I can't figure out why I've not seen this one until now. Well now I can say I have. It's about time. Thank goodness for Netflix. I can't believe I've never seen any of horror legend Stuart Gordon's horror movies. I have only seen his writing with Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. I haven't seen any of Dennis Paoli's films either since it seems that he works solely with Gordon. This is the only credit Will... read more

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"Among the great debuts of the 1980s, Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator landed like a rusty fork in the eye of the sterile values trafficked by Reagan’s America—a breathless cornucopia of premarital sex, mutilated cats, bloody entrails, zombies, and, to quote Matt Zoller Seitz, “Barbara Crampton being subjected to the most ridiculous visual pun of all time.” Where it stands above so many of similar aim is in its sincere affection for its characters and refreshing abstention from irony. Like F"

31 Days of Horror (Halloween) 2018 (31 movies items)

" Date: 10/17/2018 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-watch Note: I loved this movie ever since I saw the movie on late night cable over 20 years ago. This movie still holds up well and everything about this movie is awesome. The story, characters, the gore, the dark humor and the over top violence makes this movie fantastic to watch. What has stuck with me through the years after seeing this movie so many times is just how impressive the special effects are. The effects looked just as impressive today as the"

"Saw this about 10 years ago for first time while drinking with friends so most of it was "new" material. This is just gory fun film and has some nice practical effect work/ and some not so high quality ones too."

Miika's Movie Diary - 2017 (250 movies items)

"25.12, DVD, rewatch Jeffrey Combs herättelee kuolleita henkiin, mistä seuraa kommelluksia. Juuri sopivissa määrin niin uskottava kuin koominenkin, ja hienoja body-horror-tehosteitakin tällä on tarjottavana."

2017 Horror Journal (47 movies items)

" This is good fun for an evening of gore, and surprisingly the acting, direction and characters are all spot on, making this a fairly serious horror film with a handful of effective, memorable moments. But the uneven tone and unintentional cheesiness hold it back from being the classic it could've been. Still more than worth a look for horror fans of all kinds."
