The 1981 cult-classic horror film “Dead & Buried” is officially coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on July 20th via Blue Underground, distributed by MVD Entertainment Group. The film, now celebrating its 40th anniversary, was directed by Gary Sherman and was co-written by Dan O’Bannon, and it starred James Farentino, Melody Anderson, Lisa Blount, Jack Albertson, and Robert Englund. The movie has received a new 4K restoration“from the 35mm IP approved by Director of Photography Steven Poster, ASC” — according to the press release. The tech specs for the 4K release include a 2160p presentation in the 1.85:1 aspect ratio with HDR10 and Dolby Vision forms of high dynamic range as well as English Dolby Atmos sound. In addition to the new Atmos mix, this release on 4K will also contain English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and 1.0 Mono mixes as well
The release will come in the form of a 3-disc set with its Blu-ray Disc counterpart as well as a CD (compact disc) of the original motion picture Soundtrack. As of now, there’s no preorder listing yet available over at Amazon but stay tuned for an update on that. It’s certainly worth noting that Blue Underground has worked hard on bringing you a total choice of three different lenticular slipcovers for this release and the two others are pictured individually below. UPDATE: You can now find the 3 different lenticular cover options available for preorder on 4K UHD Blu-ray (individually) over at Amazon as well as online retailer DiabolikDVD. Here are the links for each version: Cover A / Cover B / Cover C.
The bonus materials set to be included on this release, in addition to those physical extras aforementioned, will come with a Collectible Booklet with a new essay written by Michael Gingold.
