Movie Info

Once again tampering with mother nature to disastrous results, Dr. Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) continues his research in director Brian Yuzna's second sequel to the 1985 splatter classic Re-Animator. Currently serving time in a maximum security prison for his previous exploits, West's limited prison-cell experiments are suddenly interrupted by the arrival of Howard Phillips (Jason Barry), the new prison doctor and the brother of the girl who suffered from West's experiments 13 years earlier. Knowledgeable of West's previous experiments and eager to assist the mad doctor in continuing his studies, the naive Phillips discovers that West's continued studies have revealed a more effective means of bringing back the dead -- the removal of an individual's Neuroplasm, or soul, and the injection of it into a newly reanimated corpse. An electrical phenomenon discharged at the moment of death, with the discovery of the Neuroplasm West may have finally discovered the missing link to effectively bringing life to death. Or not.

    An interesting gorefest

    Well, well, third entry in the Re-Animator franchise and Dr Hebert West is doing what he's doing best, reanimating dead tissue. This is a well executed third entry, and it manages to keep everything that you'd expect from a Re-Animator film. What makes this film worth watching is the gore itself, beautiful, disgusting and downright off the wall. This film is pure carnage and Re-Animator fans will enjoy this film. A terrific horror comedy, that considering is a third entry to a film that is deemed a horror classic, this film works well at establishing what you'd expect, and it goes beyond that. The films' acting is questionable of course, only Jeffrey Combs as Hebert West, the mad scientist trying to find a cure for death is the only talent4ed actor in this film. Comb's performance delivers, and he makes West one of the best horror villains in the genres history. Of course Beyond Re-Animator is nothing compared to the first, but for a third entry, it's a pretty good one at that. The film will appeal to the fans of the first. Considering that by the second sequel, a franchise looses its spark, Re-Animator hasn't lost anything. The gore and the wacky humor are still there, and the film is pretty entertaining. However considering that I'm such a fan of the original, I think that this third entry keeps every element intact. But of course this third entry will never outdo the original. A good entry in the series, and a memorable horror comedy too.

    What I said about 'Bride of Re-Animator' works here, too.

    A good first half let down by a gory yet aimless second half. I missed #2 'Bride of Re-Animator' so I don't know what progression Herbert West made with his reagent, but here he believes that trapping the nanoplasm that escapes the body upon death is the answer. Maybe someday, doctor.
