Lionsgate has revealed that they will be releasing Peter Jackson's Dead Alive to Blu-ray on October 4th, in celebration of the film's 20th anniversary.

There are no details on special features at this time, but after seeing Lionsgate's plans for Mimic's Blu-ray release, we're hoping they go all out. We have the Blu-ray cover art, so continue reading to see it for yourself.

Synopsis: "Director Peter Jackson's second feature cheerfully trumps the gross-out quotient of his splatterfest debut, the appropriately named Bad Taste. The tone is cartoonishly comic, and the premise is simple: The village dweeb (Timothy Balme) is trying to maintain a budding romance with the sweet Paquita (Diana Penalver) while concealing the fact that his overbearing mum (Elizabeth Moody, in an amazing good-sport performance) is a flesh-eating zombie. (She owes her condition to a bite from a "Sumatran Rat Monkey" at the local zoo." [AMC]
