    Such a wild a wacky sequel! It actually further advances the mythology in some interesting ways, which is more than I could say for the last one. There is some awful acting from a few actors that are forced into the production, but that doesn't stop this from being loads of fun.

    I quite liked this third Re-Animator film, largely thanks to another great performance by Jeffrey Combs, who again returns as mad scientist Herbert West. The story picks up with Herbert West in prison for his acts in the previous films, when a new prison doctor enters the scene with an interest in helping West continue his research. I think what made this sequel so enjoyable is that besides the typically fun re-animation story elements (undead monstrosities, leering body parts, dark twisted humor, etc.) you also get entertaining prison-film archetypes (evil warden, colorful convicts, the inevitable prison riot, etc.). This entry was directed by Bryan Yuzna (who produced the original film and directed the weak second film), who at the time was working out of Spain producing some terrifically fun and varied low budget horror films under the Fantastic Factory banner for Filmax. Yuzna gets the tone just right here, nicely matching the shock and black humor of the original film. But Combs as West is the real hero of the film and is just a delight in every scene. The main thing I miss about this sequel is the absence of a score by composer Richard Band. Overall, this film is highly recommended for fans of the original.

    Way more over-the-top, way more entertaining than the first. Lot of laughs, and much better setting this time around (prison instead of med school). A rare sequel that tops the original. And Marvel comic movies have nothing on end-of-credits scenes compared to Beyond Re-Animator; that mouse vs. penis fight scene? Had me laughing my ass off.

    What can I say im a sucker for the Re Animator series even if this is the worst one. Very much in the same vein as Evil Dead 2 with a very perverted sense of humor. It may be mediocre in comparison to the first installment or Bride of Re Animator but it's still got a good amount of gore and laughs so it's totally worth the watch.

    It's cheap... very cheap. That's to be expected since this was a direct-to-Sci-Fi-Channel movie. For that, it's actually one of the better and more memorable ones (along with Dog Soldiers and Sharknado). However, it's just a retread with basically the same exact stuff happening, only this time in a prison. There are really no new twists, other than Dr. West discovering how to make the zombies human again by giving them soul medicine or something. It was kind of dumb. It's a basic Brian Yuzna movie with some nice effects, cheap looking sets, and blondes. It could have been worse, and that's the highest praise it can get. Only worth checking out if you still need a Re-Animator fix after the first two movies.

    Similar for sure, but nowhere near the pure awesomeness of the original. Hilarous, yet unnecessary, but again hilarious. The story drags on forever by throwing in scenes based soley on shock value, making it seem like each scene is an attempt to out do the last in craziness. If you liked the first film enough you will find some good in this one and if you are just looking for a weird movie to pass the time this will do. Caution: A rat fights a penis in this movie!!
