Johnny Dingle's passionate love doesn't die... even when he does. Johnny the zombie's (Andrew Lowery) journey to take Missy McCloud (Traci Lind) to the prom is getting a high-definition upgrade, as Mill Creek Entertainment will release 1993's My Boyfriend's Back on Blu-ray for the first time early next year.
According to Blu-ray.com, Mill Creek's My Boyfriend's Back Blu-ray is slated for a March 15th, 2016 release. In addition to Lowery and Lind, the dark romantic comedy also stars Edward Hermann, Mary Beth Hurt, and Cloris Leachman. The film marked early big screen appearances for Matthew Fox, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and Matthew McConaughey. Bob Balaban directed from a screenplay by Dean Lorey.
No special features have been revealed yet, but we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further announcements. In the meantime, we have a look at the Blu-ray cover art as well as the film's official synopsis and trailer:

Arriving for the first time on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films is Wim Wenders’ 1997 existentialist take on the definition of violence and its depictions with The End of Violence. A film that was re-cut after its poor reception after playing at the Cannes Film Festival in competition, its underwhelming limited theatrical release did little to spark much interest in the title, though Wenders would receive an Indie Spirit Award nod as Best Director. Feeling very much like the type of philosophically overbaked yarns that we’ve come to see frequent the later period of Atom Egoyan, Wenders’ Hollywood metaphor exploring voyeuristic societal issues at large is trapped by its fascinations with its own ideas. On paper, it sounds intriguing, as we’re dealing with the provocative hypothesis that, at a base level, asserts the mere act of ‘looking’ or ‘seeing’ something will eventually render the necessity of violence to be obsolete. »
