George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead gets a "Collector's Edition" Blu-ray and DVD release this week, courtesy of Scream Factory. If you'd like more information on the newly restored version, we have release details, a look at the original theatrical trailer, and two clips.

“Zombie horror fans and movie collectors will rejoice when the definitive release of DAY OF THE DEAD Collector’s Edition Blu-ray and DVD arrives on SEPTEMBER 17 from SCREAM FACTORY. Featuring an all-new HD transfer of the film, this must-have collector’s edition contains an all-new interview with George Romero and a bounty of insightful bonus extras. DAY OF THE DEAD is the third film installment in the continuing saga of the undead from celebrated writer/ director George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead, Survival of the Dead).

A small group of scientists and soldiers have taken refuge in an underground missile silo where they struggle to control the flesh-eating horror that walks the earth above. But will the final battle for the future of the human race be fought among the living or have they forever unleashed the hunger of the dead? Lori Cardille (Tales from the Darkside), Joe Pilato (Night of the Living Dead: Origins 3D) and Richard Liberty (The Crazies) star in this controversial classic with groundbreaking gore effects by Tom Savini.”
