The 1985 cult classic horror/comedy “The Return of the Living Dead“ is officially coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on October 18th via Scream Factory (Shout! Factory). The film, directed by Dan O’Bannon, starred Clu Gulager, Don Calfa, James Karen, Thom Mathews, Beverly Randolph, John Philbin, Jewel Shepard, Miguel A. Núñez Jr., Brian Peck, Linnea Quigley, and Mark Venturini.
The tech specs for the release will include a 2160p video presentation in the original 1.85:1 aspect ratio with [likely at least] HDR10 form of high dynamic range and presumably a lossless sound mix in either/or 5.1 or 2.0 configuration(s). Perhaps they’ll even do a Dolby Atmos mix? I can’t yet say for certain because the official tech specs have yet to be announced, along with the extras to be included with the release but stay tuned for a later update on that.
The release will come as a “combo pack” with the Blu-ray Disc counterpart included and seemingly another Blu-ray for extras, in what is said to be a 3-disc set. You can now find the 4K UHD Blu-ray available for preorder over at Amazon as well as directly via ShoutFactory.com where you’ll find an exclusive poster. Also, Shout! Factory Store will have an exclusive enamel pin set and you can find that [limited to 1000] set available for preorder now.
