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.

Cast: Jeffrey Combs, Bruce Abbott, Barbara Crampton
I think this has become my favourite horror movie.
A classic in campy horror/comedy, its got great imagery, a fantastically paced story, and a memorable set of characters. DO NOT SKIP THIS ONE
we have Mr Lovecraft to thank for this beautiful adaptation of his original short story. If you like this then check out another of his works entitled Dagon.
Surprisingly great effects and a fun performance from Jeffrey Combs. I didn't really like the main antagonist but loved this overall.
Darkly comedic, almost ridiculous, but overall compelling 80s horror. So fun - worth watching multiple times.
