Re-Animator is one of my all time favorite zombie movies to this day. Re-Animator with its great gore and awesome performance from Jeffery Combs playing Herbert West. This is a classic movie and if you have not seen it, go out and watch it NOW! Seriously you won't be sorry, hopefully....
Re-Animator is about this man who works at a hospital and one day there is a new doctor/student/whatever at the hospital he is working at and his name is Herbert West. Herbert is looking to learn all he can about Re-animation and doesn't take to kindly to the man who is teaching him. Herbert needs a place to stay so he stays with the main character, whose name slips me, and he eventually is forced to tell him all about his re-animating liquid he made when he kills the man's cat and revives it. Now that they tested the syrum on small animals they want to try it on humans, but there is a violent re-action in humans and all hell breaks loose. Now they have to find a way to stop the undead from living...again.
This movie was very very good and I loved every short minute of it. The movie isn't overly long and it isn't too short, and I loved that too. lol. But the movie wasn't perfect but it was damn close to it.
Re-Animator is also very gory and there are some really great gore scenes. Like the ones in the mortuary place and the end, and this movie has a weird reverse necrophelia scene but I won't give that away, lets just say it was weird. :/...But this movie has great gore.
The acting isn't that great but its also a low budget movie and a first, I believe, from Stuart Gordon. Stuart manages to work in some funny dark humor that works very well in this movie as well and it blends perfectly with Lovecraft's story.
Overall Re-Animator is a must for all horror fans and you should go out and see the greatness now! I give Re-Animator a 9/10!!!!
