    Hi,

    There is no version of "Dawn Of The Dead" available in the UK, that has DTS. For reasons unknown, it was dropped from the disc at the last minute.

    I am guessing that you are talking about the new 2003 version, and not the George Romero classic from 1978, yes?!

    Also, the new version of the film has two editions out: the original cinema release at 95 minutes, and the longer, gorier "Director's Cut". Both are out now, and available, with identical extras. However, neither has DTS souundtrack. The "Director's Cut" lasts 104 minutes! So there's a lot of extra footage, and most of it is supposedly stuff that was considered too gory for cinemas! Having said that, I'm not sure if I believe that entirely!

    Actually I think that dvdmike007 does mean the original. Saw it it Asda where it did clearly mark DTS soundtrack but having not bought it can not confirm.
    It was about a fiver if i remember correctly.

    There appear to be 3 UK versions of the remake
    I have the UK 2004 version labelled "RENTAL ONLY" 95 mins
    It has no extras at all, just the movie and scene index. AVOID THIS VERSION.
