Scream Factory has announced a Collector’s Edition of George A. Romero’s Land of the Dead (2005), the film that ushered in Romero’s second wave of zombie flicks. Land captures the humor, social satire, and sense of dread of Romero’s earlier Dead movies, so it is easily a “must own.”
Here’s the full announcement from Scream Factory’s Facebook page:
