Favours gore, fun and laughs over any serious contemplation of the underlying themes, and it's never anything less than shlockily entertaining. Full Review

Re-Animator is splatter heaven. Based on the sci-fi novel by H.P. Lovecraft, Re-Animator's gore is exceeded only by its wit. Full Review

Rating: 9/10 -- It's remarkable that, over 30 years since its release, Re-Animator still stands as the best film-adaptation of any H.P. Lovecraft story to date. Full Review

Product Description:

Herbert West (Jeffery Combs) has found the secret to eternal life--or so he thinks. West needs fresh cadavers to continue his experiments in the re-animation of dead tissue, so he enlists the help of young medical student Dan Cain (Bruce Abbott) to steal bodies from the local morgue. Despite all the warning signs of failure, the eccentric West's research continues. The results are crazed zombies that roam the streets, severed heads that talk, murder, madness, and chaos, all in the name of science, of course. Director Stuart Gordon's film debut, an adaptation of the short story by H.P. Lovecraft, is a masterpiece of ghoulish fun. Graphic special effects, good scripting, and perfectly over-the-top performances make RE-ANIMATOR a classic horror film in the tradition of THE EVIL DEAD and RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD.

Plot Synopsis:

In Stuart Gordon's RE-ANIMATOR, a demented medical student develops a serum that can bring human corpses back to life, but the re-animated carcasses turn spastically violent in this smart, gore-strewn, tongue-in-cheek schlocker based on a story by H.P. Lovecraft.


Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: September 14, 1985.
  • RE-ANIMATOR was Stuart Gordon's first feature film after establishing the Organic Theater Company in Chicago, Illinois.
  • The film is based on a short story by H.P. Lovecraft.
