Topic: Dawn of the Dead -- The "Suspiria" Cut!
Many, many years ago I read about an altered version of Romero's Dawn of the Dead which aired somewhere in Japan. Supposedly, that version, which allegedly used Dario Argento's European cut as its jumping off point -- not only edited out even more footage than Argento's cut, but it also altered much of the soundtrack (reportedly including bits and pieces of the soundtrack from Argento's Suspiria, hence "the Suspiria Cut") and replaced all the sound effects, AND added a tag at the beginning of the film attempting to explain the zombie epidemic. Supposedly this version aired once, and ONLY once, and has never been seen again since.
I never really knew whether or not to believe such a print existed, but apparently IT DOES. And to prove it, here are a few clips (following an article basically reiterating what I wrote above).
And here I thought I'd seen every version of the film there was to see. Too bad they didn't included this one on the US Ultimate Dawn set.
