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.
There is panic throughout the nation as the dead suddenly come back to life. The film follows a group of characters who barricade themselves in an old farmhouse in an attempt to remain safe from these bloodthirsty, flesh-eating monsters.
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

The opening credits sequence pays visual homage to Saul Bass' work in Hitchcock's Vertigo (1958). See more »
In the very first sequence two signs can be seen next to the locked door. The first one reads 'Dr. Gruber Ghirurg'. The word 'Ghirurg' doesn't exist in German. The correct spelling is 'Chirurg' ('surgeon'). The sign below shows the three lines 'GEHIRN FORSCHUNGSL LABOR' ('brain research laboratory'). The first 'L' doesn't belong there. And as 'Gehirnforschungslabor' is in fact one word in German it should be hyphenated when wrapped. See more »
The Re-animator is one of those movies that if you like gore and nudity your going to love it. Jeffery Combs is great as Dr Herbert West the crazy med student who can re-animate the dead. It is in really funny in dark humor sort of way. All the gore effects are top notch. Avoid the R rated version because you miss almost all the gore and some of the nudity. This is based on H.P. Lovecraft story which was also really good. This isn't the only adaptation of Lovecraft the Stuart Gordon has done, he also did from beyond (which I still need to see) And Dreams in witch house for the masters of horror show and that was really good too. The best part of all is that Gordon is doing another one and hopeful it will be as good as this one.
