Several months back we announced that Anchor Bay had acquired the distribution rights in the U.S., Canada, UK, and Australia-New Zealand for The Amazing Adventures of the Living Corpse, and that was basically the last we heard. So, today comes the announcement that Anchor Bay and Starz will be unleashing the animated flick onto Blu-ray this June 18th.
Unfortunately we don’t have any word on any special features just yet, but I’m sure, or at least I am hoping that this one will be filled to the brim. In the meantime go check out the trailer below.
From the Press Release:
“The film is an adaptation of the underground hit graphic novel by Ken Haeser and Buz Hasson. A guilt-ridden corpse takes on a heavy burden when he agrees to help a Fallen Angel keep the other undead in their graves and powers of evil from corrupting our world.
The nature of the superhero making its transition from the sublime pages of comic books to the magical screens of cinema, however, will be slightly unique this time around. For starters, the title character isn’t your typical caped crusader – he’s a zombie. And he’s not just a typical zombie, either. He’s a contentious, imposing citizen of the walking dead club with an intact memory from when he was alive, and a mission to protect the Earth from other brain-sucking flesh-eaters. The Amazing Adventures of the Living Corpse, which was directed by Justin Ritter, produced by Ritter and Ruskin and Executive Produced by Eduardo Castro, Eileen Craft, Darcy Feld and Dennis Sonnenschein, took three years to animate and was rendered in state-of-the-art RealD 3D.”
