The horror comedy sequel is coming to Blu-ray in October.
In an early announcement to retailers, Arrow Video is preparing 'Bride of Re-Animator' for Blu-ray on October 18.
The success of Stuart Gordon's hit horror-comedy Re-animator meant that a sequel was all but inevitable. The resulting follow-up, Bride of Re-animator this time helmed by director Brian Yuzna (Society, Return of the Living Dead III) would prove that there was a good deal more life (and death) left in the story of Dr Herbert West and his ghoulish exploits. It has been eight months since the bloody massacre at the Miskatonic medical school. Unperturbed by the disastrous outcome of his previous meddling with the dead, Dr West (again played by Jeffrey Combs) continues his research into the phenomenon of re-animation; only this time, he plans to create life starting with the heart of his young protégé Dan's dearly deceased, Meg Halsey. Surely nothing could go wrong? With special effects master Screaming Mad George (the man behind the infamous "shunting" sequence of Society) on hand to contribute a host of characteristically weird and wonderful creations, Bride of Re-animator is a more than worthy successor to Stuart Gordon's original cult classic.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, an LPCM 2.0 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Brand new audio commentary with Brian Yuzna; Audio Commentary with Brian Yuzna, star Jeffrey Combs, visual effects supervisor Tom Rainone and the effects team including John Carl Buechler, Mike Deak, Robert Kurtzman, Howard Berger and Screaming Mad George; Audio Commentary with stars Jeffrey Combs and Bruce Abbott; Brian Yuzna Remembers Bride of Re-animator brand new featurette in which the director looks back at the making of the first Re-animator sequel; Splatter Masters: The Special Effects Artists of Bride of Re-animator brand new FX featurette with a wealth of behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with Robert Kurtzman of KNB, Screaming Mad George, Tony Doublin and John Carl Buechler; Getting Ahead in Horror archive making-of featurette; Deleted Scenes; and a Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Gary Pullin.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
