'Beyond Re-Animator' Getting UK Blu-ray Release in February from Arrow Video


In addition to a stunning 2-film set featuring Lamberto Bava's Demons and Demons 2, Arrow Video this morning announced they'll be giving Beyond Re-Animator, the second sequel to Stuart Gordon’s undisputed 1985 splatter classic Re-Animator, a brand new Blu-ray release this coming February.


In the film, "Finally being held accountable for his catastrophic experiments in re-animating the dead, Dr Herbert West (Combs) finds himself incarcerated at a maximum-security penitentiary. With the arrival of a new prison doctor who happens to be an enthusiastic student of West’s work, the medical deviant is afforded the opportunity to resume his grisly studies - this time on his fellow inmates, with predictably hair-raising results."


"Once again helmed by gore guru Brian Yuzna (Bride of Re-Animator, Society) with memorably imaginative make-up effects by Screaming Mad George (Society, The Guyver), Beyond Re-Animator breathes new life into the hit horror franchise."
