[versions] Best looking transfer of Dawn of the Dead (1978)?
Which 4K and 1080p transfer is the best looking out of all of these releases? I'm planning to do my own recreation of the extended "Mall Hours" cut with the newer transfers.

from DVDCompare:

The UK release has all three cuts with 4K mastering, supervised by the cinematographer from the original camera negative (but different to the French and Italian releases), original mono audio, and a large selection of exclusive extras. The limited edition has paper extras and CD soundtracks while the standard edition only includes the feature discs and bonus disc.

The German Limited Special Edition" has all three cuts and some exclusive extras but not all are English-friendly. The VHS-Retro edition has some exclusive extras but only the Argento cut.

The French release has a 4K master supervised by the cinematographer with vastly different timing and framing from the Italian 4K master (see caps-a-holic comparison) and an exclusive English-language commentary.- The Italian set has exclusive extras.

I think the general opinion is that the Second Sight release from the UK blows every other edition out of the water

Second sight, no question

Dawn of the Dead and Second Sight's BR & 4K releases are hands down the best ever made.
Using either of them to create your "Mall Hours" version will give you the absolute best results.
