Video quality 3.5/5
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.

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.

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.
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.

Is it as bad as most reviewers say it is? Well, pretty much, but watching Piscopo chewing the scenery is worth the price of admission.Published 9 months ago by Bill Lepard
I saw this movie on cable tv back around 1990 or 1991 and kind of liked it. Then it just sort of disappeared. Read morePublished on Sept. 3 2002 by Bruce E. Munck
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. Read morePublished on June 20 2002 by Mondo Vendo
