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.

i have always heard of this movie but never say it until now at 39 years old. I must say it is a really great film. Just the right balance of Gore/Comedy/and still gives you the chills.
A must see for any horror fan. Lots of gore, pretty good acting and quite a few laughs.
A great film. Very bloody, distinctively Lovecraft. This movie is dark and is charming in the way only 80s films can be.
I feel like people who dont even like horror would enjoy this delightful nugget of dread.
