Product Description

In this the third film in the continuing saga of the undead from writer/director George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead, Survival of the Dead), a small group of scientists and soldiers have taken refuge in an underground missile silo where they struggle to control the flesh-eating horror that walks the earth above. But will the final battle for the future of the human race be fought among the living or have they forever unleashed the hunger of the dead? Lori Cardille, Joe Pilato and Richard Liberty star in this controversial classic with groundbreaking gore effects by Tom Savini.

Additional Features

Pilloried at the time of its release in 1985, George A. Romero's Day of the Dead has since enjoyed a major reappraisal by critics and fans who have come to view the film as the director's most savage sociopolitical polemic; that attitude is reflected in the reverential tone of the extensive special features for Scream Factory's Blu-ray presentation. As with other titles in the Shout Factory imprint's catalog, the extras compiled here are a mix of new material and older featurettes ported over from previous DVD releases, most notably the 2004 double-disc Divimax edition. The latter includes lively commentary by Romero, his leading lady Lori Cardille, special effects legend Tom Savini, and Romero's longtime production designer, the late Cletus Anderson, as well as a second track by Pulp Fiction cowriter Roger Avary, a devout Romero fan. Camcorder-lensed test footage of various grisly effects culled from Savini's archives and a promo for Pennsylvania's Gateway Commerce Center, which served as the underground location for the film, have also been ported over from the Divimax disc, along with a mixed bag of theatrical trailers and television spots.

Chief among the new material on the Blu-ray is World's End: The Legacy of Day of the Dead, a making-of documentary/retrospective that features interviews with Romero, Savini, and a number of their longtime collaborators, including cinematographer Michael Gornick, composer/first assistant director John Harrison, and editor Pasquale Buba, as well as cast members Lori Cardille, Joseph Pilato, Howard Sherman, Terry Alexander, Gary Klar, makeup effects artists John Vulich and Everett Burrell, and even featured zombie players. The lengthy (90-minutes-plus) featurette covers nearly every aspect of Day's difficult gestation, from its aborted early draft and Romero's struggles with producers over ratings to the initial negative response and ultimate redemption in the eyes of fans and filmmakers alike. It's an informative, frequently funny (especially Savini and Pilato's contributions) and heartfelt production that should satisfy most Romero and Day admirers. The other new extra is Underground: A Look into the Day of the Dead Mines, a brief but polished return visit to the limestone caverns at Gateway; the rest of the supplemental features are rounded out by production and location photos and a dizzying array of promotional material, from cover art from numerous home video releases to Topps trading cards (!) and magazine scans. The Scream Factory Blu-ray is by no means the definitive presentation of Day of the Dead--the behind-the-scenes footage from the 1998 Anchor Bay release (some of which is glimpsed in World's End) and original script and production notes included in the Divimax version, as well as its own lengthy documentary featurette, The Many Days of Day of the Dead, are not included here, so collectors may want to hold onto those discs--but it's an exceptionally fine addition to any Romero and '80s horror fan's library. --Paul Gaita

By Michael R Gates VINE VOICE on March 22, 2004
Format: DVD
The third--and possibly the final--entry in George Romero's DEAD series, 1985's DAY OF THE DEAD was initially panned by both critics and horror fans. Many complained that, in spite of the much improved special FX, the film did not live up to the creepiness and the literacy of the groundbreaking first film of the trilogy, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968), nor was its content equal to the offbeat humor and satirical subtext of the second film, DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978). Thus, it was simply written off as another exercise in shock value. But in the time that has passed since the initial release of DAY OF THE DEAD, many fans and critics alike have grown to regard the film as a worthy entry in the series, with many claiming it has become their favorite of the three.
DAY OF THE DEAD is a claustrophobic character study set almost entirely in a secured underground military bunker. The story picks up some months after the end of DAWN OF THE DEAD, with the earth now nearly overrun by the flesh-eating corpses (one character estimates that the zombies outnumber the "normals" by circa 400,000 to 1). Military personnel have been assigned to the bunker with orders to protect and assist the group of scientists there who are experimenting on zombies in order to find a "solution" for the pandemic. However, much time has passed already with few results, and the assignment is taking its toll on the soldiers. When the Major in charge of the unit dies, the next in rank, an unbalanced Captain named Rhodes, takes over the project with the intention of shutting it all down and bugging out. The scientists resist, of course, as do the few civilians under the scientists' employ, and the resulting strife just might result in the annihilation of these last vestiges of the human race.

