Herbert West Getting Re-Animated on Blu-ray

As if there weren’t enough upcoming Blu-ray releases to potentially break your bank account already, Image Entertainment has now announced that this September Stuart Gordon’s 1985 gleefully gory horror classic Re-Animator will be getting a digital upgrade.

The cult favorite H.P. Lovecraft tale that made Jeffrey Combs a horror icon, solidified Barbara Crampton’s status as one of the 80’s leading scream queens, and gave new meaning to the term “giving head” thanks to the late David Gale’s decapitated deviancy is coming to Blu-ray on September 4th.

Image Entertainment has not specified the disc extras other than to state it will be "packed with bonus features (existing from earlier DVD releases), including audio commentaries from the film's director, producer and cast, interviews, extended scenes, galleries, and more."

The suggested retail price is $17.97, but right now you can pre-order it on Amazon for $12.58.

Herbert West (Combs) is obsessed with the idea of bringing the dead back to life. Experimenting with a glowing green fluid, he successfully reanimates dead tissue. Unfortunately, the dead are uncontrollable and difficult to subdue. Dr. Carl Hill, West's instructor, is determined to steal his secret and take all the credit for the discovery. Herbert isn't willing to give it up so easily. No matter what the consequences are! Stylishly directed by Stuart Gordon (From Beyond), this film adaptation of the short story "Herbert West: Reanimator" is a non-stop gore fest filled with wit and humor.

The lack of Stuart Gordon films on BD so far has been disappointing. This is a very important step towards fixing that. Great cover artwork too!
