Directed by Stuart Gordon
This classic ‘80s cult horror hit follows a student who brings the dead back to life. Herbert West (the brilliant Jeffrey Combs) has just enrolled at a new school after an attempt to revive a former professor went very wrong. Convinced he’s on the verge of a breakthrough, West sneaks into the morgue and revives a corpse, and that’s where the terror—and comedy—begins. RE-ANIMATOR was the first, and still the best, of Stuart Gordon’s gruesome (and raunchy) H.P. Lovecraft adaptations. 30 years later, it remains essential viewing for any true horror fan. Contains violence and gore.

It's fine, just didn't really work for me for some reason. The one dude trying to do stuff while decapitated was pretty hilariously awesome, tho.
Classic, fun, and I watch it all the time. A great time especially with friends.
So worth the watch.
I'd never seen, nor heard of this movie before, but I realise now I've been missing out! Fast-paced, well acted and spectacularly gruesome. There's really never a dull moment in this one. Highly recommend!
Even better than Frankenstein.
