On September 4th, Image Entertainment resurrects one of the greatest horror films ever made with the Blu-ray debut of Stuart Gordon's cult classic H.P. Lovecraft's Re-Animator. Presented in a brand-new 1080p HD transfer approved by producer Brian Yuzna, the 1985 shocker was ranked #32 of 50 on EW's "Top 50 Cult Films," inspired two sequels as well as an award-winning stage musical!
Featuring high-resolution DTS-HD audio and packed with bonus features, the Re-Animator Blu-ray hits retail with an SRP of $17.97. Also available on DVD for an SRP of $9.98. Pre-book for both is August 7th.
Adapted by Dennis Paoli, Dennis Paoli and Stuart Gordon from the H.P. Lovecraft short story, Re-Animator tells the strange tale of medical student Dan Cain (Bruce Abbott) and his girlfriend Megan Halsey (Barbara Crampton), both of them drawn to odd new student Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) who's conducting secret experiments involving the re-animation of dead tissue. When one of the instructors, Dr. Carl Hill (David Gale), stumbles upon their activities, West murders him -- but is brought back to life, now thirsting for revenge as well as lusting after Megan. The final denouement features the re-animated Dr. Hill squaring off against Herbert and Dan in a battle royale within the school's morgue, complete with resurrected "henchmen" and undoubtedly one of the greatest visual double entendres in all horror cinema!

- Audio Commentary by Director Stuart Gordon
- Interview with Writer Dennis Paoli
- Interview with Composer Richard Band
