This original landmark is a refreshing, not-to-be-missed take on a classic tale of science gone too far.

Most genre filmmakers go their whole careers without making something have as delirious and dazzling as Stuart Gordon did right in his debut.

The film is all kinds of ridiculous, but if you like campy horror...
November 8, 2018
With its combination of gross-out horror, ridiculous comedy, over the top scenes, and subtle undercurrents, Re-Animator manages to be many things at once.

What comes out the other side is pure, disreputable zombie fun.

Re-Animator is a cult classic for good reason. Whatever it lacks in the scares, it greatly makes up for in weirdness and humor. It's a fun story with a bizarre cast of characters.
July 16, 2018
Favours gore, fun and laughs over any serious contemplation of the underlying themes, and it's never anything less than shlockily entertaining.
June 26, 2018
It's remarkable that, over 30 years since its release, Re-Animator still stands as the best film-adaptation of any H.P. Lovecraft story to date.
April 11, 2018
An all-time classic of the horror world, slapping an added level of gore and dark humour to the already bloodstained landscape of 1980s horror.
October 18, 2017
A bona fide classic of '80s horror, and one of the funniest splatter-comedies of all time.
November 18, 2016
Full of black humor and startling shocks, the feature film debut of experimental theater director Gordon is arguably his best and easily his most fun (a kinky, sick sort of fun, mind you) ...
October 10, 2015
A classic ground-breaking Grand Guignol horror picture.

Re-Animator is splatter heaven. Based on the sci-fi novel by H.P. Lovecraft, Re-Animator's gore is exceeded only by its wit.
July 31, 2015
To call "Re-Animator" campy and leave it at that seems a knee-jerk reaction to discredit, or disregard, the clear skill behind an excellent American horror movie. Even at its most outrageous, it's controlled by a steady, confident hand with a plan.
January 14, 2015
a retelling of Frankenstein with a psychosexual spin... an infectiously fun foray into science at its most insane and least ethical, as the mind's higher goals are repeatedly driven by the body's basest desires.
October 7, 2013
A ground-breaking horror/black comedy that reintroduced HP Lovecraft to a new generation, and set a new level as to how far on-screen outrageousness could go.
October 6, 2013
Because Re-Animator is so poorly acted and directed (by Stuart Gordon, whose first film this is), there is no tension to break. So the gruesome scenes are just clinical and dull.
October 6, 2013
It's simply the best, funniest Grand Guignol horror picture to come along in ages.
October 6, 2013
Oh, those crazy doctors, when will they ever learn to stop messing around with the natural order of life and death?
April 26, 2013
I definitely see its appeal and influence. It's tasteless, shameless, and nasty. And I mean that in the most positive way.
