This August we will all finally be able to own Ken Wiederhorn’s Return of the Living Dead Part II on Blu-ray. Is this a good thing? Shrugs. All the same, it will soon be an option.
Special features are still in progress and Scream Factory will be announcing them in early July. That said, today we can confirm this release will have a brand-new HD film transfer and will correct the soundtrack issues present on the previous DVD release.
This release will be branded as a “Collector’s Edition” and will come with a slipcover guaranteed for three months after its original release date. It also comes with newly-commissioned artwork from Graham Humphreys and will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will the original theatrical poster design.
The film is written and directed by Ken Wiederhorn and stars James Karen, Thom Mathews, Dana Ashbrook, Marsha Dietlein, Phil Bruns, and Michael Kenworthy.
The sequel hits Blu-ray August 14th.
Curious kids unearth the barrels that helped revive the dead of the first film, which proves the second time’s an undead charm.
