A guilty pleasure gem in the vein of lovecraft's re-animator
28 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie has all the elements of a classic horror flick which tetter-totters into the realm of a cult classic! The actor John Mackay who plays Dr. Gregory Ashton is a gifted actor whose obvious stellar acting talents, unfortunately, were never quite tapped. He really sets the stage through his determination, frustration and burning of the midnight oil to generate the elixir of regenerated youth. Dr. Germaine is the thorn in Dr. Gregory Ashton's side in his unrelenting pursuit of this scientific breakthrough! The movie in a nutshell plays out where an aging movie actress desires to reassume the beauty and fame she had in her younger years and Dr. Ashton's sole purpose of his research is to make her wishes come true. Now once, he makes her youthful again and wants to publish his findings she uses her new sensuality to keep him quiet through seductive measures. Next, now this goes out to anybody out there-Does anybody have any music or even heard of the Poison Dolly's female metal band that performs in the movie? All in all, if it had a bigger budget or was remade today with the movie industries newer special effects technology and so forth it might grab a wider audience. I titled this review with a nod toward Lovecraft's work of Herbert West-Reanimator which by the way was a movie based on that work from the 80's!
