a savage score by legendary rock band Goblin (Suspiria, Deep Red). This deluxe edition of Zombi - now available for the first time ever in America as a single disc - is presented in head-blasting 5.1 Dolby Surround and packed with a flesh-ripping array of international extras.
