    This is a odd one to me. Some scenes look sorta/kinda better in the old and some(most of them) the new looks way better. And the new is sharper overall, but loses some color and detail somehow. Couple darker too. Hard to explain. What do you think?

    I thought the same thing. But then again, when you're watching it on a TV it can often appear a little different than some screenshots comparisons.

    Contrast may be a bit too high on the new one, but I think they may have applied a modern orange / teal color grading scheme to the old release that may not have been accurate to the original intent.

    Ha, no. Now I forgot where I got that yesterday. But I saw it posted somewhere (while looking for other stuff) and knew it wasn't on the thread. But it wasn't from their website recently.

    Day of the Dead "Ultimate Edition" coming in November. Looks like Umbrella is including the extras from Anchor Bay, Arrow, and Scream Factory editions. Guessing the "HD master never before seen in Australia" is likely the one from Scream Factory's Collector's Edition (?).

    This gruesome follow-up to the acclaimed DAWN OF THE DEAD follows a ragtag group of soldiers and scientists working to cure the undead plague but being deep underground and growing increasingly unstable brings the question of what their real threat is: the zombies or themselves?

    Featuring a HD master never before seen in Australia, THE DAY OF THE DEAD: ULTIMATE EDITION collects a slew of bonus material onto a Blu-ray and DVD set, making it the definitive must-have release for fans of George A. Romero’s 1985 gut-ripping classic."

    It's disheartening that it's in SD. I've seen a lot of "that'll never come out on Blu-ray" titles get released recently; even if they had a "DVD only" release almost as recently. This one's a guilty pleasure that'd be tough to refrain from.

    I remember enjoying it a hell of a lot back in the day. I don't even know if I could find my VHS tape recorded off cable decades ago.
