Synopsis:
The night that medical student Dan Cain discovered his pet cat, Rufus, dead in his roommates fridge was just the beginning. Before long Dan, and his beloved girlfriend, Megan, become involved in the macabre experiments of his roommate, the sinister Dr. Herbert West, who has created a serum that can bring both brain and body back from the dead. The immoral scientific methods of Dr. West provide the Dean of the medical school with reason to expel West and force Cain out of the hospital. Undeterred, West and Cain continue with their experiments in the hospital's morgue - restoring life to an unlimited supply of fresh corpses.
However, a chilling side effect to West's discovery leads to a seemingly endless night of mind-bending terror and unthinkable madness.

Spoiler Alert
21/03/2009

Re-animator is one of those rare films that prospered on video and laserdisc, slowly gaining appreciation through word of mouth. The cast seem to have a great time with the outrageous script (inspired by H.P. Lovecraft), plentiful gore and strange predicaments they find themselves in. It is far from art, but unlike most of the video nasties it sat alongside, there is a real charm and persistent strand of humour here. The censors and director, reigning in the boundaries of taste when it overstepped the mark, have cut the film at times to ribbons. Whatever version you find, it is clear this fast paced film is above average horror fare, with solid performances and some solid effects.
