Jekyll and Hyde...Together Again is a 1982 comedy based on the novella Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. The film is a cross between the original story and some aspects of The Nutty Professor. It stars Mark Blankfield, Bess Armstrong, Tim Thomerson, Krista Errickson, and Michael McGuire.


Brilliant surgeon Daniel Jekyll (Mark Blankfield) dedicates himself to medical research, hoping to unlock man's animal nature and increase his capacity for self-healing. Jekyll accidentally creates a white powder which, when inhaled through the nose, temporarily turns him into a completely uninhibited sex maniac who calls himself Steven Hyde. Jekyll can't bring himself to throw away the drug or to stop taking it, and Hyde's escapades play havoc with Jekyll's life. At the very end, the corpse of Robert Louis Stevenson is seen literally spinning in his grave.


The film was given a theatrical release in the United States by Paramount Pictures in October 1982. It grossed $3,792,188 at the box office.[2]

The film was released on VHS by Paramount Home Video in the 1980s.

The film was sub-licensed to Legend Films by Paramount and released on DVD in 2008 and Blu-ray in 2011. Olive Films would later re-release the film on Blu-ray on September 13, 2016.
