George A. Romero's classic 1978 zombie flick Dawn of the Dead is being "dimensionalized" into stereoscopic 3D for a theatrical re-release sometime within the next 12 months. A company called In-Three will use its proprietary conversion technique to turn the film into 3D, a process which costs upwards of $50,000 to $100,000 per minute.

How do we know the German blu-ray is the In-Three conversion? It could be something else entirely, especially since the Blu-ray 3D logo is nowhere to be seen on the cover. I'd wait for reviews and region code confirmation.


Be wary of some of the German stuff; I've read reports the recent Blu-ray 3D release of "Bear" is just a horrible conversion job that doesn't work at all.


EDIT: Reviews at Amazon.de indicate the DAWN BD has an anaglyphic presentation.

Per minute?



How in the hell would it even be profitable?

Looks like they did the same thing for THE RUNNING MAN:

thought he meant the blu-ray that's being sold on the german amazon, as it was advertise as 3d blu-ray and it is an anaglyph

Not only is it anaglyph, it's ridiculously cut. Every good gag is just skipped. Very funny to watch in some parts...

Not only is it anaglyph but it's also a very strange cut of the film. Nearly all of the gory special effects have been removed. Some of the comments on Amazon.de speculate that it is a hybrid of the Romeo (U.S.) and Argento (European) cuts. It's running time of 02:01:55 places it very close to the R-Rated theatrical cut that was released as part of a double bill with Creepshow back in 1982 as hasn't been seen since.
