“Re-Animator”

If you’re not familiar with the writings of H.P. Lovecraft, I think you need to take this time to re-evaluate yourself as a reader and a movie watcher. Stuart Gordon directs and co-writes this fantastic cult horror sensation that puts a neat spin on the modern day Frankenstein/zombie-lore. Dr. Herbert West has found the answer to one of the great mysteries of life…how to cheat death. In the form of a strange green goo, one injection and dead mass become undead, and that’s when the terror follows…

Best known for the sheer brilliant, madcap, performances by Jeffrey Combs and the extensive use of 24 gallons of fake blood used throughout the production. It was cherished by fans of the horror genre and loathed by naysayers. Yet, today, “Re-Animator” is regarded as a modern horror classic on it’s own merits and spawned few sequels, which may not be as good as the original, but thank goodness for Combs, for sticking around, giving the fans what they want.
