Re-Animator Blu-ray

Posted July 17, 2012 02:00 PM by Webmaster

Image EntertainmentImage Entertainment will release on Blu-ray Stuart Gordon's Re-Animator (1985), starring Jeffrey Combs, Bruce Abbott and Barbara Crampton. The Blu-ray will be available for purchase online and in shops across the United States on September 4th.

According to Image Entertainment's official listing, the Blu-ray release of Re-Animator will be "packed with bonus features (existing from earlier DVD releases), including audio commentaries from the film's director, producer and cast, interviews, extended scenes, galleries, and more".

Herbert West (Combs) is obsessed with the idea of bringing the dead back to life. Experimenting with a glowing green fluid, he successfully reanimates dead tissue. Unfortunately, the dead are uncontrollable and difficult to subdue. Dr. Carl Hill, West's instructor, is determined to steal his secret and take all the credit for the discovery. Herbert isn't willing to give it up so easily. No matter what the consequences are! Stylishly directed by Stuart Gordon (From Beyond), this film adaptation of the short story "Herbert West: The Reanimator" is a non-stop gore fest filled with wit and humor.

Finally, an 80s horror classic loaded with gore and campy but memorable performances comes to blu! This is one of "those films" horror fans have been waiting for! Thank you, Image!

I love this film, and am hoping against hope that this gets a great transfer. Image hasn't exactly been doing top quality stuff as of late. See: Hellraiser 1 and 2. Both looked sub-par.

Love it! Day 1. Hope the 2 sequels make it to blu some day too. This is the most memorable performance and character of the great Jeffrey Combs.

Awesomeness. But we knew about this since the pre-order went up on Amazon.ca a few weeks ago Now, let's hope Anchor Bay gets off their asses and release Phantasm once and for all or sell the title to another distributor (even Image but not Echo Bridge)!! Come on; it's the last movie I have left on my list to upgrade to Blu-ray!!

@md1985. You're right that some of Image's Midnight Madness Series have been rather subpar quality-wise. But I still have hope that this one will turn out ok. The inclusion of special features on this one is certainly a plus. And it doesn't appear to be a part of the Midnight Madness label at this point. We'll just have to wait and see I guess.

I have honestly never seen this movie before, however after watching the trailer and with the low cost I'll be picking it up day one.

I love 80's horror flicks.

@ paper tiger

You're in for a real treat; it's such a fun movie! I watched my Elite Millenium Edition 2-Disc DVD a couple weeks ago and it is still just as fun as it was back in the day

@ Ator the Invincible. I didn't even notice the absence of a Midnight Madness series label on this one until you pointed it out. My expectations just went way up, as their non MM releases still tend to be pretty good. I guess I'm still just bitter about Hellraiser II. One of my favorite movies ever, and it barely looks better than the DVD. Oh well, here's hoping we get top quality naked Barbara Crampton.

Nice. Hoping for "From Beyond" on Blu-ray as well. To paper tiger: there is one word that can be used to describe the awesomeness that is "Re-Animator". That word is "moist".

I truly hope this one has subtitles. I have the DVD release that came in the green case and it didn't have subtitles and I was never able to enjoy it without having the TV up too loud and bothering the wife.

One of my favourite horror movies of the 80's. Fingers crossed that image transfers the film to BD without unneccesary digital tinkering, meaning keep the grain and focuse on doing color and contrast right instead.

I loved this flick. It is a fun movie to watch. I remember watching it way back in the 80s. If memory serves, I believe there was a Re-Animator 2, wasn't it? Correct me if I am wrong. But this is a good movie. Day one for me.

To tell the truth, I half expected Wizard Video (currently a Full Moon Features subsidiary) to handle this one. Maybe it could've given them a chance to improve with their Blu-ray transferring skills?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I love this movie, but Image is terrible with the video/audio thing and they're probably lying and won't include any sf.

Here's hoping they will, of course, "re-animate" Picture and Sound, as well. I already own the Millennium Edition, with a sick amount of extras. So if P&A isn't good, I won't buy this one.
If they are to impress, they will have an excellent transfer from the master and take all extras from Elite's 2002 Millennium Edition plus include the "Resurrectus" documentary, previously available from the Anchor Bay release.
