Scream Factory Fully Details ‘Land of the Dead’ and ‘Dawn of the Dead’ Blu-rays

A double dose of undead terror is coming this Halloween.

Scream Factory announced back in July that both George A. Romero’s Land of the Dead and Zack Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead are getting their Collector’s Edition Blu-ray treatment this year, and we now know that both will be released on October 31!

Both 2-disc Blu-rays contain the Unrated and Theatrical cuts. They also boast new 2K transfers, brand new extras and new interviews with cast and crew.

In Land of the Dead

“Zombies have turned all but a few fortified cities into desolate wasteland. Behind city walls, pockets of humanity cling to survival in a brutal society built by a handful of enterprising, ruthless opportunists like Kaufman (Dennis Hopper), who insulate themselves in high-rise towers and employ a band of mercenaries led by Riley (Simon Baker) to scavenge the countryside for food and other necessities, while the poor fend for themselves. When the previously mindless, slow-moving zombies begin to evolve into cunning, crafty killers and organize for a final catastrophic attack, a group of hardened mercenaries is called into action to protect the living from an army of the dead, even as they battle a rogue mercenary (John Leguizamo) who threatens the existence of their safe haven.”

  • I would buy these, but I already own the DVD double feature of both films. These are 2K re-masters, with tonnes of special features, but you’ve got to balance money, you know.

      Yeah I try to look for double packs. to condense my insane amount of movie I got lol. So I norm go for the double packs for cheap prices norm found in Walmart. They aren’t blu-ray but honestly it doesn’t matter to be and I truly don’t see any difference between them.

      • Although I personally prefer Blu-Ray, there’s too much stuff coming out for me to re-buy everything I already own, haha.

        • MrX13

          That’s why when I buy the BluRay, I just sell the DVD to co-workers or at the local DVD/CD Exchange store. Yes I may not get the money I want back but at least it’s something

        • zombie84_41

          Same. I must see like a million copies of the same movie come out like a billion times. I just recently pre-order my copy of Suspiria. It’s limited to only 8,000 copies. it comes with so much shit and its a 4K transfer of the old prints in its uncut form. it was 50$ but well worth the price. Theres still a few other flicks coming out I gotta get too. But seriously i’m going to be broke LOL.

        There’s a pretty clear difference between blu ray and dvd. Dvd is good enough i guess, but blu rays give you a much crisper image. At least they’re almost out of upgrades. I read that anything above 8K is a waste since the human eye would be completely incapable of telling the difference.

        • zombie84_41

          Thats cool, I never knew that there was anything higher than 4K. Speaking about that how are those 4K movies they got. I don’t got a player yet. I got the TV but no player I been holding out till that Xbox one X comes out (which BTW is the dumbest most pathetic lazy name ever, and if you want the project scorpio name you gotta paid more just for a name they should of kept.)

  • MrX13

    Already own them on DVD and I think Dawn on BluRay already….I need to check again. But Land on BluRay would be awesome!

  • No Nose Nosferatu

    Can’t wait to own these sets.

    Bugger. Looks like it’s Region A so no good for my UK Blu-ray player 🙁
