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

Lovecraft and Dennis Paoli, about a doctor named Herbert West who trasnfers to a medical school in the United States to finish his research on brain life and possible re-animation. Deemed as strange from his roomate and thought as a fool by his professor, defiant Herbert goes against moral issues and so called "fact" and takes matters int... read more

Stuart Gordon’s enduring splatter classic riffs on many genres and defies logic, symbolic of most independent features from the '80s horror explosion, but supercharged by exceedingly well-written dialogue, "Re-Animator" ameliorates far above its counterparts. Based on H.P. Lovecraft’s classic terror tale ‘Herbert West – Reanimator’ and featuring dry, deadpan jokes aplenty, this zombie-la... read more

"I didn’t like the movie at first, because I found it to to be too messy, bloody, and over the top. But now, it’s one of my favourite horror films, possibly ever. "

"28.1. Blu-ray Kovin pidetty goreklassikko osoittautui jopa vähän pettymykseksi, sillä se ei oikein erinomaisten erikoistehosteiden ja muutamien hörähdysten lisäksi kummempia tarjonnut. Ottaa vähän turhan vakavasti pyrkimyksensä tummanpuhuvaan huumoriin, eikä tarvittaville sattumille löytynyt sijaa. Absurdihtavaa tarinaa tukee parhaiten, kuinka naurettavan helposti päähahmo saa kämppiksensä mukaan touhuihinsa. Elokuvamaailman varmaan tunnetuimman scoren plagiointi ja sen mittava k"

“Stuart Gordon’s enduring splatter classic riffs on many genres and defies logic, symbolic of most independent features from the '80s horror explosion, but supercharged by exceedingly well-written dialogue, "Re-Animator" ameliorates far above its counterparts. Based on H.P. Lovecraft’s classic terror tale ‘Herbert West – Reanimator’ and featuring dry, deadpan jokes aplenty, this zombie-laden, sexually graphic, insanely effective gorefest more than compensates for a lack of scientific exposition and plausibility in the plot, which centres on three students, one of whom advertises for a roommate and finds one in the form of Dr. Herbert West, the deliciously deranged mad scientist of the title. West's bizarre theories of reanimation are soon realised with the reluctant assistance of ” read more

Movies I Watched in March 2020 (30 movies items)

" Date: 3/25/2020 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-Watch Note: Nearly 35 years later and this movie is still awesome. I loved this movie ever since I first saw it on Sci-Fi or TNT (I don't remember which one) when I was a kid in the mid-late 90s. I already talked about this movie a bit in the 2018 31 Days of Horror list and I don't want to repeat myself. It's a crazy thrill ride of ultra violence, dark comedy, and horror. Go watch it if you haven't seen it already. RIP Stuart Gordon"
