Check Out Arrow’s Crazy ‘Re-Animator’ Blu-ray Set; Coming in July

You probably already own at least one or two copies of Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator, but you might get the urge to double (or triple) dip when you see what Arrow’s got in store for us.

On July 25th, the enduring splatter-comedy classic from 1985 returns to Blu-ray in a stunning restoration jam packed with special features. Arrow Video’s 2-disc limited edition set, a US-only release, contains 2K restorations of both the Unrated and “Integral” versions of the film. The must-own release, housed in digipack packaging with brand new art by Justin Erickson, also includes a collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film by writer Michael Gingold and the original 1991 comic book adaptation of Re-Animator, reprinted in its entirety.

    This will be mine!!!

  • Munchie

    Already purchased it and it’s not even out yet.

    I’ve got the Hellraiser and House box sets from Arrow and they are absolutely top notch.

    They are basically the Criterion Collection of horror.

    • Munchie

      Does the Hellraiser set have H3 unrated, if such a cut even exists?

      • It does, though the re-inserted scenes are taken from the LaserDisc release, so the image quality during those portions is sub-par.

  • Benny Larsen

    So this is basically the second sight uk version from arrow us? The second sight version says sourced from a new 4k master,and this says from a new 2k master,oh well,it matters not as they are all 1080p

  • Oh man, the cover art is gorgeous!
