After the Evil Dead series, the Re-Animator trilogy is probably my favorite horror-comedy franchise. Stuart Gordon's original film stands as the best blend of horror and comedy, perfectly mixing sex and gore into one hilarious adventure. I daresay it's better than any of the three Evil Dead movies. The only reason the Herbert West trilogy isn't as good as Ash's is the weak sequel Bride of the Re-Animator, a misstep between the brilliant original and the madcap nuttiness of Beyond Re-Animator. So the news that there might be a new TV show with Herbert West brings me mixed feelings. It sounds like this new show would have nothing to do with the movies, though—loosely basing itself on H.P. Lovecraft's original story instead.

Most horror geeks know Brian Yuzna as a frequent Stuart Gordon collaborator who helped to bring us Re-Animator, From Beyond, and the underrated Dolls. Younger gene freaks would also know Mr. Y from his numerous Filmax productions, which include Dagon, Rottweiler, and (of course) Beyond Re-Animator. But now, according to Big V, Brian is about to deliver a trio of 3-D horror flicks. The first will be a giant monster movie called Amphibious, the second will be Brett Leonard's Necronauts, and the third will be Richard Stanley's Cold Blooded. Now, I call this news all sorts of interesting because A) Stanley doesn't direct many films, B) Leonard has never directed a good film, and C) they're all 3-D horror movies! With monsters!
Questions: Does Danny Boyle want to direct 28 Months Later? Maybe. Will next year's Friday the 13th Part 3 DVD come in 3-D? Sure looks like it. Want »
