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.

glad I finally watched this. crazy fun flick.
A excellent classic 80's bodily horror film for all gore hounds
I think only Stuart Gordon ever understood Lovecraft cinematically. The wry humor is a winner.
Always a classic.
Truly one of the classics, a perfect representation of the era. It absolutely is a camp-fest, but this is just a backdrop for a fun, engaging film, and not a gimmick trying to hold up an entire feature, which you'll sometimes see in this type of movie. Originally rated X, there are moments here that still shock, but mostly it's gory, weird fun.
