Product Description

Violent criminals who can't be killed are shooting up Los Angeles, and the investigation leads LAPD detectives Roger Mortis (Treat Williams) and Doug Bigelow (Joe Piscopo) to a mysterious pharmaceutical firm. But when Mortis is suddenly murdered, his coroner girlfriend and loose cannon partner discover the company's "resurrection machine" that turns Roger into the walking dead. Now the department's most unstoppable cops must battle zombie hit men, a butcher shop gone berserk and the deceased industrialist (the legendary Vincent Price in one of his final film roles) who may hold the key to it all. But can Mortis solve his own homicide case before he completely decomposes?

This is the story of two L.A. detectives Roger Mortis ( Treat Williams) and Doug Bigelow ( Joe Piscopo) who are solving crimes caused by undead criminals caused by a mysterious medical company that has a machine that resurrects the dead into zombies. Roger unfotunately gets killed, but he gets brought back to life but only for 13 hours before he can decompose into dust, he must solve his own homicide and find the mastermind behind it.
A highly entertaining, gory and funny mixture of sci-fi, horror, action, buddy cop and comedy with great make-up and monster effects by Steve Johnson, Vincient Price and Darren Mcgavin ( A Christmas Story) co-star as the bad guys who own the medical company. There is also plenty of action, witty humor, a memorable Chinese butcher shop scene involving undead meat, gore, and a nice twist in the end. This DVD offers excellent picture and sound quality all thanks to Anchor Bay's Divamax, great extras such as deleted scenes ( Scenes that had to avoid the X rating when this movie came out in 1988), Commentary by the director and writer, Poster-and-still gallery, Original storyboard art, MIFED promo, Widescreen, theatrical trailer.
I recommend this movie to fans of zombie movies, action flicks and horror comedies.

This is a dead-come-back-to-life-and-kill-people movie. I was expecting a straight cops action movie from the cover before I watched it. When I noticed it was a comedy and seeing what a funny looking face Joe Piscopo has, I thought it had a good chance of being funny. But a funny face does not make a comedy. Joe Piscopo simply makes stupid comments to every situation and is otherwised straight-faced and uneffected by the unusual events around him.
A scene where a cop drives a car full force into a criminal and a scene where a dead pig, chickens and sides of beef come to life and attack the cops are the only thing that brought any humor or interest.
This movie is bad. It has only a few qualities that make it one of those so-bad-its-good movies, but it doesn't have enough. This one is bad and stays bad.

I saw this movie on cable tv back around 1990 or 1991 and kind of liked it. Then it just sort of disappeared. Four or five months ago (early summer 2002) I was looking at some DVDs at a flea market and, lo and behold, there it was ... all brand new and shrink-wrapped. I think I paid a whole [$] for the DVD. It was marketed by some off-the-wall video company, but surprise, surprise, the picture and sound quality are VERY good. I think it looks as good as it did on cable. Well, the movie is still not a classic or anything, but it probably is developing a following of sorts since it is so hard to come by. Sorry, but I can't help you to find a copy of it. The best I can do is to tell you to do what I did ... search carefully at your local flea market and keep your fingers crossed. Good luck.

Don't get me wrong. The last time I watched this movie, it was memorable that I wanted to own it. Years past, my country sucks (sorry, but its true) and finally... HERE IT IS! The DVD version of "Dead Heat" (Thank you!!!)
So anyway, after viewing this rare artifact, the fun is back again... with extras! The deleted scenes were something, but I like the promo kit and even the trailer I never get to watch at all! Fun, enjoyable and something you shouldn't pass it by, this movie features Treat Williams at his best with unbelievable (yet entertaining) dead zombies and animals that will either gross you out or just make you laugh out loud. Its a rare find and its worth on your shelve.

I saw this in the theater way back when and I thought it was hilarious so I went and saw it again. Treat Williams is a cop who dies and yet he lives on and decomposes throughout the film. Piscipoe is not funny normally - this is the only time you'll ever see him being funny. The film was not well received and I think it has somewhat of a cult following since only a handful of people actually liked it. Haven't seen it in ages so I don't know how well it would hold up. I remember it being really cool though. This is what 80's movies were all about... being really terrible with cheesey special effects, but entertaining as all hell. I won't buy it until it comes to DVD.

I am very excited to discover that Dead Heat is on it's way to DVD. We have officers Roger Mortis (Treat Williams) and Doug Bigelow (joey P)hunting re-animated crooks. In the course of their investigation, Mortis get's whacked and must go through the "Resurrection machine" for a second chance at heroism.
Dead Heat: blood, guts, decaying bodies, and laughter--one of 1988's finest films and an underappreciated comedy-horror.
Other notable players are Dr McNab, played by Darren McGavin (father from Christmas Story), Martha Quinn (how 80's can you get), oh and some guy named Vincent Price as Loudermilk.
