THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED AND THE WINNER HAS BEEN NOTIFIED

When I reviewed Second Sight’s superb limited edition Dawn of the Dead boxset, I said “it could be a contender for the best single title release of all time!” So, it’s safe to say I was impressed. Unsurprisingly, given the quality of the set and love many horror fans have for the film, that edition sold out fairly quickly, but thankfully Second Sight are releasing standard edition versions of both their 4K and Blu-ray releases of Dawn of the Dead on 22nd March, as well as releasing their remastered versions on digital platforms.

To celebrate, Second Sight have offered us a copy of the film on Blu-ray to give away to one lucky reader.

Details on how to enter the competition are at the bottom of this page, but in the meantime, below is some information about the releases:

After the huge success of its lavish Limited Edition box sets released in Autumn 2020, the dead are preparing to walk the earth once more as Second Sight announces the release of the definitive restored versions of George A Romero’s zombie classic Dawn Of The Dead in standard editions on 22 March 2021.

The standard editions of this beautifully restored, comprehensive edition of the seminal horror, feature three different versions of the film, along with a fourth disc of special features across two separate formats Dawn Of The Dead 4K UHD and Dawn Of The Dead Blu-ray. It also marks the first time the newly restored versions of the film are available on video on demand and as a digital release via all major platforms.

Acclaimed by fans and critics alike, these presentations offer completely restored versions of the film, each including the original theatrical cut, the extended “Cannes” cut and the Argento cut, making it the most comprehensive release ever of the film acknowledged to be one of the greatest horror movies of all time. Each version has a different commentary track, with the theatrical cut offering two.

The bonus disc of special features is packed with exclusive, new material as well as archive interviews, including the previously unreleased The Lost Romero Dawn Interview. Others include a tour of the shopping mall location, a look at its special effects and more. Please see list in full below.

The film originally arrived 10 years after the seminal Night of the Living Dead and ushered in a new era of zombie films. It showed Romero once again ahead of the curve, mixing biting political satire with state-of-the-art-gore for a genre-defining masterpiece that packs as much of a punch today as it did 40 years ago.

With a zombie epidemic escalating, a small band of survivors seek refuge in that shrine to capitalism, the shopping mall. But the undead, still possessed by an instinctive desire to consume, have
