For me, it remains the greatest of all zombie films, the one against which all others are measured, and I know it remains a favourite of many others too. However, in both the UK and North America, the Blu-ray releases are out of print, and producer Richard P. Rubinstein has been refusing to license the film out for a reasonable fee.
However, it seems that the deadlock has been broken. ‘Bloody Disgusting’ reports that Second Sight made the announcement with a simple “It’s happening” tweet, which included an iconic piece of Dawn Of The Dead artwork. This is fabulous news and I think I can now look forward to a Blu-ray release that will do this classic justice. None of the previous Blu-ray releases were as impressive as Anchor Bay’s stunning Region ‘A’ DVD set which contained all three main versions of the film and even looked better!
