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.

Super good classic. Pretty cool concept. Great characters. Worth a sit through for some medical gore ! Russian dead dude sounds are priceless
Just rewatched this absolute classic thanks to the Final Girl Friday podcast. It's still as great as the first time I watched it. I'm a big Jeffrey Combs fan too.
Interesting concept. A film with modern idea using vintage 'tech' or 'science' movie magic. practical effect at it best.
So happy to watch this again. Miss this kind of horror; even if it isn't intentional, it ends up being a total riot.
