Dawn of the Dead: The European Cut

 

a.k.a.

 

Zombi: Dawn of the Dead


When there's no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the Earth.

 

"One of the best and brilliantly crafted horror films ever made." - Roger Ebert

 

"A completely different version than Romero's and still a great film!" - DVD Maniacs

 

"Devastatingly brutal." - Entertainment Weekly

 

In 1979, noted Italian master of horror Dario Argento (Suspiria, Tenebre) presented Zombi: Dawn of the Dead to European audiences - his re-edited version of George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead.  

 

In 1968, director George A. Romero brought us Night of the Living Dead.  It became the definitive horror film of its time.  Eleven years later, he would unleash the most shocking motion picture experience for all times.  As modern society is consumed by zombie carnage, four desperate survivors barricade themselves inside a shopping mall to battle the flesh-eating hordes of the undead.  This is the ferocious horror classic, featuring landmark gore effects by Tom Savini, that remains one of the most important - and most controversial - horror films in history.  

 

Argento's edition delivers a radically different movie that Romero's original cut, removing the film's 'American' humor to make it more of an intense action shocker and replacing the 'muzak' soundtrack with a savage score by legendary rock band Goblin (Suspiria, Deep Red).
