Bride of Re-Animator (1989) – Blu-ray review

Synopsis: Doctors Herbert West and Dan Cain discover the secret to creating human life and proceed to create a perfect woman from dead tissue.

What’s it like? The Evil Dead meets Frankenstein.

Film: 7/10. Much like The Evil Dead and its sequel, Bride of Re-Animator ramps up the black comedy and gore to good effect. It doesnt quite reach the heights of the original, but there’s plenty for horror fans to admire. 98 mins.

Picture quality: 8/10. Arrow has done a great job restoring the film. Detail is good though it occasionally takes a hit when there are garish colours on screen. Some scenes have variations in grain and detail levels, though that’s mostly attributable to source elements used for the restoration.

Audio quality: 8/10. The stereo surround track is rendered well in lossless. The score and cheesy sound effects and presented with good clarity.
