An entertaining change for a horror film
26 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Rejuvenatrix isn't really a proper horror film in my eyes, but it makes a nice change from the norm and is entertaining throughout. The story involves an old wealthy woman who wants to be young again, and is investing vast amounts of money in a "serum" that will make her young. She gets her wish, but the catch is that after the serum wears off, she is transformed into an old hag with a taste for blood. There are some respectable gore scenes such as a woman's brain being pulled from her head, and a nurse splattered against a wall. But the tone of Rejuvenatrix is different from a slasher film so these scenes don't seem as cool as they normally would. Still this is thoroughly entertaining, it never really gets boring, and there's some decent gore

  • what more can you ask for? It also provides some interesting views on


the debate of 'growing old gracefully'.

I wouldn't recommend this to slasher fans, but those who love all styles of horror film should enjoy it.
