Let's just hope it's not really the R-rated cut. If it's the unrated cut, then I'm all over this. I currently own the Region 2 Braindead uncut "Red Edition" German DVD, which is non-anamorphic (and I don't have a region-free player anymore). The unrated Dead Alive cut is actually Peter Jackson's preferred cut of the film anyway.

I'm pretty sure the Blu-Ray will be the Unrated cut since it's highly likeable. I was hoping for a CE with 2 cuts of the film (the Unrated and 104-Minute cuts) and extras. Still, it's great it's coming to Blu-Ray.

EDIT: Yeah. It'll be the Unrated Cut. I looked at the listing and it stated 97 mins (the theatrical cut ran at 85 mins).

I just checked the LionsgateLink website (with info for distributors and retailers) and there's no listing posted yet. I'll keep checking these next few days and post when they confirm it and list specs.

If the unrated is 97 mins and the theatrical is 85 mins, what the 104-Minute cut you talk?

Lionsgate reissued the old Trimark DVD with the 97 minute uncut version so no reason not to expect that version for the BD IMO.

Oh Wikipedia, answer our call in this our hour of need:
Quote:
In some nations, such as Australia and the United Kingdom, the 104 minute film was shown in full.

In the United States, where the film was released as Dead Alive (because of another film with rights to the practically identical title Brain Dead), the R-Rated version is only 85 minutes with most of the gore scenes removed, while the unrated cut is 97 minutes with the gore scenes mostly intact.

The USA 97 minute version is Peter Jackson's preferred version, as he was given the opportunity to "apply some additional spit and polish" to it.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Braindead_%28film%29

I'd cross my fingers for both 97 and 104 to be included but somehow doubt it will.

It' been reported that Bad Taste, Meet the Feebles and Braindead would be released so hopefully the remaining two won't be far behind.

I'm okay with the 97 minute version, as that's the one I've always viewed on VHS and DVD. But it'd be cool to see the scenes from the international version in the extra features.

You know someone should ask Peter Jackson about this release via his Facebook page. Does he have one?

I hope that both versions are included. The us cut has better flow but the longer version has tons of extra gore.

Americans are murderers of directors visions with their edited, dubbed, censored versions...
First your murdered Jackie Chan with your "edited" versions...
Then Mad Max with your "dubbed" version...
Then Peter Jackson with your "edited" and "censored" version...
