I am a sucker for any H.P. Lovecraft film and this is one of the best, Re-Animator! Here we have a mad scientist, the undead, and a little gore action. I mean there's a reason why this is considered one of the greatest cult horror films of all time. Really cool effects and a pretty solid storyline, deliver a really great horror film and what i consider to be one of the top scary movies of all time.

Dr. Herbert West, played by Jeffrey Combs, is a student who is kicked out of his studies from Switzerland. He is accepted to a University in New England, and starts turning his room mates basement into a laboratory so that he can study his Dead Re-Animation formula. Problems arise when West's room mate's girlfriend's cat goes missing, only to be discovered dead and reanimated by West. From there we have evil scientists trying to steal formulas and perverted headless guys trying to cozy up to co-eds.

This is really one of the greatest horror movies of all time, it was very low budget but it really shines though. Jeffery Combs turns in a great performance, David Gale as well. This kind of gives you a realistic sense of Zombies, with them scientifically being re-animated. I would have to give this movie the coveted 8/10. I highly recommend this and it is taking a spot on my 1001 Horror movies you need to see before you die.

It will Re-Animate your love for Horror
