The only quirk is that it defaults to subtitles on for DVDs, but it plays anything.
Yeah, I'm sick and tired of the region coding shit. It's time to do some shopping around.

Looks like RE-ANIMATOR is getting released on Blu in Canada as well;

RE-ANIMATOR on Amazon.ca

Anyone know anything about the company releasing it? At least we're getting a region A version.

Here's a list of Blu Ray releases they've done for Canada. It looks like they do a LOT of licensed Canadian distribution of US releases. Off a glance I'm seeing Criterion Collection, Synapse, Dark Sky, Image, etc. Quality will likely depend on who's handling the presumed US release. I'd kill for a Criterion edition of Re-Animator, but that's not likely at that pricepoint.

Looks like they Paradox also handles Canadian distribution for Blue Underground.

Based on the retail price ($22.99) and based on the release date (09/04/2012), I think the probable US release will likely be handled by...
Spoiler:
Image Entertainment as part of a 2nd wave of titles in the Midnight Madness Series. I hope I'm wrong, but the MSRP is the same as the rest of the Midnight Madness titles that Image released last year, and the release date is basically the one year anniversary (09/06/2011 vs. 09/04/2012).

WOW, we are getting spoilt here in the UK with these releases lately, From Beyond blu is a must, just hope it's the directors cut, can't imagine it won't be as they deal direct with MGM, so will probabaly use the master they created for the DVD release, it will be mine from day one, let's hope the disc's regional coding can be bypassed in the same was as ROTLD for you guys abroad.

And I preferred 'From Beyond' to 'Re animator', in fact come to think of it I prefer 'Dolls' to it as well, though 'Re animator' is still good, overrated but good.

I'm also looking forward to 'Society'. another great genre film.

One of the extras on the new Blu-Ray Steelbook, "WHAT'S IN THE BASKET?" clocks at 80 minutes.

It looks like the UK second sight releases of society, reanimator and its sequel will be receiving brand spanking me transfers according to their Facebook page.

They will be using these transfers http://www.kentaiblog.com/2012/11/re...asies.html?m=1

Can't wait, what with these and the superior (for once) arrow BD of zombie flesh eaters looks like we're getting some good stuff.

Quite possibly, since the Basket Case Trilogy and their Return of the Living Dead are both region free.

RE-ANIMATOR, BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR and SOCIETY NEWS! Lots of you have been asking about the materials for these 3 Blu-ray releases. We are happy to announce we will be accessing the brand-new transfers currently in production that so many of you have read about online. We are hoping to release around March next year. Thanks so much for all your comments, questions and interest in these titles, and sorry it's taken us so long to get this news to you.

Awesome! I'm the most excited about Society...I practically never would have expected that on Blu-ray.
