I have never seen this film but am intrigued by the new divmax DVD and always like to see original versions of films before their re-makes. I can say that I have seen and enjoyed both versions of Romero's Night of the Living Dead. Usually, this would cause me to run out and rent it's sequal(?) without reservations. I am concerned however in reading various posts about this film linked to another director named Dario Argento.If my fears are correct, this is the person responsible for the film Suspiria. When released on DVD, I ran out and bought this title sight unseen based on the enormously positive reviews on this forum! As I recall, it was almost unanimously touted as THE "scariest film of all time". Sadly, I did not find this to be the case. To my thinking, this was easily the worst movie I have ever seen, actually beating out Kevin Costner's "The Postman"( I had hoped this feat was not possible). To the lovers of Suspiria,( everybody who posted about this film on this forum), I ask your forgiveness. Please do not flame me. I know that this film is a "masterpiece" because so many of you make it so. I am willing to admit that there must be something wrong with me for not seeing in this film what everbody else sees. I do however, want to know if Dawn of the Dead is close to Night of the living dead in it's storytelling and sharp underlying political commentary or is it in any way shape or form similiar to the incomprhensible mess that I alone perceive Suspiria to be. If it is the latter, then I would be gravely disapointed in having spent even the measley two bucks on this rental.
