    It just occurred to me that a blow your mind extra would be the taped rehearsal of Re-Animator: The Musical. I saw most of it at a convention last year but missed the end of it. I would just about kill to have that.

    Gordon seemed mindful of the poor video quality and may still be trying to get it produced so it's probably not going to happen. Still, I would just about kill to have a copy of that.

    Does anyone know if Anchor Bay still holds the rights to Bride Of Re-Animator as well?

    They never had the rights that I know of.

    It was released on DVD by Pioneer in 1999, and then later re-released (minus the extra features) by Artisan in 2003.

    So Lionsgate may hold the rights then. Would be nice if they released the sequel around the time the original comes out on BD.

    Sounds good to me Evil Dead 2 & Bride Of Re-Animator is a good start for a Lionsgate horror series of blus.

    I've been kicking myself for not grabbing a copy of that Pioneer SE of Bride when I had the chance. As for the original, Elite Entertainment seems to be back in business - they're allegedly releasing Deadly Spawn on Blu sometime this year so I'm willing to bet it's them who are doing ReAnimator. It's either them or Full Moon since the film was an Empire Pictures production.

    Full Moon doesn't really hold the rights to many of the Empire Pictures films at all. MGM owns the rights for the bulk of the Empire catalog now, and have released quite a few on DVD.

    Elite Entertainment would have to regain the licensing rights to release Re-Animator now. They had the rights once and then lost it to Anchor Bay. Who holds the rights now is anyone's guess...

    Any idea when the rights to all the old Empire Pictures movies revert back to Charles Band. MGM can't have the rights forever? Band said he plans to release special editions of his older works when he gets rights back.

    I thought MGM just outright owned them. Wikipedia shows where he sold the company in 1988, and then started Full Moon.

    Empire was basically broke in 1988.

    But of course, these things can change and it's hard to ever be 100% sure. I thought Anchor Bay owned the old New World library of films, but they all reverted to another company.

    Ugh, good news and bad news.

    Hopefully Image will do a better job than most of the Lakeshore Blu-ray releases they've done. The vast majority of them have had poor to just okay transfers.
