If you've been clamoring to get your hands on a Blu-ray of THE DEAD NEXT DOOR, starting today you'll have your chance! I'm very proud to announce preorder availability of an epic 3-disc "Ultimate Edition" shipping this fall. This promises to be the definitive release of my debut feature film, a journey that began 30 years ago!
Although I've been a vocal critic of crowdfunding in the past, I've chosen Indiegogo as the exclusive platform to launch the first 1,000 copies of this ambitious package, mostly because it allows me to bundle the Blu-ray with a bunch of fun stuff that would never see the light of day on their own.
To kick things off, I've also released a brand-new 1080p HD trailer, which will give viewers a first look at the 2K restoration cropped to 16:9 format for the very first time. (Be sure to select the HD option for maximum effect!) But don't worry — the Blu-ray also includes the same restoration in the original 4:3 aspect ratio, so you'll still be able to enjoy the film the way it was committed to Super-8mm film back in 1986.
I'll let the campaign do the rest of the talking, but will close with a big "thank you" to the cast & crew who labored on this project for four long years, my wife & son for putting up with the insanity of this extensive restoration in recent months, and of course, everyone who's taken the time to sit down and watch this crazy little flick over the years. It may not have aged like fine wine, but will still get you drunk if you watch it enough!
