A mysterious plague causes the newly dead to rise from their graves and begin to eat the living in this horror remake, starring Ving Rhames and Sarah Polley. During the ruckus caused by all the zombies walking about, a group of humans takes refuge in a shopping mall. Polley plays a young nurse, and Rhames stars as Kenneth, a mall cop.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, with Halloween looming, the remake of George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead sold more than 1 million combined DVD and VHS units to zombiephiles across the country Tuesday, the video's first day on store shelves, according to industry sources. Director Zack Snyder's remake of the 1978 classic bloodletting gore-fest apparently was timed just right for home video, generating almost as much revenue as its $59 million domestic boxoffice take for Universal Studios Home Entertainment during its first day at retail and rental, sources said.
The Week 1 home video best seller was another USHE horror-thriller, Van Helsing, which sold more than 4 million combined DVD and VHS units to retail and rental outlets, generating an estimated $65 million, USHE executives said. The vampire fest was the nation's second-best rental title its debut week ending Oct. 24, generating an estimated $9.1 million during its first week, according to Video Store magazine research.Read More

Dawn of the Dead: Look out! The dead are returning again! Just in time for Halloween and exploding with heart-stopping surprises and nerve-shredding fun, comes the DVD release of "Dawn of the Dead" on October 26, 2004. The DVD will be released in both a horrifying new version considered too scary for theater audiences, the "Dawn of the Dead Unrated Director's Cut," containing additional footage that not only extends the movie experience but turns up the terror temperature, and the theatrical version. An edge-of-your-seat roller coaster ride that FOX-TV calls "one of the best horror flicks in years," "Dawn of the Dead" is priced at $29.98 SRP and is also available on VHS for $22.98 SRP. Pre-order close is September 14 for DVD and September 28 for VHS.
Both the rated and unrated "Dawn of the Dead" DVDs contain exciting bonus materials that deliver a frightfest of scary fun for fans, including two original segments created especially for the DVD: "The Lost Tape," a video diary containing over 15 minutes of the last days of Andy, one of the survivors; and "Special Bulletin," increasingly grim news reports about the zombie invasions that expand the film's nightmarish storyline. Also included are nail-biting deleted scenes, "incisive" interviews, commentaries from the cast and filmmakers, and featurettes about the creation of the unforgettably gruesome zombies.Read More
Dawn of the Dead:Creature Corner recently received word from a source at Anchor Bay about some of the features that will accompany the remake's trip to DVD...According to the site, Dawn stars Ken Foree, Gaylen Ross, David Emge, and Scott Reiniger reunited for Anchor Bay to skip down memory lane...and we'll all get to hear what they had to say this Fall when the disc is released. Now, a lot of speculation is swirling around right now about how many discs this set will contain. We've heard two. Then three. Most recently we've heard four, that's from a reader who was in the presence of an Anchor Bay Dawn presentation held at a horror convention. The fourth disc will apparently contain Roy Frumkes' Document of the Dead. We've been unable to confirm that, however.
Dawn Of The Dead was released March 19th, 2004.Read More

Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed and Dawn Of The Dead:MovieHole recently sat down with screenwriter Jame Gunn to talk about his upcoming projects coming to theaters in a few short months. Here are the highlights...It's sleeker, faster, and furrier. The cast were much more comfortable with their roles, and have all upped their game. Raja was much more confidant, which shows up on screen. The movie is a lot more character-oriented, actually. The studio was a little freaked out when they first saw it – in a good way. It's a lot like Mystic River, only imagine the Sean Penn character as a talking dog... well, maybe not, but it is a lot different from the first movie. The mystery is much more of a mystery – in the last movie we had one real suspect, and then a couple of faux suspects. In this movie we have at least four real suspects.
Oh yeah, and the action – there are many bigger, more fun action sequences in this movie. We have a great sequence with Scooby and Shaggy dirt-boarding down the side of a mountain on trash can lids, followed by a couple of skeleton men with eyeballs for heads. We also have a great sequence with the Pterodactyl Ghost chasing the Mystery Machine through the city streets of Coolsville.Read More
