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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Sure, it's not blu-ray. Sure, the jokes are bad the story is ...off. But it was great fun in the 80's and I loved taking the walk down memory lane. Product was delivered quickly and without difficulty

This movie was one of the first (and few) to mash the buddy/zombie cop genres. Treat Williams is perfect as the good (dead) cop, and Joe Piscipo does well as his wise-cracking, flexing partner. The action is well done, with some great scenes only possible if your hero is already dead. Darren McGavin and Key Luc and Vincent Price add extra layers of cheese to this very well done B+++ movie. Just don't order chinese food before watching.
