Take a Look at Arrow's Epic ‘Re-Animator’ Blu-Ray Set; Coming in July

Every horror fan probably owns a copy of Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator by now, but we think this edition should be the one that’s sitting in your collection.

Since the existence of the great Arrow Video company, we have been treated to some killer horror classic releases, films that we thought would never make it on Blu-Ray format. Well, they are continuously surprising us with cool new editions of our most cherished gore films, including another epic limited edition set of 1985’s Re-Animator, a US-only set, which contains 2K restorations of both the Unrated and “Integral” versions of the film.

One more thing to mention, it also comes with a comic book adaptation of Re-Animator, the original 1991 reprinted in its entirety. The set is due to hit shelves on July 25th.

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.
