Being a cop for a living can sometimes have deadly consequences and Roger Mortis and Doug Bigelow are about to find that out, the hard way. It appears that a doctor has learned how to re-animate the dead and now he is sending out his re-animated corpses on crime sprees throughout the city. Standing in the way of the newly re-animated goons are officers Mortis and Bigelow. Mortis is killed during an investigation at the lab and thanks to his partner, he gets brought back to life from the Resurrection machine. How do you fight dead corpses? The answer is simple, with the re-animated cop duo of Mortis & Bigelow. Welcome to Dead Heat.

Thanks to Image Entertainment for bringing 'Dead Heat' to Blu-ray. Is the Blu-ray picture & sound perfect, the answer is no. The 1080p High Definition 1:78.1 Widescreen transfer is a mixed bag in terms of quality. While viewing this Blu-ray, I had to remember that 'Dead Heat' wasn't a Hollywood blockbuster in terms of budget or special effects.

There is some considerable print damage during the opening and closing credits in the form of dust particles or speckling. I also noticed a slight picture wobble here and there but not enough to ruin my viewing experience. The video image is clear but quite grainy and a bit noisy at times. Black levels are slightly inconsistent throughout the film. Colors seemed a bit soft but every once in a while you'd get an occasional pop of color here and there, especially the reds. The best way to gauge the picture quality is to watch the rough looking trailer and then play the film. There is quite a noticeable difference. Unless this film undergoes a complete restoration, this is probably the best it will ever look.

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.
