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.
If you are a Lovecraft fan ,you will love this one .
H.P Lovecraft is my favorite author. That being said, I have obviously read the original short story this film was based off of. Most of the film is different than the story, but they got it right. Herbert West was exactly like he was in the story. Arrogant, Egotistical and extremely intelligent. Jeffery Combs steals the show
Highly recommended if you're a horror or Lovecraft fan.
Ahhhh speaking of classics! This is such a fun trip down memory lane. If you are watching it for the first time, don't expect to be scared, but do expect to be entertained. If you have seen it and are giving it another view. I highly encourage it!
I read the original H.P. Lovecraft short story first, just to see if it made me appreciate the film more... turns out, you really don't need to do that, this film is its own entity, and it's outrageous. Jeffrey Coombs is brilliant as the young mad doctor; somber and deadly serious most of the time, but retaining a wonderfully dry wit. The music and the effects are top-notch, and of course, there's plenty of fanservice. I'm sure Lovecraft himself would be more than satisfied with this adaptation...
I remember loving this movie as a kid. I have no clue why at this point. I love H.P. Lovecraft and I love the story this is based on. That being said, this "cult classic" does not hold up well to the test of time. There are some decent effects, but the acting is terrible and there just isn't anything scary about the movie. I suppose there is supposed to be some dark humor here, like Return of the Living Dead or the Evil Dead movies, but I missed it. I won't be watching this ten years from now to see if I still like it. Reanimator is dead to me ( with no chance the glowing green liquid will revive it. )
