The first one was much better.
Bride of Re-Animator is the sequel to Re-Animator, this time directed by Brian Yuzna. Our story kicks off with our “heroes”, Dr. Herbert West and lab assistant Dr. Dan Cain, planning to create a new life form by using parts taking from corpses. Similar to the patchwork monstrosity that our main characters create, Bride of Re-Animator is a patchwork of plot ideas stitched together to create a new movie. And I enjoyed it. What keeps this film from falling apart at its seams are its special effects and characters. The film takes a premise used at the end of the original film (Herbert’s Re-Agent is able to bring back individual body parts back to life) and runs with it. A lot of the scenes are just set ups for the teams of Screaming Mad George Inc. and K.N.B Effects to think of weird body part combinations. Like a leg being attached to an arm or a spider creature made of fingers and an eye-ball. For the cast, Jeffery Combs and Bruce Abbot return to reprise their roles as Herbert West and Dan Cain respectfully. Even David Gale comes back as the head of plagiarist Carl Hill. Jeffery Combs in particular plays the role of his life in Dr. Herbert West who chews every bit of scenery he is in. But the movie does have its issues. Chiefly in plots that start and end as soon as they begin, which makes you think why some of them are even in the movie. As great as David Gale’s Carl Hill is, his story in the film is about 10 minutes, which concludes at the end when he shows up to end the movie. The original Re-Animator was definitely a tighter film and is still my favorite, but Bride of Re-Animator is a grotesque stunning mistress of her own.
Flying Dead Heads...Um yes please!! I just love Dr. West!! Just as good as the 1st movie!!
