Oh baby, Dead Alive is coming to Blu-ray!

On Oct. 4, Lionsgate will release Peter Jackson’s (The Frighteners) high-spirited 1992 zombie gore-a-thon Dead Alive on Blu-ray disc for the list price of $19.98.

The release represents the comedy-horror film’s Blu-ray debut in the U.S.

Hysterical, outrageous and filled with bloodthirsty zombies, Dead Alive revolves around mama’s boy Lionel (Timothy Balme, Jack Brown Genius) who has the unfortunate task of looking after his aging, evil mother (Elizabeth Moody, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring).

While out to sabotage her son’s love life, Mom is accidently bitten by a Sumatran rat-monkey, which turns her into a flesh-eating zombie. Lionel is then forced to put his relationship on hold to stop his undead mother and the rest of the town that she’s infected before it’s too late. That’s when the gore really kicks in!

No special features have been announced for the Blu-ray.
