Re-Animator Review


A dedicated student at a medical college and his girlfriend become involved in bizarre experiments centering around the re-animation of dead tissue when an odd new student arrives on campus.

Hubert West studies include reviving the dead human brain and creates a re-animator fluid in which he injects into his subjects and raises them back from the dead. The fluid still has it’s side effects and this zombie film has great thrills thanks to Jeffrey Combs’ performance, which is stunning.

Best zombie kill scene: An unsuspecting zombie is the victim of Dr Herbert West as he uses an electric bone saw to perform heart surgery.
