Dawn Of The Dead (Unrated Director's Cut) [Hd Dvd]
Are you ready to get down with the sickness? Movie logic dictates that you shouldn't remake a classic, but Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead defies that logic and comes up a winner. You could argue that George A. Romero's 1978 original was sacred ground for horror buffs, but it was a low-budget classic, and Snyder's action-packed upgrade benefits from the same manic pacing that energized Romero's continuing zombie saga. Romero's indictment of mega-mall commercialism is lost (it's arguably outmoded anyway), so Snyder and screenwriter James Gunn compensate with the same setting--in this case, a Milwaukee shopping mall under siege by cannibalistic zombies in the wake of a devastating viral outbreak--a well-chosen cast (led by Sarah Polley, Ving Rhames, Jake Weber, and Mekhi Phifer), some outrageously morbid humor, and a no-frills plot that keeps tension high and blood splattering by the bucketful. Horror buffs will catch plenty of tributes to Romero's film (including cameos by three of its cast members, including gore-makeup wizard Tom Savini), and shocking images are abundant enough to qualify this Dawn as an excellent zombie-flick double-feature with 28 Days Later, its de facto British counterpart. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Is it worth the money?
With so much action and over 2 hours of special features I'd say that it is worth the money. If you haven't already you should try out the original so that you can compare the two. See if you can spot the cameo by Ken Foree Who played the policeman in the original film!
Best Modern Zom Horror movie in my opinion. Hard to beat
I rate this up there as one of Snyder's best.
Cheap scares yet this movie revoltionised Zom TV series and zom horror
Edge of your seat for most of it with extremely well cast characters.
Rooting for the better ones to survive.
Not one to watch with an easily scared girlfriend
