View Full Version : Which version of Zombie will you be buying?

08-01-2004, 06:32 PM
Anchor Bay has had two Region 1 stabs at Lucio Fulci's undead opus, ZOMBIE, and now Blue Underground and Shriek Show will have their hand in releasing DVDs for the film. There are a lot of discs out there, which one will make it in your collection?

Can't be picky over here so I get whatever I can find first at the next con.

08-01-2004, 07:43 PM
already got the BU version.

08-01-2004, 08:28 PM
i too have the bu version and the anchor bay collectors edition vhs and i will probably get the ss version too

08-01-2004, 08:43 PM
I pre-ordered SS.

08-01-2004, 08:55 PM
Arrr. I've already bought the one from Anchor Bay ;)

08-01-2004, 10:27 PM
I bought the BU version and seriously doubt I will spring for the SS one.

Well, I bought the 2nd Anchor Bay edition, the one that reads LUCIO FULCI COLLECTION ZOMBIE on the cover, in 2002.

Last week I have bought the Blue Undergound Version, it has 6 audio options English (5.1, 2.0 & 1.0) and Italian (5.1, 2.0 & 1.0) but it loses the Audio Commentary and the 4-page booklet from the Anchor Bay previous edition, so I'm gonna keep both of them.

Both versiones, have very few extras, the trailers are not interesting, the commentary is ok, and the BU Version has some nice collection of posters, pictures, lobby cards.

Plus both editions have different posters on the covers, so it's nice to have them both.

I'm also gonna buy the SS edition because of the extras, I hope they're worthy, and again the SS will have a third different cover, so it will be really nice to have them all.

It's not like you have the same thing three times, there are differences. :-)

hrm i'll probably end up sticking with my AB disc... maybe, *MAYBE* i'll get the SS edition

08-02-2004, 02:43 AM
I pre-ordered the SS version, but if the A/V doesn't measure up to BU's, I may end up having to get both.

08-02-2004, 06:29 AM
I'm planning on getting Shriek Show's version.

08-02-2004, 06:34 AM
Got the BU and I'm sticking with it. Don't see any point in owning both, but okay. Oh, this is also because I'm tired of SS and their pushbacks.

08-04-2004, 09:53 PM
Going with the SS version. I really don't understand people being so impatient about this. Like many of you - I've waited for years to upgrade my Anchor Bay disc (their 1st Zombie release), kept tabs on Shriek Show's progress, became amused and intrigued when I found out about SS and BU releasing Zombie DVDs on the same day, and yet through all this and more - I don't mind waiting a little longer for SS's dvd. Am I missing something? Maybe I'm just not a big enough fan of the movie?

08-04-2004, 10:04 PM
The SS does look enticing, and at $15, I might get it, but not for a couple months. I have the BU disc that my mom bought me to hold me off and there is plenty of other things I need to get first.

08-04-2004, 10:07 PM
I've already bought the BU version and will definitely be getting the SS version as well... it looks beautiful from the photos I've seen.

08-04-2004, 10:34 PM
I'll pick-up the SS version, then pick-up the BU uber disk next year. :banana:

Here are some pics of my newest (and too expensive) prize. :banana:

I've gotta start unsubscribing to this thread. :(

I'm keeping my BU disk because I like the video quality better than the SS release (it's all subjective though). The SS transfer seems to be over-saturated resulting in a loss of detail and un-natural flesh tones (my opionion and personal preference only). Don't get me wrong though, the SS disc looks amazing. I love the packaging and the extras look awesome. I'm just not into that kinda thing (for this movie anyways).

08-05-2004, 04:59 AM
I was going to get the SS version also but I thought about it and have decided against it. I like the packaging but all it will do is sit on the shelf and I agree the BU transfer looks a little better so I'll just stick with the BU one.

Planning on getting the shriek version .

08-09-2004, 06:56 AM
Ordered the SS version from Best Buy for $14.99 with free shipping. :D

08-09-2004, 11:14 AM
I have both versions of Zombi, BU and SS.

08-09-2004, 11:26 AM
My Shriek-disc shipped last friday.

08-09-2004, 03:03 PM
I'm not getting any one of those discs. I've got the Dutch release which includes the soundtrack and the laserdisc by Roan which look very nice. Two versions is enough for me. I'd get the Shriek disc if I didn't have the movie allready though.

08-12-2004, 10:17 PM
I ended up getting the AB disk for $10. I'll probably not get either of the others.

08-12-2004, 10:20 PM
:p I'm getting both. They're well-priced discs and I ain't no cheapskate when it comes to my Zombie! :p

I wanted to get the SS version, but no Best Buy in my area carried it, so I ended up getting the BU version today. Oh well, I can do without the extras.

08-12-2004, 10:22 PM
I got the SS disc.

EDIT TO ADD: the best part was that I ordered it a bestbuy.com and it was shipped from musicland. this was the 1st time for this.

08-16-2004, 05:46 PM
anyone here hear about this:


did anyone notice this? I haven't gotten around to the disc yet so I don't know.
