UNFILMABLE.COM (http://unfilmable.blogspot.com/2011/09/re-animator-coming-to-blu-ray.html): "According to Scream Queen Barbara Crampton, via twitter, a Re-Animator Blu-ray is about six months out! There are no details currently, but the heads-up came from producer Brian Yuzna..."

I PM'd Brian Yuzna on facebook, and lo and behold he actually graced me with a reply, telling me he thinks Image will be the ones putting this out in January.

Can you believe I still have the Elite edition? Hope this is cheap. And loaded with all the extras the Anchor Bay edition has.

There's a German Blu-ray release coming in May apparantly (http://www.bluray-disc.de/blu-ray-filme/demnaechst?id=2012-05). Hopefully a domestic one isn't far behind?

A pre-order link appeared on Amazon.ca (http://www.amazon.ca/Re-Animator-Blu-ray/dp/B008CYDDWI?SubscriptionId=AKIAIY4YSQJMFDJATNBA&tag=bluraycom0c-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B008CYDDWI&m=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB) the other day with a release date of 9/4/12 coming from a company called Paradox, who are apparantly a Canadian distributor and may not necessarily be the studio behind the release.

Yes they are a distributing company, they do it for almost every labels here.

I'm thinking I will be picking up the Second Sight UK bd (set?). Sounding like it'll be RE-ANIMATOR, BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR, FROM BEYOND, and SOCIETY (would rather see DOLLS included instead of SOCIETY).

Ian Jane
06-28-2012, 01:09 PM
I'll wait for details on both versions before making a decision - but are you sure it's The Beyond and not From Beyond?

RE-ANIMATOR...still a childhood favorite for me....my jaw was literally on the floor when watching this one...came out in a great year for horror films too!

And Brian Yuzna is great, met him a couple of times..always full of enthusiasm so not surprised he replied to your facebook message.

Hope so too....How long since they made any new extras for this movie??....Can't be TOO hard to rope in the main actors (who are still alive obviously).....I am sure most of htem have some free time on their hands these days...:funny:

Ian Jane
06-30-2012, 12:07 PM
Honestly, yeah, new extras would be great but the last two SE's had a ton of stuff on them. I'm not sure what else there is to cover. Maybe a featurette on the Lovecraft connection or something would be cool.

sukebanboy
06-30-2012, 12:22 PM
Actually you are probably right...I think they have already made all the extras they could possibly make for this movie already......

Robert W

Combs seems to be keeping himself pretty busy. Don't know if Abbot is still acting though, and Gale has passed on. Crampton still seems to have plenty of interesting enjoyable things still to say though.

Jens Thomsen

Definitely prefer the new cover to the old one. The old one is boring. The new one, taken from the B-style poster, is magnificent.

But I'll wait to see the first comparison between this and the UK release before I bite.

sukebanboy
07-20-2012, 09:07 AM
BORING????

Boring???

The old one has...

Herbert West in his white "mad doctor" coat
The syringe full of the re-agent
Dr Hills head on a desk
Dr Hill's Headless body behind ready to attack
Beautiful day-glo Green colors...

The new one has

Dr Hill's head and Herbert West releasing some aromatherapy concoction into the air....Bleugh!

I'm a sucker for painted/drawn poster art.

Image just sent out the official press release, which confirms the extras that are being included and which also confirms that the painted cover art posted earlier in the thread is set:

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, William J. Norris and Stuart Gordon from the H.P. Lovecraft short story, Re-Animator tells the strange tale of medical student Dan Cain (Bruce Abbot) 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!

Bonus features for the Re-Animator Blu-ray™ include:
Documentary: “Re-Animator Resurrectus”
Audio Commentary by Director Stuart Gordon
Audio Commentary by Producer Brian Yuzna and Actors Bruce Abbott, Jeffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton and Robert Sampson
Interview with Director Stuart Gordon and Producer Brian Yuzna
Interview with Writer Dennis Paoli

Uhhhh... this is going to suck if the superior 86 minute unrated version is not included.

John Bernhard
07-24-2012, 09:26 PM
So that threw me too...I saw this first run in the suburbs....unrated.
So I checked the MPAA site....thinking R rated was cut or for home video purposes ( ie: never R rated in theaters )
but the MPAA says
3572
So it seems R is uncut? Whadda you think?
When films are re rated the site clearly lists both and the dates for each.
I have never seen a listing like this before...re ratings I understand ( edits ) but surrendered ....hmmm.

Jimmy Simard
07-24-2012, 10:22 PM

No idea, but my old Millenium Edition say non-rated and run for 86 minutes. Maybe it's an error in the Blu-Ray listing as the commentary are the same :dunno:

Bah! Still waiting for that promised UK BD with a new transfer...

