Okay! I got lucky and bought the Millennium version for a little less than $20 at Half.com, so my quest is over. Thanks for the warnings about the 30th Anniversary edition...whew! That was too close as I had almost placed a bid on eBay for one of those! Yikes!

You done the right thing and you won't be dissapointed. The Millienium version of the film is top-notch, come to think of it, any of Elite's Millienium edition disc's are great (Re-Animator and I Spit On Your Grave pop to mind).

Is the transfer on the ME a massive difference over the first Elite edition? I'm not a huge fan and I'd rather not have to upgrade as I thought the first transfer was very good.


Also, with the Dawn of the Dead remake coming, maybe we should go over all the Dead films and then sticky this for awhile?

Never saw the original DVD or any of the others but the ME looks fantastic!!! The film has never ever looked better...even when it was in theaters...

No, I think it is slightly better... with a few more extras... but no major reason to upgrade from the initial Elite. They're very similar.

I was just looking at this last night when I was browsing around looking for the definitive version of Re-animator. I'm going to pick this up too!

The Digital Bits claims that the video on the ME edition is the same as the one used in the first Elite edition. They did, however, add a DD 5.1 track and a few extras that were only on their laserdisc release.

Just wondering, is this version at DDD a re-release of the Millennium Edition? The features look the same.

The listed UPC is different, so I don't know... interesting.

This is the Millennium Edition. The UPC is identical to the one I own.

That's dirt cheap for the ME.

Considering that I paid $24.99 for my copy, yes, it is dirt cheap.

The description makes it sound like it's the Elite edition that came out before the ME edition. The one that doesn't have the 5.1 sound, the Duane Jones interview, or the stuff about "Vanilla".

Well, it doesn't preclude those things. At any rate, the UPC is the overriding factor.

Why would DDD have separate listings for the ME edition, with one being cheaper? That makes no sense.

Well I am completely confused. The link provided above shows no picture. However DDD also has another version HERE that is the Millennium Ed. Different UPC numbers. Is is possible they are the same with different UPC numbers?

So if you guys were buying which would you get?

That has the same UPC code. I would order the one that has the picture and says Millennium Edition.

Just read this over at Creature Corner:
What's this? A colorized version of Night of the Living Dead? You got that right. Love the idea or hate it, it's coming to DVD in a ballsy maneuver from the San Diego-based Off Color Films.

According to their site the disc's release will come this Halloween and include a restored black & white print and a new "colorized" version of the '68 classic that, in its original incarnation, still managed to shock audiences back in the day despite its lack of color.

Mystery Science Theater 3000's Mike Nelson lends an audio commentary to Off Color's presentation as well as a how-to guide to concocting and drinking numerous "zombies." Cute.
Looks like the same group that handled the newly released Reefer Madness in color. The only good thing I see from this is a Mike Nelson commentary

According to VIDEO STORE MAGAZINE (a magazine specifically for people working in the video store business and/or video production/marketing), the Millennium edition is still in no danger of going out of print. The company just paid for a huge full-page ad of it listing it as available for order! Good news for all whom haven't picked it up yet!
