More zombies and “more brains!” are shambling into our factory this Summer! We’re super excited to report today that the highly-requested undead sequel RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD PART II is (finally) coming to Blu-ray!! Here are the early details we have at present time:

• This will be branded as a “Collector’s Edition” that will come with a slipcover (guaranteed for three months after its original release date). U.S. and Canada territories (Region A).

• The newly-commissioned artwork pictured comes to us from Graham Humphreys (who also illustrated our original ROTLD cover back in 2016). This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will the original theatrical poster design.

• Extras and specs are still in progress and will be announced later in early July. However, we can confirm today that we will be doing a brand-new HD film transfer and will be correcting the soundtrack issues that were present on the previous DVD release.

• National street date is planned for August 14th. However, if you pre-order now for early shipping directly from us @ https://www.shoutfactory.com/…/return-of-the-living-dead-pa… you will also receive an 18' x 24" rolled poster of the newly-commissioned art. We’ll be only be producing 1,000 of the posters so act fast!

The horror begins again as mysterious barrels bounce off an Army transport as it passes through a new housing development and land near an abandoned cemetery. Mischievous neighborhood boys discover the barrels and open them, unaware of the evil contained within. A deadly green vapor escapes and turns the living into flesh-eating zombies and causes the dead to rise from their graves. As these hideous living dead hunt down the fresh human brains they need, man is pitted against man, and the living against the dead. It is a macabre struggle for survival!

I've only seen this once or perhaps twice, back on its first VHS release in the UK (in '89/'90, I'd guess), and I remember it to be utter shite, but I have a strong hankering after Scream Factory's Blu-ray release. I'll cave and buy it at some point, I reckon.

I'm an unapologetic fan of this widely-hated sequel. It's one of the first movies I owned (a used Beta copy) and I watched it at least a dozen times when I was a kid. This one and DEAD HEAT are two flicks from '88 that everyone seems to hate but I fucking adore.

I fondly remember watching this on TV as a kid and loving it. Still do. Even have the one sheet hanging on my wall!
