A group of scientists have developed the Resonator, a machine which allows whoever is within range to see beyond normal perceptible reality. But when the experiment succeeds, they are immediately attacked by terrible life forms.
Everyone's favorite mad scientist Herbert West is currently in jail after having state's evidence turned against him by his former assistant, Dan Cain. While being led away, some re-agent ... See full summary »
Tommy Dean Musset,
Following an ever-growing epidemic of zombies that have risen from the dead, two Philadelphia S.W.A.T. team members, a traffic reporter, and his television executive girlfriend seek refuge in a secluded shopping mall.
A medical student and his girlfriend become involved in a bizarre experiment into reanimating the dead conducted by the student's incorrigible housemate in this campy sendup of an H.P. Lovecraft story. The emphasis is on humour but once the dead walk, there is gore aplenty.Written by

When Dr. Halsey is killed, two of the fingers on his right hand are bitten off by a re-animated corpse. Later in the film in the padded cell, Dr. Halsey places his right hand on a wall, and all his five fingers are showing. See more »
[Struggling to lift Dr. Halsey's body onto a table]
Come on! Help me get him up.
Is he dead?
Of course! Will you give me a hand here? Now, he interrupted an important experiment in progress. Granted, it was an accident. But this is the freshest body that we could come across save of killing one ourselves, and every moment that we spend talking about it costs us results! Now will you give me a hand? Dan, we can bring him back to life.

The Australian version is uncut except that the US R-rated version was used in Queensland to obtain an M rating and avoid it being banned in that state. See more »
When i first saw re-animator in 85, i was aghast and appalled. i just didn't get it. i was a classic horror fan; so when i heard the obvious rip from psycho's theme, it irritated me even more.
well, now i'm an older, wiser horror fan. i just saw it again for the first time since 85 and i laughed my bum off! homage, homage, homage! honouring everything from hitchcock to raimi, from day of the dead to frankenstein. this in-your-face send off is a great double feature with dead alive. jeffery combs' over the top performance is reminiscent of colin clive and cronenberg found his very own ash in bruce abbott. so sit back, relax (as much as you can...) and enjoy re-animator.
