This Halloween, upgrade your copies of DAWN OF THE DEAD (2004) and LAND OF THE DEAD!


I've always been a big fan of George A. Romero's LIVING DEAD films, so I'm pretty excited for these two releases! DAWN OF THE DEAD was an unexpected hit, and far better than anyone expected. (I give most of that credit to James Gunn!) LAND OF THE DEAD, while a far cry from the entries that came before it, is still a fun and engaging zombie flick with Romero's brand of societal commentary. I look forward to double-dipping on these two titles!


Synopsis: Heart-pounding action and bone-chilling thrills power this edgy and frightening remake of George A. Romero's apocalyptic horror classic, DAWN OF THE DEAD! From visionary filmmaker Zack Snyder (300, WATCHMEN), this pulse-pounding jolt-a-thon stars Ving Rhames (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, VOL. 2), Sarah Polley (SPLICE), Jake Weber (WENDIGO), Mekhi Phifer (DIVERGENT), and Ty Burrell (Modern Family).

The world is in danger when a mysterious virus turns people into mindless, flesh-eating zombies. In a mall in the heartland, a handful of survivors wage a desperate, last-stand battle to stay alive and maintain their humanity!

Synopsis: Legendary filmmaker George A. Romero returns to unleash another chapter in his zombie series! In this new tale of terror, Romero creates a harrowing vision of a modern-day world where the walking dead roam a vast uninhabited wasteland and the living try to lead "normal" lives behind the high walls of a fortified city. A new society has been built by a hand of ruthless opportunists, who live in luxury in the towers of a skyscraper, high above the less fortunate citizens who must eke out a hard life on the streets below.

With the survival of the city at stake, a group of mercenaries is called into action to protect the living from the evolving army of the dead waiting outside the city walls. LAND OF THE DEAD features a cast of great actors including Dennis Hopper (TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE PART 2), Simon Baker, Asia Argento, Robert Joy and John Leguizamo.
