If you haven′t seen Re-Animator, what the bloody heck are you waiting for? Stop reading this post and go and watch it.
But seriously, it′s a great film, one that every lover of zombies should see at one point.
A dedicated student at a medical college and his girlfriend become involved in bizarre experiments centering around the re-animation of dead tissue when an odd new student arrives on campus.
My Rating: A
Interesting Facts: The special effects department went through 25 gallons of fake blood during the shoot; Stuart Gordon and Dennis Paoli originally intended to be faithful to H.P. Lovecraft’s story, but the film ultimately has little in common with the story, which was intended to be a parody of Frankenstein; and the “brains” in the severed head were made up of steer meat by-products, ground beef and fake blood and when they shot the scene in the autopsy room with the severed head being thrown out the door and then smashing onto the hallway wall, the crew were all behind the cameras with garbage bags over their clothes because no one knew just how much the brains would splatter.
And now it’s time for the trailer…
