THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD DVD RELEASE !
You may remember quite recently a banner on our home page linking to a 'Return of the Living Dead' DVD campaign site. Anyway, it worked!
MGM will release 'The Return of the Living Dead' on DVD August 27th (no VHS re-release though as MGM is 'phasing out' VHS.)
The DVD will feature a brand new transfer remastered from the original negative, a newly created sound mix supervised by director Dan O'Bannon, an audio comentary by O'Bannon and production designer William Stout, a featurette called 'Designing the Dead' featuring new interviews, a stills gallery featuring Stout's sketches and art work from the film & theatrical trailer. Even better news, MGM has given Dan the go ahead to assemble elements to put together a director's cut of the film for a
possible re-release down the line if the first DVD sells well.
None of this would've happened had Dan not gotten involved (he's rather hard to find and MGM apparently could not locate him). Fans *can* make a difference if they're dedicated enough.
