‘Re-Animator: Limited Edition’ Coming August 8th from Arrow Video

Reanimator: Limited Edition (Arrow Video)I’ll never forget the first time Elliott Miller and I saw Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator. We were high school kids, thoroughly vested in playing the Call of Cthulhu RPG, when we saw a newspaper ad (remember those?) for a film based on a H.P. Lovecraft tale so we immediately made plans to hit the theater. We certainly enjoyed the splatter, humor, and nudity filled thrill ride – even though the movie is really only loosely based on the Herbert West Re-Animator novella – and became life long fans of Jeffrey Combs that night!

Now Arrow Video is releasing a limited edition of the cult horror classic on Blu-ray. Two Blu-rays in fact and each is chock full of extras and goodies. Re-Animator: Limited Edition arrives in stores August 8th and carries an MSRP of $39.99.

From Arrow Video:

HERBERT WEST HAS A GOOD HEAD ON HIS SHOULDERS… AND ANOTHER ONE ON HIS DESK. 

One of the most wildly popular horror movies of all-time, Stuart Gordon’s enduring splatter-comedy classic Re-Animator returns to Blu-ray in a stunning restoration packed with special features!

When medical student Dean Cain advertises for a roommate, he soon finds one in the form of Dr. Herbert West. Initially a little eccentric, it some becomes clear that West entertains some seriously outlandish theories – specifically, the possibility of re-animating the dead. It’s not long before Dean finds himself under West’s influence, and embroiled in a serious of ghoulish experiments which threaten to go wildly out of control…

Based on H.P. Lovecraft’s classic terror tale Herbert West – Reanimator and featuring a standout performance from Jeffrey Combs as the deliciously deranged West, Re-Animator remains the ground-zero of ’80s splatter mayhem and one of the genre’s finest hours.
