Default Zombie (1979) (4K remaster) coming from Blue Underground

Coming on November 27.


https://mvdb2b.com/s/ZombieLimitedEd...ge/BLU-BD-8022

Quote:
Brand-New 4K Remastered 40th Anniversary Limited Edition!

Zombie: Limited Edition

In Italy, it was considered the 'unofficial sequel' to DAWN OF THE DEAD. In England, it was known as ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS and banned as obscene. In America, it was called ZOMBIE and advertised with the depraved tag line "WE ARE GOING TO EAT YOU!" Tisa Farrow (THE GRIM REAPER), Ian McCulloch (CONTAMINATION), Al Cliver (CANNIBALS), and Richard Johnson (THE HAUNTING) star in this worldwide splatter sensation directed by 'Maestro Of Gore' Lucio Fulci (CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD, THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY) that remains one of the most eye-skewering, skin-ripping, gore-gushingly graphic horror hits of all time!

Just in time for its 40th Anniversary, Blue Underground is proud to present ZOMBIE in a brand-new 4K Restoration from the original uncut and uncensored camera negative. This is ZOMBIE like you've truly never seen it before, bursting at the seams with hours of new and archival Extras!

I would consider upgrading my DVD set if they include the English dub and Italian dub with English subtitles.

Also if they could make a music video of shark vs zombie as an extra, I would easily re-buy it.

Maybe itís because I found that the few BU releases I own to be underwhelming (except Maniac Cop 2 & 3) that I never picked this up. Will gladly purchase this as well as anything else they decide to redo.

Excellent, now i can upgrade my DVD! can't wait to see how it looks in it's new 4K restoration.

Saw this on video 25 years ago at age 12 and thought it was shocking as hell even that eyeball scene which made me cringe. Great movie! one of my fave zombie films and horror films.

My Arrow release is pretty good but if this is coming from a new scan then I'll approach with optimism.

I saw it at the Eurofest back in 1994, with Fulci in attendance. He introduced a lovely print of the movie, but it was in Italian, leading him to bluntly state:

"You don't need dialogue to understand a film like Zombi 2..."

The Arrow release is very solid. I'm thinking the biggest improvement with a BU 4K remaster will be the colors and contrast. I suspect the framing will be tighter compared to the Arrow as well since James White said in an interview that it was a "luxury" to be able to add more information to the sides that was never visible before.

I hope the emulsion scratch visible during the shark vs. zombie scene on the Arrow will be massaged out too.

Thankfully I only dropped $8 for the Arrow blu-ray, but I want to see screencaps before getting the BU remaster.

I own the Arrow steelbook of this but will gladly double dip if it's a nice remaster. Why not, I've bought this film so many times over the years anyway

Hoping they fix the damage in the shark scene. I believe it’s on the OCN, but a little revisionism would be welcome for me.

With these re-scanned in 4k re-releases becoming more common I really wish these companies would just hold off until they had the resources to release the film on UHD 4K.

As soon as Maniac 4K was announced, I called this to be next and turns out it was!

Most of these older flims don't need UHD 4k and look great on blu-ray already so why would you need 4k I can see newer films that are digitally mastered but you don't need it with older films.

For one just so I feel better about all the double dipping.

As for UHD not needed... idk man. Watch Blade Runner, Close Encounters or Ghostbusters. Most catalog titles I've seen so far have been a substantial improvement in UHD.

Kinda wish they did this and the other Fulci titles that don't already have nice restorations out. But hey, nice to see that North America will have a nice copy finally

Lots of ifs and buts here, as the Arrow remaster from the OCN is already stunning. They should just licence that and get on with doing something with the Fulci titles that are crying out for a remaster.
