Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: All of this, ingenious as it may be and much as it will redound to Mr. Gordon's credit in hard-core horror circles, is absolutely to be avoided by anyone not in the mood for a major bloodbath.
Fresh: Pic has a grisly sense of humor, and sometimes is so gross and over the top the film tips over into a bizarre comedy.
Fresh: It's simply the best, funniest Grand Guignol horror picture to come along in ages.
Fresh: Oh, those crazy doctors, when will they ever learn to stop messing around with the natural order of life and death?
Re-Animator should bring instant recognition to fans of the horror genre as an iconic cult movie classic...if it doesn't...watch it...and join the cult.
It's not what I expected, that's for sure!
I'm not really sure what to say about this movie. While it's special effects were B, it had a certain horror appeal that reminded me of some 1960's movies or Rocky Horror without the music. It definitely won't win any awards, but with all the rentals going up in price, this is a cool flick to watch at a normal price. You'll have to judge for yourself - I got a laugh out of it.
Excellent cult classic!
Great, great movie with a superb performance by Jeffery Combs. 80's horror movies just can't compare to some of the movies out now. Is this out on blu ray or being re-released for some significant reason?
