April 12th is a good day to be a genre fan, as we have several great releases coming our way this Tuesday. Arrow Films has put together the definitive edition of the cult classic Bride of Re-Animator that is filled to the brim with all sorts of awesomeness, and Scream Factory is taking us to the Village of the Damned with their Collector’s Edition Blu-ray as well as a double feature of Destroyer and Edge of Sanity.

If you missed it in theaters, now you can finally catch up with The Forest as it arrives on both formats Tuesday. If you’ve been holding out on adding It Follows to your home entertainment collection, there’s a new steelbook edition coming out this week that looks great and we’re also finally getting Flight 7500 on DVD April 12th.

Other notable releases include Where the Devil Dwells, Medousa, and Schramm.

Bride of Re-Animator Three Disc Limited Edition (Arrow Video, Blu-ray w/DVD)

DATE. MATE. RE-ANIMATE. The success of Stuart Gordon s hit horror-comedy Re-animator meant that a sequel was all but inevitable. The resulting follow-up, Bride of Re-animator - this time helmed by director Brian Yuzna (Society, Return of the Living Dead 3 and Producer of the original Re-Animator) - would prove that there was a good deal more life left in the story of Dr. Herbert West and his ghoulish exploits. 

It is 8 years since the Miskatonic massacre. Unperturbed by the disastrous outcome of his previous meddling with the dead, Dr. West (again played by Jeffrey Combs) continues his research into the phenomenon of re-animation; only this time, he plans to create life starting with the heart of his young protégé Dan’s dearly deceased, Meg Halsey. Surely nothing could go wrong?

With special effects master Screaming Mad George (the man behind the infamous shunting sequence in Society) on hand to contribute a host of characteristically weird and wonderful creations including zombified bats and a one-eyed finger spider Bride of Re-Animator is a more than worthy successor to Gordon’s original cult classic.