George A romero's 3rd sequel in his Living Dead trilogy
has been given an all new HD transfer and a new 5.1 Master audio mix
with this Collectors edtion blu-ray from Scream factory
i have night of the living dead , Dawn of the Dead on blu-ray
so i knew i had to buy Scream factory's Day of the Dead
and it's Definitely worth the money for sure
the picture quality looks excellent in HD widescreen much better than Anchor bay dvd release from 6 years ago

The special features on this blu-ray release have been upgraded aswell
some of the extras from the old Anchor bay release are on this blu-ray
the Audio commentaries and Richard liberty Audio interview from the Anchor bay release are on this blu-ray
but the old making of Doco that's on the Anchor bay release is not on this blu-ray
instead Scream factory have produced an all new Documentary
called Worlds end, The Legacy of Day of the Dead
an 80mins Doco just on the making of the film, incredible Documentary for all big fans of this film
everyone from the film is interviewed
all the Actors and George romero, Tom savini and other make up effects assistants
and some of the extras that played some of the Zombies are all interviewed, incredible Doco
there is also a new featurette called the Day of the Dead mines
which is about the locations where the film was made

other extras like the still Gallery, TV spots are on this blu-ray aswell
so this new blu-ray release by scream factory is the version to get for sure
i gave it 5 stars.

A fine horror film in its own right, but it suffers in comparison to "Dawn of the Dead". Where "Dawn" thematically succeeds on its criticism of consumerism, it's hard to find where "Day" fits in the trilogy. And George Romero himself has stated that this was only a shadow of the original "dead" grand finale he envisioned. But the good news is that maybe we'll see a another sequel some day? It's time...the world needs another Zombie film!
But no matter...it's creepy, apocalyptic nightmare that probes a primal fear, i.e. being eaten. It's quite well-acted (in a yelling and screaming sort of way) in spite of its other shortcomings. Lori Cardille and Jarlath Conroy stand out; too bad they haven't done more film work (both are very active in indie/theater work). Josef Pilato has gone on to character roles, including Dean Martin in "Pulp Fiction".
One note regarding the special effects...they're *really* disturbing, especially Sarah's field surgery upon Miguel. But people don't pull apart or break quite so easily.
It's well worth seeing. If you can still find it, buy it. The extras (including a home video "making of" documentary) are compelling.

If you haven't see Day of the Dead and you're reading the viewer reviews of this film, it's presumably because you're either a zombie fan or you loved Night of the Living Dead and/or Dawn of the Dead. But you're not sure whether or not to watch this film because of the mixed reviews it received. My recommendation is that you should rent this film and watch it twice and if you liked the film buy the Anchor Bay remaster widescreen version.
The plot to Day of the Dead is simple. The world has been conquered by zombies, as seen in Day's predecessors. There are only 12 survivors left in Florida and they've taken refuge in an underground salt mine and silo. There's heated conflicts between the soldiers and the scientists and civilians and by the end, thousands of zombies pour into the silo and wreak graphic havoc.
Yes, Day of the Dead is extremely graphic and gory (It's probably the most violent and gory American horror film ever made) as most zombie films are. But this one actually has an original and interesting plot. Despite what some critics said about it, I found them to be wrong. The acting is also considerably stronger than Night or Dawn. There's also the infusion of new ideas such as an intelligent and human zombie and amputation to stop the spread of infection. The make up effects are also Tom Savini's best so don't miss the film.
