I don’t feel as strongly about _Re-Animator_ as much of the horror community does. I absolutely enjoy it, recommend it, even. Just in more of a Watch-Enjoy-Done sort of way.
Very different from your typical Lovecraft fare.
_Final rating:★★★ – I personally recommend you give it a go._
In 1985 I was 15, and already a big horror movie fan. With Evil Dead, Halloween, Friday 13th, Italian horror … the genre was dynamic. Then, reading Mad Movies, I see this very gore movie inspired by a short Lovecraft tale, coming soon.
I go there at 2pm, watch the movie and end up seeing it 7 times in 3 days.
The cast gives an insane (!!!) performance, especially Jeffrey Combs of course, but having Bruce Abbott try to keep his sanity and stay alive in the horrific events. Barbara Crampton will be mainly remembered by being licked by a severed head, but she does a nice “normal” character. The couple try to save what they can (sanity and life) and are quite a counterpoint to West and his madness of overcoming death, whatever consequences there may be.
Most scenes are in the Arkham faculty, some at Dan’s apartment. This also enhances the madness of it all, with a regular setting where usually nothing wrong could happen.
The “gore” SFX still are vivid in my mind. So OK more modern SFX are done now, but those rubber body parts with liters of blood were really efficient, and I’ll add “physical”. Those computer generated very often lack the practical physicality of holding a severed hand or head they do now (must be a challenge for the actors to interact with nothing beside a green sceen.
Overall these elements create a powerfully entertaining movie.
Not for all tastes.
This movie is certainly not for everybody, but it sure is one of the better mad scientists films around. Stuart Gordon injects black comedy with over the top gore and he gets a modern horror classic. Jeffrey Combs is outstanding as Dr. Herbert West, and there are scenes that you will never forget in this one. One of my personal favorite horror films.
I like to think of Re-Animator as a prime example of the french art-form, the Grand Guignol – a puppet show meant to disturb the audience. Viewing this film as such, rather than as a straight horror film (a film that’s meant to terrify), I think raises its stature.
Taken as a horror film, Re-Animator would really not qualify as anything other than yet another gruesome sort of zombie movie. Anyone who has seen this film, though, knows that Re-Animator is not your run-of-the-mill Romero knock-off, not your ordinary horror film. It’s unique.
There’s something off-kilter about this flick, something very, very funny, and also something quite disturbing. Re-Animator (spoilers maybe), with its demonic cat, provides an instance of intense slapstick at which the audience laughs. Simultaneously, the audience must also feel revulsion both at what’s taking place on screen and at themselves. Surely, a cat, it’s neck broken for the sake of science and brought back to life only to die an even worse death is not something to laugh at. Yet it’s staged like an old 3 Stooges episode. The film-makers undoubtedly understand this, desire to make their audience uncomfortable, and do a commendable job. Like all great Grand Guignol, then, it thoroughly disturbs.
The cunnilingus performed by the severed head provides a similar moment.
Viewed as a Grand Guignol, and an experiment in creating a distraught audience, Re-Animator succeeds admirably. It’s an excellent movie, highly entertaining, and worth seeking out.
