Trailer of the Week: The Dead Next Door (1989)

Ohio producer/director J.R. Bookwalter has launched an Indiegogo pre-ordering campaign for an upcoming "25th Anniversary Ultimate Edition" bluray of his first feature, the shot-on-Super 8 zombie epic (and namesake of this blog) The Dead Next Door.

The 3-disc set will launch whether or not he reaches his campaign goal, but if you're willing to pledge you can get early access to the limited edition release. The set will include four (!) unrated versions of the film, two of them created from a brand-new 2K restoration using original film elements. The remastered version will be offered in both the original 4:3 aspect ration and in a new 16:9 cropped widescreen option. the two previous VHS and DVD versions will also be included (along with all of the original extras).

The set will also include some a new commentary track, a new trailer, and a CD that includes the original soundtrack and some previously unreleased tracks from the film.

Check out the Indiegogo trailer below:
