Arrow Video has just revealed details about an upcoming Limited Edition of Stuart Gordon’s horror cult classic Re-Animator, scheduling its release for July.

When medical student Dean Cain (Bruce Abbott) advertises for a roommate, he soon finds one in the form of Dr. Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs). Initially a little eccentric, it some becomes clear that West entertains some seriously outlandish theories—specifically, the possibility of re-animating the dead. It’s not long before Dean finds himself under West’s influence, and embroiled in a serious of ghoulish experiments which threaten to go wildly out of control…

One of the most wildly popular horror movies of all-time, Stuart Gordon’s enduring splatter-comedy classic Re-Animator returns to Blu-ray in a stunning version that has been restored in 4K. But what’s more, the release will include the 86-minute-long Unrated version of the movie in 1080p with its original Stereo 2.0 and 5.1 Audio, as well as the 105-minute Integral version, exclusive to this Limited Edition.

The release also includes a Collector’s Booklet featuring new writing on the film by writer Michael Gingold, as well as the original 1991 Re-Animator Comic Book adaptation, reprinted in its entirety.

Naturally, the release will be packed with bonus features.

On the second disc of the set, you will find the Integral Version along with A Guide to Lovecraftian Cinema, a brand new featurette looking at the many various cinematic incarnations of writer H.P. Lovecraft’s work.
