The new Second Sight UK Blu-Ray of Return Of The Living Dead is fixing some fairly glaring issues the the previous US masters that had many fans, and Dan O’Bannon himself, upset. Did you know that Tar-Man’s voice had been re-dubbed? Same thing with the “send more cops” zombie. And some of those great 80’s punk metal songs are either lowered in the mix or have their length truncated. In addition, the Blu will also include the recent (and really good) documentary More Brains: A Return To The Living Dead.
Per Second Sight, “The dead have risen and they need more ‘BRAINS’! Dan O’Bannon’s cult splatterfest The Return Of The Living Dead is one of the definitive zombie movies and one of the classic horror films of the 80s.
Now this horror favourite is being released on 4 June 2012 courtesy of Second Sight as a special edition double DVD and makes its UK Blu-ray debut in a limited edition Steelbook, both with five hours of special features and also the much anticipated inclusion of the original soundtrack as well as the remixed version.”
It’s available here from Amazon. Head inside for full specs and artwork. Be aware that it is Region B locked. So if you don’t like in the UK make sure you have a multi-region player.
