Arrow Video break Beyond Re-Animator out of the Fantastic Factory

Arrow Video have announced that the Beyond Re-Animator DVD that is part of the Fantastic Factory Presents set will also be available as as a stand-alone release the week after the Fantastic Factory Presents hits shelves on April 25th 2011. I'm anxious to check out the whole enchilada but for those looking for just a taste of the Re-Animator franchise here you go. It looks like a great package, much better than the Region 1 release. I believe that the other titles from the set will also follow suite in short order.

Beyond Re-Animator DVD
Release Date: April 25th 2011

Label: Arrow Video
Director: Brian Yuzna 
Cast: Jeffrey Combs, Elsa Pataky, Tommy Dean Musset
Tagline: Welcome to Death Row. The Doctor will see you now…

Trash cinema’s greatest ghoul is back! Horror legend Jeffery Combs returns as Dr. Herbert West in Beyond Re-Animator, the gory sequel to the original 80s splatter classic.

Incarcerated for the death of an innocent teenage girl at the hands of one of his resurrected corpes, Dr. West continues his insane research into the creation of life from behind bars. West makes a breakthrough with his discovery of Nano-Plasmic Energy, a substance that prevents the living dead from degenerating, but in doing so he unleashes bloody chaos in the prison as no one knows difference between the humans and the zombies.

From the fevered mind of HP Lovercraft and Brian Yuzna comes a sick horror comedy thrill ride in which you can trust no one... Alive or Dead!
