Storyline

In Peru, Dr. Herbert West and Dr. Dan Cain are medical volunteers in a civil war with the assistant Francesca Danelli and they are researching how to create human life from dead tissue using wounded soldiers as guinea pigs. 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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Great Sequel
27 August 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Peru, Dr. Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) and Dr. Dan Cain (Bruce Abbott) are medical volunteers in a civil war with the assistant Francesca Danelli (Fabiana Udenio) and they are researching how to create human life from dead tissue using wounded soldiers as guinea pigs.

They return to Miskatonic Hospital and Dan treats a terminal patient, Gloria (Kathleen Kinmont), and gets close to her. When the snoopy Lt. Leslie Chapham (Claude Earl Jones) 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 (Mel Stewart) finds the head of Dr. Carl Hill (David Gale) 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.

"Bride of Re-Animator" is a great sequel of the cult "Re-Animator", with Dr. Herbert West creating some of the most weird and bizarre creatures. The last time I had seen this film was on 23 March 2000 and today I have just seen it again on VHS. The storyline is very similar to "Frankenhooker", both films released in the middle of 1990. I really do not know who might have plagiarized who, but either "Bride of Re- Animator" or "Frankenhooker" are worthwhile watching. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "A Noiva do Re-Animator" ("The Bride of the Re- Animator")

Note: On 26 June 2015, I saw this movie again.
