    This is an upcoming six disc set (1 UHD, 5 Blu-ray's) from Italy. The Argento cut received the immaculate restoration which is on the UHD disc. I can't wait to see what else is in this set.

    That's a sweet fucking cover if I've ever seen one.

    It's certainly different. I'm terrified when I think of how much this is going to cost.

    I pre-ordered this and it came to just over $42.00 with shipping to the United States.

    One thing I have hoped about 4K from the beginning was that it becomes a laserdisc type niche and the horror genre thrives on it. Horror has thrived on LD, DVD, bluray. I think that will continue with 4K media, even with much of the world going to streaming and what not. Hopefully now that Synapse's Suspiria won't be hitting until at least 2017, there is an increase chance of that hitting 4K has well.

    No intent on getting 4K but it's good for the genre, regardless.

    I'm defiantly putting my order in, even though I'm not yet 4k capable and even if it is just the Argento cut that's getting the 4k slot. With the limbo state Dawn is in right now, I fear it won't be stubbornly released until Romero kicks the bucket and Rubinstein cashes in on the posthumous bump that follows every celebrity death. And lately Dawn releases have been gone before you know it. So I'm placing my order at nearly any price.

    I'm so excited I created a thread less than a month ago on it...: http://www.horrordvds.com/community/threads/dawn-of-the-dead-zombi-in-4k-ultrahd-italy.47743/

    And you were so excited Buck you responded. ;)

    I'm not 4K yet myself but couldn't pass up this set. I missed out on the Arrow blu and that is commanding ridiculous prices. Hopefully some of the extras will be English friendly.

    I'm sorry X-human you're right, I saw that cover and wasn't thinking clearly. If the mods can merge this thread with X-human's, that would be greatly appreciated.

    $43.09??? For a UHD 4K remaster of Dawn plus five additional blu-ray's? Unbelievable. I've never preordered any blu-ray this fast that wasn't produced by Twilight Time.

    I'm going to put in a pre-order also... it can always be cancelled later on. I'm curious as to what could be on the other 5 Blu-rays.

    ...and that's a cool looking cover regardless!

    I'm not 4K capable yet either, but if the UHD releases also include regular Blu-rays and aren't much more expensive, it's wise to just invest in the future. I actually just purchased my first 4K release the other week (The Martian - Extended Edition) which was actually on sale cheaper than the normal Blu-ray edition.

    Wow, that's a haul for the DVD set. Very nice. Depending on what the other discs in this disc are comprised of, the Arrow and Anchor Bay blu-ray's may no longer be sought after.

    I was stoked when it sold haha. I didn't think I'd get that much. Best part is I won that set, so it's all profit! :D

    It will be interesting to know what is on those other disc's.

    I was under the impression the Euro was the worst. Never seen it myself.
