Re-Animator 35mm film Print Midnight Movie at Lincoln Center

Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) is a brilliant medical student who has perfected a green-glowing serum for regenerating life into dead things -- or even parts of dead things. But a corrupt superior, Dr. Carl Hill (David Gale), assumes control of West's experiments and winds up, by ghastly necessity, using the stuff on his own severed head and body. West and in-over-his-head co-worker Dan Cain (Bruce Abbott) struggle to control the now out-of-control effects of the serum, but the bone-saws and zombies complicate their plans.

This raw, bloody, low-budget horror-comedy was loosely based on stories by H.P. Lovecraft. The story deals with college med students reviving dead bodies with a serum which accidentally turns them into violent, bloodthirsty zombies. Jeffrey Combs is perfect as the obsessed Dr. West, and Bruce Abbottmakes a good naive straight-man for Combs' nerdy lunatic. The late David Gale stands out as the jealous Dr. Hill, who ends up decapitated, then re-animated and wandering around with his head in his hands, only to perform a particularly foul act upon nude scream-queen Barbara Crampton. DirectorStuart Gordon stages some impressive gore scenes and some very funny gallows humor; many considerRe-Animator as the best American splatter comedy of the '80s.

    The last time I've seen this on film was back when I was a 15 year old new schooler attending James Monroe High School in The Bronx back in 1985.
