    This year saw the release and re-release of many of DVD's most requested horror titles. The three-years-in-progress DAWN OF THE DEAD DVD from Anchor Bay, the FRIDAY THE 13TH box set from Paramount as well as a wealth of new horror like THE TEXAS CHAINSAW and DAWN remakes, GOTHIKA and THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT. There is a ton to choose from, and I am sure I will be missing plenty, but of the list which was your favorite overall release of the year?

    I voted for the F13 box but I still haven't seen either of the new Dawn discs yet. (For shame!) Soon though.

    Dawn of the Dead was definitely the best DVD set of 2004 for me. The Videodrome Criterion was a close second.

    Tons of great movies to choose from but i went with the dawn of the dead (1978)

    There are lots of good ones in there, but none come close to the glory of the Dawn of the Dead set. It goes to show that while it was not a good year for horror movies, 2004 was a great year for horror dvds.

    It's a tie between the Dawn set and Bride of Frank.

    Without a doubt, Dawn of the Dead 78. The most definitive dvd set yet, period!! Zombi 2 was an amazing transfer, but the extras did nothing for me. I also adored Cabin Fever and Dawn of the Dead 2004. I'm sure the Friday boxed set is awesome, but I haven't gotten it yet.

    It was a great year for horror DVD's. The best thing is, you can now get all three Romero zombie flicks with killer transfers. For 2004 my favorite is a tie between Dawn of the Dead Ultimate & Shawn of the Dead. I think both are great and I honestly can't decide between the two.

    Has to be the DAWN UE---it's been eagerly awaited for way too long.

    Second would probably go to VIDEODROME.

    I liked the releases of DAWN (2004), the TCM remake, and BUBBA HO-TEP also.

    I dug the THRILLER disc as far as how the disc was put together but the movie just didn't do much for me.

    Videodrome all the way. Criterion pleased me to no end with that release.
