Dawn Of The Dead 4k Blu-ray Details Released By Second Sight

Dawn of the Dead, the 1978 classic version directed by the late George Romero, is getting a 4K Blu-ray release on October 26th. Both a 4K version and a regular Blu-ray will be available. Both are crazy loaded with special features. And when we say loaded, we mean exhaustive. These are the most definitive versions of the film that have and will ever exist. Dawn of the Dead is one of the most important films from the 1970s and maybe the most important film of all-time. So, there certainly isn't a more deserving title for such exhaustive editions. Multiple cuts of the film, tons of new special features, three audio cd's, a 150-page book with essays, interviews, and tons of photographs, the novelization of the film, and it all comes housed in a special rigid box featuring the classic Dawn of the Dead key art. The best part is that it is region free if you get the 4K version. Check out the box art and the complete list of special features below.
