Bride Of Re-animator

Overview

Though not a critical or financial success upon its release, Brian Yuzna's Bride of Re-Animator has gone on to achieve a similar cult status on video, thanks in no small part to the love of those who put together this Pioneer special edition DVD released by Artisan. Fans of the Re-Animator films will be overjoyed by a beautiful digital presentation, but the real treat is the multitude of extras.

Overview

Though not a critical or financial success upon its release, Brian Yuzna's Bride of Re-Animator has gone on to achieve a similar cult status on video, thanks in no small part to the love of those who put together this Pioneer special edition DVD released by Artisan. Fans of the Re-Animator films will be overjoyed by a beautiful digital presentation, but the real treat is the multitude of extras. The packaging proudly proclaims that the disc contains the R-rated and unrated versions of the film, but the differences between them are barely noticeable. In fact, the run times on both are virtually the same (just over 96 minutes). This is nitpicking, however, as the disc does feature tons of cool stuff. The unrated side contains the film plus a highly entertaining featurette that runs 23 minutes and has some great behind-the-scenes footage. The R-rated side has the film, a 55-second theatrical trailer, and a deleted scene in which Bruce Abbott unsuccessfully tries to resurrect his beloved girlfriend Meg (Mary Sheldon taking over for the first film's Barbara Crampton). This cut sequence runs eight minutes long and is shown from a number of different takes. There are also two commentary tracks: one featuring stars Jeffrey Combs and Bruce Abbott doing a Mystery Science Theater 3000-style routine and the other with director Brian Yuzna, Combs, and special-effects contributors Howard Berger, Robert Kurtzman, Screaming Mad George, Thomas C. Rainone, Micheal Deak, Wayne Toth, and John Carl Buechler. The Combs and Abbott track is amusing in parts, but not informative or interesting enough to hear twice. The second commentary is like a special effects roundtable as the guys sit around, drink beer, and chat about their various contributions to the film. This lively discussion provides an inside look at the furious pace under which everyone worked and includes fascinating details on how the film's many mechanical and makeup effects came together so well in the days before CGI. Last, but not least, is a great photo gallery that has candid shots, props, effects stills, conceptual drawings, promotional materials, and even some shots of another deleted sequence in which Dr. Hill's head is found in a carnival sideshow.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Stuart Gordon's cult classic Re-Animator was a tough act to follow, but Brian Yuzna does an admirable job of keeping with the splattery spirit of the original while adding to the fun with a plethora of incredible monsters. Jeffrey Combs is back and in great comic form as the wacky Dr. West, whose experimentation with re-animating the bodies of the dead in the first film has led him to believe he can create new life. The results are shocking and hilarious, often at once. An eyeball is propped atop a set of fingers that serve as legs forming a ghoulish spider-like creation. Torsos are sewn haphazardly with arms, legs, heads, and animals in a blistering display of makeup effects, prosthetics, and stop-motion effects -- all pre-CGI methods -- that were worked upon by no less than six effects companies, including Screaming Mad George and KNB studios. The story is thin, but there's just enough substance to hold the weight of the near-constant barrage of effects. While the first film was based solely on H.P. Lovecraft's Herbert West -- Re-Animator, this picture combines elements of Lovecraft with those of James Whale's Bride of Frankenstein. Best of all is the climax, which borrows heavily from the 1933 classic Island of Lost Souls as Dr. West's misfit monsters attack him. The cast is suitably over the top with David Gale excellent in the role of the decapitated Dr. Hill. Gale is later featured in one of the wildest sequences in which he has a bat's wings sewn to his melon so that he can fly. Kathleen Kinmont also deserves credit for her small, but highly effective role as the re-animated bride. Her heart-ripping performance begins as a sort of sexy homage to Elsa Lanchester in Bride of Frankenstein, but then takes an unforgettably bloody turn.

    Gordon's Great Follow Up

    This sequel is every bit as fun as the original. Both Bruce Abbott and Jeffrey Combs return in their roles as Dan and Herbert West, respectively. The second time around, things are even more camp. With an ending just as action packed and exciting as the first, this movie should not be missed!! Just wait for the return of the disgusting Dr. Hill! Much more 'mad scientist' at play, Herbert makes a collection of oddities that make this movie utterly indescribable.

    He's ALIVE!

    The sequal to an excellent movie. A must see if you have seen the first movie (Re-Animator). Good blood, gore, humor, and acting. Buy this one for everyone in the family!
