Re-Animator (1985)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

7 / 10
This is one of my wife's favourite films and while I don't love it as much as she does, I still find it to be a very good movie. I know very little about H.P. Lovecraft and the short story that this movie is based upon but while this movie has a serious tone as a whole, it is almost as equally silly as there are plenty of zany and wacky scenes with plenty of dark humour. It is also one of those films that has its own catchy theme music which is something modern cinema seems to be slightly lacking.
Re-Animator (1985)
Review by Alex Martel

8 / 10
A highly disturbing, yet deliriously funny black comedy that dares to go too far.

Loosely adapted from an H.P. Lovecraft story, Re-animator is the kind of movie that has to be watched to be believed. You will go from laughing in one scene to squirming uncomfortably in your seat in the next.

Some questionable puppetry only serve to enhance the humor and the performances are over the top in the best possible way. This is a fun one that rivals Evil Dead 2's insanity.
