Re-Animator (1985)
#1
[Image: reanimator.jpg]

A medical student and his girlfriend become involved in a bizarre experiment into reanimating the dead conducted by the student's incorrigible housemate in this campy sendup of an H.P. Lovecraft story. The emphasis is on humour but once the dead walk, there is gore aplenty.

I really liked the Psycho homage throughout the film, it also didn't hold back on the gore which was surprisingly disturbing to watch. West & Dan are really likable and the whole cast had good storylines that felt full circle-ish. I would love to see the sequel.

I've always wanted to watch this but I randomly have yet too. It sounds like it's def. worth a watch, though.

Here`s to four straight years
of pre-gaming with the dead...

I haven't seen this in forever, but i did enjoy it a lot when i was younger. Funniy enough, they did a recent screening of this at an bar in Manchester - I didn't get to go but did intend to. I might have to watch this again, soon.

This was definitely a great one. I was a bit too skeezed out by one scene with Barbara Crampton, which seemed to go against the more playful tone that the rest of the film had, but Herbert West was still an outstanding villain, probably even scarier than the actual zombies in this. The zombies, too, were great, with some of the best special effects the '80s had to offer. Definitely a unique take on zombies, but a worthy one all the same.

I had so much trouble deciding whether he was a villain or not until near the end. He was definitely a compelling characters & I loved his homoerotic relationship with Dan.

This movie was defo super homoerotic. The relationship between Dan/West was very gay. I don't know if I'd consider Hebert a villain though, more like a troubled anti hero that is in over his head. The true villain is the rapey professor.

Yeah...also this. I guess killing the professor makes him a neutral evil but he definitely is just super smart, which tends to make people crazy.

I think he's chaotic neutral probably, he tends to be a hot mess but he also doesn't mean any harm (In fact he means well.) He just tends to get people into trouble when doing so.
