This was released in 1985, the heyday of the ubiquitous UZI 9mm smg. There's several carried by the main actors. Beautifully efficient design. Compact, and ergonomic. However, it weighs about 9 Lbs.. It's like a cinder block around your neck and won't really do much more than a handy 9mm pistol. Its the same ammo. Full auto with a 32 rnd magazine translates to 10 perfect 3rnd bursts + 2. Keep it on semi. and drop 32 zombies. Very reliable weapon. There's also standard Viet Nam era M16's. But the real "gun stars" are Col. Rhodes pair of S&W Model 629's with Pachmayr neoprene grips, carried in shoulder holsters. The "6" is Smith and Wesson Company code for stainless steel. These are classic "N" frame S&W .44 Caliber revolvers, with 6 or 6 1/2" bbl. Good for intimidation. good for dropping as many as 12 zombies. Slower to reload than an auto like the Beretta 9mm which would drop as many as 16 to 20 zombies depending on mag. capacity before reloading.

In the UK, George A. Romero's Zombie-Classic was released in a shortened version by 4 Front Video (only the first edition) as well as Entertainment - approx. 1 min. is missing in these versions. All the other UK VHS and DVD releases are uncut. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.

In Japan, two different versions were released. The VHS and Laserdisc by Tohokushinsha / Toei Video were surprisingly only cut in one small scene, whereas harder footage in other places was left in its place. See a comparison for that release here. The Laserdisc by JVD Laservision, on the other hand, was cut in basically all of the violence scenes by six minutes and additionally outlawed in 1996. A detailed comparison for that release can be found here.
