Dawn Of The Dead – Standard Edition Unboxing

Second Sight have released a Standard Edition that, although lacking in some of the extra goodies that the LE provided, still combines the three incredible cuts of George A. Romero’s unforgettable masterpiece and fully-loaded special features disc, in a beautiful digipack with a rigid slipcase.
