Land Of The Dead – Unboxing

In 2005, horror icon George A. Romero was handed his biggest ever budget to bring to life his most epic zombie vision ever. The ambitious and explosive undead nightmare was packed with all the hallmarks of a Romero flick – including the usual grisly visual effects and biting satire – but the film has largely faded into obscurity in the shadow of its iconic forefathers Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead. Now, the fantastic folks over at Fabulous Films have breathed new life into the underrated and action-packed zombie romp with a terrific Blu-ray and DVD re-release. 

I took a closer look at the Blu-ray below, and be sure to check out my thoughts on the film here.
