Summer is my horror movie season.
Just started it with a classic called Re-Animator.

Awesome, gory and funny movie.
Jeffrey Combs does a great job as Herbert West.
And i love the theme score by Richard Band (some Bernard Herrmann loan there of course).

Director Stuart Gordon was great in the 80s.

How can you have a horror season!?! Horror should be every single day of ya life  -  -  -

But yeah, great film [Smile]

I thought Bride Of Re-Animator was a real let down. I recorded the third film, Beyond Re-Animator off the tele a while ago but haven't gotten around to it yet. Anyone seen it?

one of my favorite movies ever.

i like the gif above. i met jeffrey combs at a fangoria festival in nyc back in the early 90's and i had a picture of that scene signed by him. he wrote "he doesn't seem to like me! why?" then signed it. it's hanging up at work.

bride of was ok, not great, but then again, it couldn't compete with the first one. never saw the third one.

I guess summer is my horror season also Atomik! lol

Since Zach and Ronnie brought this up on the Last 3 next 3 thread I watched it.

Zach said "it's my favorite zombie movie"
Ronnie said "it kicks butt"

How could I not watch it???

I really enjoyed it......it was campy, gory......just enough story to keep it going.......and i've never been so scared of naked zombies in my life!!! and i'll say it in the nicest way possible......the "lack of shaving" that was popular in the 80s [Wink] scarrrrrrrrrrrrry.........

Saw this in the theater-was good though the "head" guy gets a little naughty from what I remember [Roll Eyes] The Dr. was very Thomas Dolby-ish, and Barbara Crampton did quite an interesting spread for Playboy shortly after. Fun stuff-not sure it's what H.P. had in mind though!

Muffy, I'm glad you took mine and Ronnie's suggestions on Re-Animator. It's a perfect horror/comedy hybrid that mixes '50s mad science with '80s gore like no other movie. Jeffrey Combs totally stole the show with his performance as Herbert West. I though he had the best lines in the movie. Check out these choice quotes:

I was busy pushing bodies around as you well know and what would a note say, Dan? "Cat dead, details later"? (This one is my personal favorite)

Who's going to believe a talking head? Get a job in a sideshow.

Do you agree that he's dead now? (After dropping Megan's dead cat on the table)

Thanks for sharing that Barbara Crampton pic, Johnny Roarke. She was quite the looker in both Re-Animator and From Beyond. I'm more of a brunettes guy (Jill Whitlow, Stacey Nelkin, Phoebe Cates, etc.), but Barbara's a fox too.

One thing I've always liked best about Re-Animator is how it presents zombies in a totally different light from the Romero flesh-eaters or voodoo slaves. Here they're revived through science and can kill people but can't spread their condition by biting them. That's not to say I don't like straightforward zombie movies, but sometimes you need a break from the norm.

Re-animator was the first dvd I ever bought!
August '98 when dvd wasn't even out over here (region one ahhhhh).
Love this film, it's the right balance of horror and black humour [Smile]

Gordon/Yuzna/Paoli hit all the right notes with "Re-Animator" and "From Beyond." The late, great critic Pauline Kael once said that very few directors can pull off the trick of making the horror funny and simultaneously having the comedy heighten the horror. This is just about perfect in tone. "Get a job in a sideshow" is my favorite quote. Hilarious. [Smile]
