This is Re-Animator as we have been waiting to see it. The technical quality of the picture and sound has never been better, making this the definitive state-of-the-art version of this blood drenched horror classic. We have kept the original commentary tracks, but added gobs of other material, including on-camera interviews with the writer, director, producer, composer and others. Credit Elite Entertainment and their producer, Jack F. Murphy, for investing so much time and money, and for taking such care with all the little details that go into creating a first rate product.

Re-Animator is a very special movie to me and many others involved in its production, and it is gratifying to have it presented in such an excellent way. For horror fans this edition preserves what we love about Re-Animator in all its sturm and drang and gory glory, and for cinema buffs it is just a great genre movie in a great DVD package. If it has been a while since you have seen Re-Animator, this is a good time to re-view it, and if you have never seen it before, this is your opportunity to see what the excitement is all about.

So, take this one home and enjoy!

Easter Eggs
As you can tell from the packaging of the disc, this DVD release of this cultish gorefest features a commentary track by the cast. However, as it turns out, this commentary track is not limited to the movie presentation itself.

If you go to the movie's trailer presentation with the commentary track turned on, you will actually get to hear the cast members comment on the trailer itself, as well as the 'Early promotional spot' on the disc. It all eventually climaxes with Barbara Cramptons infamous scream at the end... live!
