    Can anybody confirm that Anchor-bay will be re-releasing Zombie next year.
    If so will it have the same commentary track?

    Anchor Bay will be re-releasing it sometime, but they haven't set a date and it's not on their in-production list. I'm sure it will have the commentary track, though, unless their relations with Roan turn sour.

    AB is gonna re-release it in a Limited Edition Tin and it's gonna have better picture quality.The original release has already gone out of print.

    Just spoke with my Anchor Bay contact.

    Too soon to have any specifics on Zombie, but at this point they "doubt it will be offered in an LE tin".

    Yes, they will have something better. Instead of a tin, it'll be wrapped in flesh!

    Can anyone offer confirmation as to this going out of print? That's certainly news to me.

    <A HREF="http://www.image-entertainment.com">Image Entertainment</A> lists the DVD as Discontinued - that's a safe bet that it is true.

    I'm hanging onto the Roan Group LD until Anchor Bay puts something better out.

    never cared much for VIGILANTE. There are better revenge flicks that needs re-mastering or restoring than that! I mean the film ends so abruptly. At the theatres I was like "huh, thats it??!!"
     
  12. On eBay the the Zombie DVD from anchor bay that I have is going for like $40-$50! it must be out of print if that many people are paying that kind of money for a copy that is, honestly, crappy quality. And just as a side note, I really can't stand the commentary on the DVD. BORING!

    How many versions of Zombie is coming to dvd? You all are saying that Anchor Bay is going to release it (again) I also read that Shriek Show is gonna release it and so will Blue Underground. What's the deal? Which one is gonna be worth buying? The Shriek Show version is supposed to be the full uncut version (yeah, like we've never heard that one before!!!) trailers, still galleries and over 2 hours of cast and crew interviews (yeah, I know, that sounds pretty hard to believe, but that's what I read.)

    Given that the date on the first post is December 2000 - I think it safe to assume they were talking about a PREVIOUS reissue. ;)

    Welcome to the forums.

    Yeah, there's a whole thread in Euro-horror about the two new releases, this was obviously before Anchor Bay realized they were losing the rights.

    The tin releases weren´t that good sellers (blame CANDY for that!), so AB dropped the tins for good.

    The only Anchor Bay tins that I have are THE BEYOND and LET SLEEPING CORPSES LIE.

    I also have that awesome WOOD BOX they did for THE WICKER MAN.

    The only other tin I wish I had bought was the REPO MAN one.

    P.S.
    I also had the HELLRAISER tin but I bought it for my GF who recently moved out and took it so I guess I don't have it no more :cry:
