RE-ANIMATOR
1985, AGFA, 86 min, USA, Dir: Stuart Gordon

Adapted from the H.P. Lovecraft tale of Herbert West, this mind-bending, darkly funny horror thriller was a breakout hit, establishing newcomer director Stuart Gordon as a force to be reckoned with. Impetuous researcher Jeffrey Combs develops a serum that can bring back the dead, something that his new roommate (Bruce Abbott) hadn’t exactly bargained for. Delivers on every front with laughs, shocks and genuine shivers escalating until the outrageous, gore-drenched finale. With Barbara Crampton and David Gale.
