Product Description

Amazon.ca

Stuart Gordon's adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's Herbert West: Re-Animator puts a Night of the Living Dead spin on the classic Frankenstein story. Jeffrey Combs furrows his brow and bugs his eyes as the preternaturally intense Herbert West, a maverick medical student whose gory, gooey experiments cause bloody corpses and body parts to jerk to life. Bruce Abbot is the studious roommate drawn into his extracurricular experiments, which soon involve the dean's daughter (the frequently naked Barbara Crampton) and the college's cadaverous, calculating star professor (David Gale), who literally loses his head over a battle for West's discovery. In this world, that's only a minor setback. Charged with sick gallows humor and a ghoulish gallery of undead beasties, Re-Animator, like Evil Dead II, is one of the most inspired and inventive--and funniest--horror films of the 1980s. Combs, Abbot, and Gale reunite for the almost-as-entertaining sequel Bride of Re-Animator. --Sean Axmaker

What can be said about Re-Animator that has not been said already? I remember seeing this as a kid of about 10, back in 1988 and it really put the hook in me. It's one of those rare horror films that creates a really cool atmosphere and manages to run with it.
The story, for anyone who dosen't know, or can't figure it out based on the title and the films cover, is based on the creation of a serum that brings the dead back to life, hence the films title. The problem is that once bought back to life, the dead are absolutely crazy, and this is based on the dosage of the serum that is given to them. The film follows the exploits of Herbert West and his unwitting partner in crime, Dan Cain, as they try to perfect the Re-Animation process, causing the deaths of several others along the way.
By todays standards some of the horror effects are pretty campy, but that is a really small criticism, as the peformances by the main cast (in particular Jeffery Combs as the titular Herbert West)make up for any aging in this department.
The Melinium Edition of this DVD is packed with every feature that a fan of this film could want. Interviews with key members of the production crew, which unlike many such features on other DVD's actually provide insights into the process undertaken to make and market this film. There are also two very good audio commentaries on the first disc, promotional materials (5 amusing TV spots and a theatrical trailer)a stills gallery (roughly 50 pictures)and Cast and Crew biographies and filmographies. The 16 extended scenes are interesting, but in most cases it is easy to see why certain material was either cut, or re-shot in an edited format. The deletted scene is interesting but dosen't seem to gel with the finished film.

Thanks to my horror friends I've been corrupted to see this film. The one who had sat me down firmly and push this disc across the table was a man by the name of Chris... yes Chris Blackshere Why? Because he has feed the friendly pack his disgusting thought out recipe with this film. I have just seen "Re-animator" for the first time and thought why the 80's have to end. Horror movies are not made like this anymore and I enjoyed this film. I can see why the "Re-Animator" is an all-time great cult classic. It's a re-telling of the Frankenstein story that is simply out to provide a fun story, some good gore, and a wickedly droll sense of humor.

Based on a story by H. P. Lovecraft we have Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs), who is a scientist that has this dream. After testing his "Re-Animator" serum on a doctor in Switzerland, he comes to the USA hoping to try his experiments on the dead at Miskatonic University in Boston. He gets help from a young medical student named Dan Cain (Bruce Abbott), who is seeing Megan Halsey (Barbara Crampton) who just happens to be the daughter of Dean Halsey (Robert Sampson), the dean of the university. Along the way Dr. Carl Hill (David Gale) gets involved and soon mayhem breaks out.

This should be considered standard viewing for any true horror fan--especially zombie film lovers. I tell you that cat scene had me rolling and I couldn't stop myself from laughing. This movie has all of the splendor and charm that came with 80's B-horror. There is lots of blood and gore, fantastic makeup and no questionable CGI. Bruce Abbott as the good doctor and Jeffrey Combs as the mad Re-animator himself are just so fun to watch on screen. Their arguments alone are entertaining.

Finally the only version you will ever need of this horror classic has been released. It has never looked or sounded better. Up until now, the unrated version has been tough to find anywhere. The bonus materials are also top notch. I would have to say that this is one of the top 10 DVD's out there right now. No complaints here. Enjoy!

Strange things are happening at Miskatonic Medical school. All was well until Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) showed up. He is an odd looking / odder acting man with insane ideas about re-animating the dead. West moves in with med student Dan Cain (Bruce Abbott) and his cat, Rufus. Unbeknownst to Dan, West is conducting his unholy experiments in the basement. One night, Dan's girlfriend Megan (Barbara "Where are my clothes?" Crampton) notices that Rufus is missing. She finds him in West's refrigerator, looking like a road-kill sandwich. Later that night, Dan is awakened by sounds that still drop my body temperature when I recall them! Hideous howls and screeches ring throughout the house. Dan grabs a baseball bat and investigates, only to find West in his basement laboratory, battling a re-animated and VERY ticked-off Rufus! With Dan's help, Rufus is vanquished, and used to redecorate the walls. West re-animates the poor feline a second time with his glowing, green "re-agent" serum to prove to Dan that he means business (or, that he really hates cats). Dan is forced to help Herbert when he threatens to tell the dean (Robert Sampson) that Dan is sleeping with his daughter. One thing leads to another, and the diabolical duo end up in the morgue, re-animating a cadaver. Learning nothing from the Rufus fiasco, our heroes get thrown around the room by a convulsing, zombified madman! Dean Halsey shows up and gets himself squished, leading to his own re-animation. Herbert makes up a story about the dean attacking them for no apparent reason. Convinced he's gone nuts, the dean is put under the care of Dr. Hill (David Gale), a brilliant, slimeball of a brain-surgeon, who keeps Halsey locked up in his office for "observation" and lobotomizes him.Read more ›
