    I am not sure how many versions there are of this DVD much less what the quality is of each one of them.

    Which version is the one to get?

    Get the "Millenium Edition", the one in the groovy neon-green double-alpha. It's fantastic.

    Plus an anamorphic picture. I don't have it as I already have the original Elite DVD of it, but I do hear it's the inferior version (non anamorphic no DTS, some new extras)

    The Mill Ed also has the funniest & best cast & crew commentary track I've ever heard! You really get a sense of the fun they had making the movie, even some of the racier scenes...

    Dittos to all the compliments that have been payed to the Elite Millennium Edition of Re-Animator. And if it means anything to you the movie has a full bit-rate DTS track (1509 kbps) which is a rarity - it won't exactly knock your socks off due to the age and original mix of the film, but it says something about the care that went into the presentation. In fact the producer Brian Yuzna writes on the back cover what is essentially a love letter to the fans about the film's technical quality and other goodies on the disc.

    Needless to say the Elite Millennium Edition of Re-animator was a labor of love, and thus currently stands as the definitive presentation of the film on dvd.

    I loved the original, but wasn't it directed by Stewart Gordon? Where as I think "Bride" was directed by Yuzna - one of the worst directors working today. Gordon is a class act while Yuzna is cheese-ball city.