Ignatius
08-20-2013, 09:32 AM
The UK releases from Second Sight have been pushed back to 2014, but the new transfer they'll be using was created by a German company who are bringing out their Blu-Ray at the end of September. Kentai did a pretty good breakdown of their release here (http://www.kentaiblog.com/2013/08/re-animating-stuart-gordon-classic.html).

Based on the specs they've released it looks like their extra features mostly duplicate those from the Image and Elite editions, the big bonus is their inclusion of the entire R-rated alternate cut in SD along with something they call the 'integral cut' which basically splices all the extra footage from the TV version into the regular cut. They've also managed to get the film off the German index of harmful material which means you can buy it from Amazon.

The work in progress stills that have been released (http://www.kentaiblog.com/2012/12/re-animated-opticals.html) of their scans look vastly superior to what was on the Image disc.

As far as I can tell it comes down to getting the German disc this year and getting the R-rated cut as a bonus, or waiting for the (probably cheaper) UK disc next year with the same transfer which may have some brand new special features in the works.

Both the German BD of RE-ANIMATOR and the German BD release of SOCIETY arrived today! Quite excited about digging into both of these: I held off buying the US BD of RE-ANIMATOR due to the issues with it, and SOCIETY is one of my fave US horrors of the period.

I might try that 'integral' cut of RE-ANIMATOR for my first go-round with this Blu - heresy, I know, but I've seen the film so many times before that this could make an interesting change.

The German 3-disc Blu-ray release of BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR is due at the end of February:

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61sriCeAaVL._SY300_.jpg

There's also a steelbook containing both RE-ANIMATOR and BRIDE... due on the same day. Not sure which, if any, of the extras from either release will be ported over to the steelbook, or whether they'll be barebones editions of the films alone:

Hmm... if that steelbook has the extras from the single disc releases, it shall be mine.

Didn't even realize there was a Bride Blu-ray in the works. I know it's not as good as the first one but I still like it and would be happy to upgrade on that title.

Wernski, the 'integral' cut of RE-ANIMATOR is the unrated cut with the additional scenes from the 'R' rated version included. It's not entirely necessary (I prefer the unrated version, personally) but a pretty interesting alternative version of the film regardless.

I'd possibly plump for the steel with both films in it myself, Ian, but I already bought the 3-disc release.

I'm looking forward to BRIDE. It's a pretty good film. It'll be nice to have both cuts of the film in HD. I'm not sure what extras are to be on that release, however. I'm preordering it, as I did with RE-ANIMATOR, as the 3-disc version of the first film (released in Sept/Oct) already seems to be OOP and sells for 52 Euros on Amazon.de now!

Nevertheless, I think I'm right in saying that Second Sight are still planning to release both films on BD in the UK.

All of the deleted scenes, or just some of them? Because some of the West moments, and the crazy dinner hypnosis scene, I think are great and would love them in the same film as the unrated scenes. But the fifteen minutes of Bruce Abbot and Barbara Crampton joking around in bed would be a chore... I don't think all of that footage was ever meant to be seen all together. I was thinking (or hoping?) this version was more selective/ ideal.

The integral version throws everything in and runs for 105 mins. The 94 min 'R' rated version is available as an 'easter egg'. The integral version is an interesting curio, but the unrated cut is definitive, I believe - and the presentation on the Capelight disc is stellar, way ahead of the US Blu.

However, the Second Sight disc will no doubt present a cheaper option.

Yeah, will look nice next to my German Re-animator media book. I pre-ordered it together with the German limited edition release of Trick or Treat. Don't know about the latter, but I figure I better order it now because it's limited to only 1500 copies, and if I don't care for it, I should always be able to sell it off again.

I broke down and imported the big German 3-disc set. Picture looked great (of course), but thought I'd add the integral version is pretty great. Yeah, the Bruce and Barbara scene in bad does go on too long in the beginning; but after that, I think it's the definitive version of the film for me; and it all cut together seamlessly.

Paul L
03-04-2014, 05:26 AM
The Caplight BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR Blu is gorgeous. It's by far the best presentation of this film that I've seen (although I never owned the US DVD). Just one minor issue: the English mono track (the only English audio option) is a little frustrating - it's flat, seeming to lack dynamic range, and with a lot of background hiss. This is clearly an issue with the elements rather than with Capelight's presentation of the film. But regardless of this, it's a spectacular package.

EDIT: Flicking through the booklet, it seems there's a page devoted to the issues in restoring the audio track for the unrated version. I'll have to sit down with it this evening and see if I can translate it.

