Blu-ray Review – Bride of Re-Animator (1989)

11 April 2016 3:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bride of Re-Animator, 1989.

Directed by Brian Yuzna.

Starring Jeffrey Combs, Bruce Abbott, David Gale, Claude Earl Jones, Fabiana Udenio, Kathleen Kinmont, Mel Stewart.

Synopsis:

Herbert West and his assistant Dan Cain discover how to re-animate dead tissue from individual body parts and set about creating their own ‘perfect’ woman.

Right then, now we’re talking. You can forget all of that found footage, melting ghost face, jump-scare-every-few-minutes nonsense that passes for horror at the moment as Arrow Video are bringing out the big guns with this dual format special edition of Bride of Re-Animator, Brian Yuzna’s sequel to Stuart Gordon’s horror comedy classic Re-Animator.

Despite being based on H.P. Lovecraft’s Herbert West – Reanimator short story, Re-Animator was essentially Frankenstein retold for the 1980s, with Jeffrey Combs’ Herbert West chillingly close to Peter Cushing’s matter-of-fact take on Baron Frankenstein and played totally serious against a backdrop of absurdity and over-the-top splatter. »
