    A while ago, I saw this on IFC along with a making of... documentary. Whats the story with this on DVD. It appears that it was on DVD at one time but now seems to be OOP.

    I did a search and found nothing specific on this title except for a possible re-release. Does anyone have any specific info on what we might get?

    Anchor Bay has it slated for a Fall/Winter 2003 release. Multiple cuts of the film and tons of extras. I believe it's gonna be a 3-disc set.

    I believe the documentary Patrick is speaking of is available on Synapse (?) DVD.

    Yeah, it's called "Document of the Dead" and it is indeed available on DVD from Synapse, although I hear that it may wind up on the "Dawn" 3-disc set as well.

    Document of the Dead will definitely end up on the 3-disc, even though it's not so much a making of Dawn. It covers many apsects of George Romero and his career in general. [​IMG]

    Sorry, they're not related. Sort of like that Bruce Campbell guy that's on this board that's not the real deal either. [​IMG]
    Seriously, I'm glad on holding off the previous purchase. I proudly proclaim that unlike most people on this board, I like Dawn of the Dead beause it's this fantasy I have of running amok inside a shopping mall. That and there's zombies to be blown up. [​IMG]

    Yup, they blowed up real good!

    I've been holding out for this one for years. I can't wait until it finally comes out. The thing I like about Romero's "Dead" films (even DAY) is that they're all different in tone and style. NIGHT is like a Hitchcock film. DAWN is allegory. DAY is more of a testosterone-fest. Although DAY was sorely under-financed, I still feel that it's effective.