More on the Second Sight release:

We've been asked if we are doing any of our own restoration work on RE-ANIMATOR. The answer is yes, with a focus on the vertical lines. To follow is a short before and after example which gives a flavour of the work done. A word from Simon Marbrook, Head of Restoration at Premier who did the work for us:

The vertical scratches are probably the trickiest film artefact to repair and this is generally because the scratches in this case were static over a number frames, restoration is a lot easier if a fault moves around enabling the operator to use other frames to repair the faulty frame. The other problem with these scratches were that the scratches would move just a few pixels after a few frames so any automated tool set would need to incorporate a larger pixel radius for an auto repair, this process would greater enhance the risk of digital artefacts so I took the decision to manually correct the majority of the scratches frame by frame.
I have used MTI correct to remove the vertical scratches , using it’s scratch tool in both its auto mode and where artefacts were created by the auto filter, using its manual settings for more detail. Where the scratch removal was too harsh I then used the DRS system in a frame by frame solution to remove as many scratches as possible without creating digital artefacts.

Any US members here order the German releases (or anything else) from Amazon.de? If so, how long did it take to get your order? My RE-ANIMATOR/BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR Steelbook shipped on the 10th of March and it isn't here yet and I was wondering how much longer I should wait before contacting them?

Wait one week after the last day of estimated arrival (that should be on your order confirmation email) and then contact them. They've been late a couple of times and I've done this and then wound up with free extra copies.

Hmm, the last day of the estimated arrival was the 25th of March, so it has been over a week past the last day. I'll give them til Monday, that'll be 4 weeks since they shipped it, and if it isn't here, I'll contact them.

Last time I ordered from Amazon.de it took almost six weeks for my package to arrive via DHL.

I've experienced similar things with stuff shipped from US Amazon to the UK (and wound up with extra copies that I should probably have returned but1 never did) which sometimes take six or so weeks to cross the Atlantic. (Then again, just this week I had a parcel arrive from Amazon US in less than a week, via the same shipping method I always use, which is to say the cheapest.)On the other hand, a package from amazon.de takes exactly three days to arrive on my doorstep in the UK, faster than a lot of etailers within the UK. I'm sure if Derrick emails them, they'll sort it out.

Ouch, I'm in California, so maybe I should wait and email them if it isn't here by the 28th (7 weeks.) I think the few times I've ordered from Amazon.co.uk have spoiled me as my orders have gotten here in like 10 days.

No need to be so nice Derrick. Seriously - just email them. They'll send out a replacement at this point. You may very well wind up with an extra copy. They certainly factor that in when they do their business write-ups and cost projections. This isn't Diabolik.

Last time I ordered from amazon.de, it got here quicker than my order from amazon.ca.....4 days vs. 6.

I've never ordered from Amazon.de before but I've had orders late from Amazon.co.uk by just a few days and they've replaced AND refunded my orders. Amazing service, much better than we get in Canada.

I mentioned this in the "So what'd you get lately" thread, but I contacted Amazon.de and they shipped me as second copy that got here in 12 days. The first shipment is, apparently, lost to the ages.

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.

That's good news. The last time I watched the film on dvd I thought I should upgrade to Blu but never got around to it despite it being cheap so I'll pick this up, most likely.

Watching the film that last time, I didn't remember a lot of it so I was surprised that the violence & gore was so extreme. It's great that the film still holds up after all these years.

My pre-order from Deep Discount was cancelled this morning so I ordered from DiabolikDVD whom say the warehouse is out of stock so they may not be able to re-stock so, I guess, that means the lim. ed. is almost sold out. I've got my fingers crossed my order gets filled. I sold my dvd to a friend (the release with the syringe).

Umbrella is releasing all 3 films on Blu-ray in June.

19980

"Prepare yourselves this June for an onslaught of mad science and the living dead as Umbrella Entertainment rolls out all three classic RE-ANIMATOR films on Blu-ray!

Leading the charge is our 2-disc collector's edition of Stuart Gordon’s seminal RE-ANIMATOR - including both the theatrical and integral cuts of the film, along with a bevy of special features.

Following that up is the undead double feature of BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR, and in a world-first on Blu-Ray, BEYOND RE-ANIMATOR. Directed by Brian ‘Society’ Yuzna, and featuring genre icon Jeffrey Combs returning in the titular role, 'Bride of' and 'Beyond' continue the gore-soaked insanity of the original. Including the unrated and r-rated cuts of 'Bride of Re-Animator' and a collection of great extras, horror and Lovecraft fans are not going to want to miss this!

I rember being underwhelmed by Beyond. Might get it if there's a cheap stand alone release, but not going to double dip on Bride just for this.

Is Beyond the film that takes place in a prison? I"ve only seen it cut on cable. Some of the gore was pretty extreme but seems like some was also very goofy...? Nudity was cut or blurred (SyFy or Chiller channel; stupid cable provider changed Chiller to a fucking Olympic sports channel!).

Dish dropped it sometime last year. I went to see what was up and saw Universal was shutting the channel down last fall.I hadn't watched much on Chiller in a bit. But my father ended up watching it often. He switched over to El Rey once Chiller was gone.

There's a new 'serious' version of Reanimator by Ivan Zuccon that's just turned up on UK Amazon Prime, but the fucking subs stop after the titles! Looks very cheap but intersting. I hope they sort the issue.
