A medical student and his girlfriend become involved in a bizarre experiment into reanimating the dead conducted by the student's incorrigible housemate in this campy sendup of an H.P. Lovecraft story. The emphasis is on humour but once the dead walk, there is gore aplenty.

Low budget collision of black comedy and gruesome horror marked the debut of director Stuart Gordon and has gone on to be a classic among horror fans.

Medical student discovers that his strange new roommate has a formula that will bring dead bodies back to life, unfortunately it falls into the wrong hands and all bloody hell breaks loose.

With its campy humor and wall-to-wall splatter FX, it's not hard to see how Re-Animator became a favorite among genre fans. The film is loosely based upon the classic story 'Herbert West - Re-Animator' by the great H.P. Lovecraft and although this film adaptation doesn't have the same creepy atmosphere of the story, it more than makes up for that with some truly wild action. It's quick-paced, well-acted, and frankly has a number of unforgettable scenes. The most memorable of which involves a lustful severed head and our helpless leading lady. Gordon's direction is effective and the makeup work is outstanding. Kudos also go to Richard Band for his quirky theme music, even though it does sound a lot like the Psycho theme.

All around the performances are good but it's really Jeffery Combs who shines as the plucky Dr. West (villain or hero, you decide).

For those that enjoy strong horror comedies Re-Animator is a must, but you might not want to watch it before dinner.
