I was at the Digital Bits site and they had news about an upcoming re-release of Re-Animator
. There's also some new Phantasm and Hammer Films stuff.
Finally, Anchor Bay has also announced the release of a 2-disc H.P. Lovecraft's Re-Animator: Limited Edition DVD on 3/20 (SRP $24.98) - the first release in the new "Anchor Bay Collection" line of premium DVDs. Just 50,000 copies will be available, complete with a collectible syringe-shaped highlighter pen. The DVD will include a new anamorphic widescreen transfer approved by director Stuart Gordon, remastered audio in Dolby Digital and DTS, 2 audio commentaries (featuring Gordon, producer Brian Yuzna and actors Jeffrey Combs, Bruce Abbott and Barbara Crampton), the new feature-length documentary Re-Animator Resurrectus, new video interviews with the cast and crew, deleted and extended scenes, trailers and TV spots, multiple still galleries, and the original H.P. Lovecraft short story and screenplay adaptation on DVD-ROM. Ah yes... I remember all those exploding intestines fondly: Re-Animator has the unlikely honor of being the first film my wife and I ever saw together in a theater. And here we are, still together more than 20 years later! FYI, the Anchor Bay Collection titles will all feature restored picture and sound, and newly-produced extras. According to the studio, "future Anchor Bay Collection releases include Don Coscarelli's 1978 cult favorite Phantasm, the 1994 sequel Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead, and an upcoming Hammer Films box set." Here's a look at cover art for the Re-Animator Limited Edition and that cool pen...
I still haven't seen this film. I think there's a midnight show at a local theater this Saturday, but alas, I have to work that night.
