You may have your favorite version of the film, but there is no arguing about quality. They all look and sound fantastic. Each version has its own commentary track. The European version has the actors' commentary track, while the extended version has producer Richard Rubinstein. But it is the commentary track on the U.S theatrical version that is the real gem. It includes Romero himself, his wife Chris, and makeup artist Tom Savini. If you enjoyed the stellar commentary on Anchor Bay's Day of the Dead, you can expect more of the same. The three of them will take you on a strange trip down memory lane discussing every possible nuance and anecdote of Romero's crowning achievement. The extras on this set are too numerous to lay out in detail. However, two documentaries are particularly noteworthy. The Dead Will Walk (75 minutes) is an all-new documentary tracking the entire life cycle of the Dawn of the Dead phenomenon. It includes tons of interviews with cast and crew members. It is interesting to compare the new documentary with Roy Frumkes' Document of the Dead (92 minutes), an excellent, original documentary that was shot during the making of the film. All in all, Anchor Bay has done an exceptional job with this Ultimate Edition. If you make it through the set, feel free to award yourself an honorary Ph.D in the undead. --Rob Bracco
I really wanted to love this movie. I liked it. I love horror. I love classic horror. But this just felt a little boring at times. It's also a lot more dated than I expected. Read morePublished 13 days ago by SueBhoney

|which version is this?||
The Blu-ray edition is the U.S. theatrical version of DOTD running at 127 minutes. The extended version runs 139 minutes. Romero used the extended cut to premiere the film at the '78 Cannes Film Festival but George prefers the U.S. version.

|Extended Edition/Directors cut on Blu-Ray, NOW!||
Personally I'd love to see the version that circulated as a bootleg for years appear on blu ray. That version combined both the extended american version with the european cut so that you had the longest version ever.
