Watch Re-animator - Alternative Versions.
Most of the cheap or not so cheaply made horror films these days are
more than a tedious exercise in how to bump off as many teenagers in as
different ways as one can imagine in ninety minutes or less. One need
watch recent films such as Wrong Turn or the remake of Texas Chainsaw
Massacre to realize how far the horror genre has fallen. Once John
Carpenter made the first Halloween film, we have been subject to an
series of copy cat films whose only purpose seems to be finding an
imaginative way to slice and dice the local teenage population. All of
Freddies, Jasons, and Michael Myers films combined don't come close to
having an ounce of the entertainment and imagination of Producer Brian
and Director and Writer Stuart Gordon's Re-animator.
Professor Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) is a scientist who has discovered a
formula which brings the dead back to life by reanimating their tissue.
After an experiment in Switzerland goes awry, he moves to Miskatonic
University to continue his experiments. One thing Professor West isn't
that is modest. He even takes a few moments to ridicule a professor, Dr.
Carl Hill (David Gale) when he disagrees with him about when death
occurs. He eventually rents a room from fellow student Dan Cain (Bruce
Abbot). Dan is dating Megan Halsey (Barbara Crampton) who is the
of the college dean, Alan Halsey (Robert Sampson). What Dan doesn't know
that the aforementioned Dr. Hill has a perverted eye on Megan also. We
this because of the sleazy stares Dr. Hill eyeballs her with when ever
around. Think of Megan as being an overage Lolita and Dr. Hill as Humbert
Humbert and you've got the idea. All of this is not window dressing as it
would be in some other films. It all comes into play very nicely. It
without saying that sooner or later, Dr. West will be making good use of
reanimation formula, in ways only those with the most grotesque sense of
humor can imagine. To say any more than that would deny you of the true
pleasures of this film.
How can a film that is so explicitly graphic and perverted in nature be
It's because every person involved in the making of Re-Animator was smart
enough not to take it too seriously themselves. Everything in this film
so wildly over the top, that you can't help but chuckle right along with
them as they wink their eye at you. There may be certain moments of the
film that would normally sicken even the most hardcore horror film
but since Yuzna and Gordon never once let Re-animator sink into the
by the numbers game of other films of these nature, these same scenes
intentionally cartoonish and silly.
But more than anything, this film owes it's life to it's cast. Jeffrey
Combs as Herbert West should serve as the model for anyone wanting to make
film involving a mad or semi-mad scientist. Given this kind of role,
is many an actor who would have been tempted to ham it up and alas in many
horror films they do just that. However, when Combs seems to imply that
is the smartest man on the planet and the rest of us are Neanderthal, we
don't hate him for this implication at all. He is so good at making us
believe he is the smartest man since Einstein and we are all nothing but
Cro-magnon man by comparison that we love him for it just the same. He
be crazy, but he's a fun kind of crazy.
David Gale as the smarmy Dr. Hill, is a joy to watch also. He has some of
the most ridiculous scenes in the film yet somehow manages to keep a
straight face through it all. He gives new life to the old saying about
losing your head over a piece of tail.
Bruce Abbot as Dan Cain is the perfect contrast for West. He is a
arrow, is madly in love with Megan, yet somehow lets himself become
in West's experiments. Abbot also is smart enough to know that the center
of this film is West, and never once overplays his role to try and
overshadow him. As for Barbara Crampton, she should have won some kind of
award, just for the abuse the producers put her through as Megan. Is
an award for most abuse of a female by the walking dead?
Re-animator was made on a budget of less than a million dollars which is
truly remarkable. There isn't a film budget in the world though that can
replace the imagination and daring rampant through out Re-Animator. And
when a horror film is that well done, and is something all the Freddies,
Jasons, And Michael Myers can only dream about, I have no choice but to
it my grade which for Re-Animator is an A.
