Death Warmed Up

As a teenager, Michael Tucker was drugged by the evil scientist Dr. Howell to kill his parents, as his father was a rival of Howell. Years pass, which Michael spends in a psychiatric ward. After his release, he and his friends visit the island on which Howell has since built his institute. Michael wants revenge for the injustice done to him.

Original version only available in poor picture quality

On the German mediabook by CMV are two versions of the film. On the one hand an HD version in very good picture quality and on the other hand a reconstructed version in sometimes mediocre VHS quality.

There is no HD version of the original version of Death Warmed Up, as the 35mm film elements of the original were edited. Director David Blyth is said not to have been involved in this. In some places, there is alternate footage in the HD version. This is therefore to be considered an independent version.

The uncut version is only available as a reconstructed version, which was cut together from at least two image sources. This can be found on the CMV BD in the bonus material. Source might have been the DVD from New Zealand on which this version was first found.
