    "Lions Gate¹s strong tradition of releasing crowd-pleasing horror films is only strengthened by the debut of Beyond Re-Animator and Leprechaun Back 2 Tha Hood," said Peter Block, Lions Gate President of Home Entertainment, Acquisitions, and New Media. *"Both films combine the chills, effects and laughs that made the originals cult classics."

    BEYOND REANIMATOR
    After causing the Miskatonic University Massacre, Dr. Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) has been serving a prison sentence for the past 14 years. Far from overcoming his scientific obsession with bringing dead organisms back to life, he has had no choice but to continue his experiments on the only specimens he can find in his cell: rats. But when new doctor Howard (Jason Barry) begins working as the prison MD, he brings with him something Dr. West left behind...

    Beyond Re-Animator will be mine. Oh yes, it will.

    Heh, I like how the official press release spelled "Re-Animator" wrong [​IMG]

    New Re-Animator installments are always welcome. Leprechaun...well, that's another story.

    I though the sequel to Re-Animator was Bride of Re-Animator

    It was. This is a 3rd film that comes after Bride of the Re-Animator. It premiered a month ago exclusively on the Scifi channel, and now its coming to DVD. Personally I was disappointed with it. I'll pass on the DVD.

    Since I have no intention of purchasing the DVD, I can't look on the back of it. Why don't you just tell us what the critic said?
