They return to Miskatonic Hospital and Dan treats a terminal patient, Gloria, and gets close to her. When the snoopy Lt. Leslie Chapham investigates the Miskatonic Massacre, he learns that body parts are missing in the morgue, and Herbert and Dan become his prime suspects. But Herbert kills the lieutenant and revives him with the serum. Meanwhile, Dr. Graves finds the head of Dr. Carl Hill and the green substance that the deceased doctor stole from Herbert, and uses the serum to resurrect Dr. Hill's head. When Gloria dies, Herbert and Dan use her head, with Meg's heart and parts of other women to create the perfect woman. But Lt. Chapham teams up with Dr. Hill to seek revenge against the crazy scientists. Written by

This reworking of The Bride Of Frankenstein does not match the original Re-Animator, however it is still a very watchable film. Director Brian Yukuza gathered together most of the cast of the original to make this more gory sequel. The film, to its credit, has several storylines including Dan Cain's attempts to revive his old-girlfriend and Herbert West's desire to fuse body parts into new grotesque combinations. Both continue to use West's glowing green slime. Furthermore, a renegade cop is after this dynamic duo; suspecting them of the hospital massacre at the end of the first film. Oh ya, Dr. Hill is back too... he - predictably - wants revenge. Unfortunately the film's juggling of these various plots results in several shotgun blast sized plot holes. Oh well, the final 30 min. is really good, although the conclusion is somewhat weak. In the years following two similar themed, though better, films have been made: Frankenhooker & The Bride Of Chucky. Skeeter says check them out - and gives Bride of the Re-Animator 7 for 10. Oh ya, by the way, in this one there is no head giving head.
