DO NOT BUY THIS, LIONSGATE RECALL THE DVD NOW AND FIX THE PROBLEM!!!
EDIT: The fixed version is available from other retailers, Amazon why aren't you carrying it?
If they wanted to do it right, Lionsgate should have presented the entire film, along with the documentary "John Huston and The Dubliners", which chronicles the making of the film. Maybe, some day, Lionsgate or some other corporate Neanderthal, will somehow stumble on the right formula. As for now, I recommend that moviegoers who cherish the film should stick to the videocassette if you are lucky to still have one. As for those who have never seen The Dead and are intrigued by it: Don't buy this DVD. It is not the film John Huston made.
