Further Details:
Today I got an email from Lionsgate concerning an update to their Blu-ray catalog. Among prestige choices like The Cider House Rules, Life is Beautiful and Cinema Paradiso, and terrible releases like Scary Movie 2 and Scary Movie 3, was a mention of Peter Jackson's classic zombie-gore-comedy

Dead Alive

, aka: Braindead.

Here's the press release, which doesn't mention any extras, or extended status (I'm assuming it will be the US unrated cut):

Quote: One of the goriest fright films of all-time makes its high definition debut this fall as Lionsgate releases Dead Alive on Blu-ray Disc.  The early film from Oscar® winning director Peter Jackson (Best Director, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, 2003) is a cult classic with horror fans.  Hysterical, outrageous and filled with bloodthirsty zombies, the film hits Blu-ray just in time for its 20th anniversary.

A mama's boy who has the unfortunate task of looking after his aging, evil mother, Lionel (Timothy Balme) believes his dreams have come true when he meets the love of his life.  While out to sabotage her son's happiness, his Mum (Elizabeth Moody, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring) is accidentally bitten by a Sumatran rat-monkey, which turns her into a flesh-eating zombie.  Lionel is forced to put his relationship on hold to stop his undead mother, and the rest of the town that she's infected before it's too late.
