In addition to the cuts included on this set, Dawn of the Dead has been available on bootlegs of varying length, the most notable of which is a “complete” cut which includes all available footage from existent cuts, which are, again, numerous, due to the results censors have imposed on the film in different countries.

 DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978) - DIVIMAX DVD
The common reading of 1978's Dawn of the Dead has it as a satire of this consumerist wonderland, with its zombies wandering around a new-for-the-time shopping centre, and indeed, writer-director George A. Romero is prescient for his discomfort with the burgeoning phenomena of shopping malls.
Overlong and underfed, Dawn of the Dead's place in the canon seems assured by dint of it being a film in a disreputable genre that wallows in its grue while presenting a few clear satirical jabs at broad targets.
In fact, the most fascinating sequence of Dawn of the Dead is the climactic biker invasion, not for its embarrassment of gore effects (and pie-in-the-face silliness), but for the sense of proprietary outrage that we feel for the violation of "our" mall zombies.

 TheMovieBoy Review - Dawn of the Dead (2004)
Aided by stylishly saturated cinematography by Matthew F. Leonetti (2004's "The Butterfly Effect"), who lends the picture a wide scope, and urgency-drenched editing by Niven Howie, the speed and rabid nature of the zombies raise this "Dawn of the Dead" to an unexpectedly high plateau in the annals of modern horror movies.
This new "Dawn of the Dead," even more so than its 1979 predecessor, is an unremittingly bleak motion picture, a gory, frightening portrait of what is, in essence, the end of the world.
And if he wants us to believe that the long-since dead have risen from their graves, then the film is missing any such clarification (a brief scene where Ana drives by a cemetery and witnesses the dead rising would have cleared this up, but is nowhere to be found).

 Dawn of the Dead Movie Review at Hollywood Video   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
So it is with a heavy sigh of relief and a great deal of surprise that yet another re-make, the zombie-fest Dawn of the Dead, based on George A. Romero's 1979 masterful, clever, and socially satirical cult classic, is actually impressive.

"Surviving The Dawn" is the DVD's making-of documentary, covering the movie's origins, the "mall" that the art department built (in the shell of an actual mall that was slated for demolition), the long hours of filming, and the director's take on the '79 original.

I submit that Dawn of the Dead captures more of the essence of The Stand (obviously due to synchronicity and not a conscious echo by Romero) than any Romero version of The Stand would have.
He's the joker in the deck, and also the wild card: at a certain point in a mission involving trucks, he loses his cool and forgets his bag in one of the trucks; this leads to his eventual downfall.

George Romero's original "Dawn of the Dead" had corpses again rising up from their graves to consume the flesh of the living, only this time Romero had the inspiration to set his film in a shopping mall.

 Cold Fusion Video Reviews: Dawn of the Dead
Peter realizes that they bikers are only after the loot, not the people; but when they break in (letting the still-lingering dead flood in in their wake), Steven can't help but try to defend "their" property.
I mean, they're either corpses that predate the wholesale return of the dead, or result from it; so we should see more of them in burial suits, hospital gowns, etc., or in casual clothes with giant gaping wounds (assuming that their deaths were caused by other zombies).
The closest link between Night and Dawn is the carry-over of the fl protagonist -- his colour used again to indicate his separateness from the norms of white-dominated society and his partial exemption from its constraints.
