Dawn of the Dead Ultimate Edition Volume Three
#1
In 2006 a group of fans from Original Trilogy created Dawn of the Dead Ultimate Edition Volume Two. Spread over four DVDs, it was a companion to the recently released Ultimate Edition Box Set, collating commentary tracks, documentaries and features that were not included in it.

This blu ray set is an updated version of that project, containing all the features used in Volume Two, with HD footage where possible and additional content. Thanks are given to those who created Volume 2, for without that this project would not be possible.

This is in no way a replacement for a legitimate copy of Dawn of the Dead.


Blu Ray Disc One (22.4 gig)
  • Extended Edition in HD with the choice of the Elite Laserdisc Audio Commentary, the UK BMG DVD Audio Commentary and a soundtrack only created using the original drop cues.
  • HD reconstruction of the Japanese Suspiria Version, using HD video and the original TV broadcast audio, with the choice of the original opening credits or HD opening credits.
Blu Ray Disc Two (18.8 gig)
  • House of George Romero Interview
  • Documentary on George A. Romero
  • The Directors - George A.Romero
  • G4 Icons - Episode 8 from Season 4 - George A. Romero
  • Clive Barker's A-Z of Horror - Episode 3 - Kingdom of the Dead
  • Son of The Incredibly Strange Film Show - Episode 8 from Season 4 - George A. Romero & Tom Savini
  • Mall Tour with David Emge, Ken Foree & Lenny Lies
  • Airstrip Tour with David Emge, Ken Foree & Jim Krut
  • 22 year cast reunion Q&A from Cinema Wasteland
  • Laserdisc supplementary material
  • German Super 8 Version with English Language
  • Japanese Explained Opening
  • Japanese TV Introduction with English subtitles
  • George A. Romero's Introduction to Dawn of the Dead from UK TV 1997
  • Biohazard 2 aka Resident Evil 2 - two versions of the George Romero Directed Trailer and a short making of documentary

The discs are both BD-J, created using professional software with resume function and animated menus. I would strongly suggest burning these to physical discs as software blu ray players don't always handle menus well, especially animated menus. I have tested these discs extensively but if there are any errors or issues let me know. This is my first completed project so hope you enjoy.

No that’s the Japanese cinema intro. This one had an intro from a Japanese film critic but had a completely different soundtrack. It’s based on the Argento cut but runs about 30 minutes shorter. Only aired on TV once.

There's a VHS recording of it on Archive.org actually if you're interested in checking that out.

Great to see this getting a new lease of life!

Thanks alleycat for the work in this.

BIGROB! Hey fella. Hope you're doing well. I remember putting all this together with you back in the day. That drop cue track took days to sync up, would probably be a lot easier to do now Smile

Is this the German (?) behind the scenes footage/interview taken during Dawn of the Dead?

I remember providing this for the project way back when but can't see what else it might be.

Thanks.
