Dead Alive (Braindead) Blu-ray

Posted July 13, 2011 01:53 PM by Matthew Smith

Lionsgate FilmsOne of Peter Jackson's earliest directing efforts, Dead Alive (also known as Braindead outside of North America) has been confirmed for Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate. The film is one of the highlights of Jackson's splatter period and is often credited as one of the goriest fright movies of all time.

The film focuses on Lionel (Timothy Balm), whose mother (Elizabeth Moody, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring) is bitten by a Sumatran rat-monkey and transformed into a flesh eating zombie. Lionel is then left with the task of stopping his mother and the rest of the townsfolk that have been infected.

Technical specifications and special features for Dead Alive have yet to be confirmed. The film will hit retail just in time for Halloween on October 4th. A SRP of $19.98 has been set.

I hope they'll include the cut footage and maybe some behind the scenes/FX stuff. The Lionsgate DVD copy I have is bare bones. Same goes for Bad Taste. And Meet the Feebles. Release those, while you're at it.

Great news. I was hoping this would be the "Braindead" cut and not the unrated "Dead Alive" though. Even still, it's always been one of my favorites. A great campy gorefest.

Yup, drop "Dead Alive" and give us the long cut. I don't care what Peter Jackson thinks is the best cut, the longest one has some hilarious bits.

There are basically three cuts, from long to short: original cut, US unrated and US R-rated. PJ fancies the US unrated one.

I will buy it even if it's the shortened American version, but seamless branching between the original theatrical cut and the American would be ideal.

One of the funniest movies I've seen . I really need the European cut though as it is probably the one I've seen living in France!

Come on, this is good news, but "Dead Alive" my arse, let's have a proper full-length release of "Braindead"!

I thought Peter Jackson was remastering Bad Taste, Meet the Feebles and Braindead. I think I'll wait for these. Also, don't want the Dead Alive cut, much prefer the UK Braindead cut

We are one step closer to Meet The Feebles on Blu-ray. Braindead please don't be rated R.
