Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
This raw, bloody, low-budget horror-comedy was loosely based on stories by H.P. Lovecraft. The story deals with college med students reviving dead bodies with a serum which accidentally turns them into violent, bloodthirsty zombies. Jeffrey Combs is perfect as the obsessed Dr. West, and Bruce Abbott makes a good naive straight-man for Combs' nerdy lunatic. The late David Gale stands out as the jealous Dr. Hill, who ends up decapitated, then re-animated and wandering around with his head in his hands, only to perform a particularly foul act upon nude scream-queen Barbara Crampton. Director Stuart Gordon stages some impressive gore scenes and some very funny gallows humor; many consider Re-Animator as the best American splatter comedy of the '80s.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert

Stuart Gordon's Re-Animator is a pleasure...a frankly gory horror movie that finds a rhythm and a style that make it work in a cockeyed, offbeat sort of way.

    I can bring him back to life Dan!

    First he's head, then Dr. West comes along. A needle to the back of the head with some glowing fluid and before you know it... BAM!... you have half dead zombies walking around! Awesome, awesome movie. A must have for those looking for Jeffrey Combs movies, or slightly lame sci-fi horrors.
