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.

Absolutely must see
One of the absolute best 80’s splatter Flix. Rub it in your eyes.
This movie's an old favorite of mine and it kicks all kinds of ass. Every actor in this is fantastic, save for the male lead, who's admittedly just kinda there. Also it's confusing that the guy's girlfriend's father isn't cool with them being in a physical relationship, despite them both being adults, and the aforementioned guy being a promising med student. Kinda makes me think that originally the lead was gonna be a black guy or something but the studio chickened out. That's just baseless speculation tho, and the only interesting thing I have to say about this movie other than HOLY HELL you need to check this one out I mean the effects, music, performances, script, all top fucking notch across the board! Also - Barbara. Fucking. Crampton. You'll see what I mean!
One of the greatest films ever made
Good one kind of like pet cementary
