This is a revised version of a review I first published on my blog as there's no way Amazon would publish it in its original form. There are also spoilers with regards to the ownership of body parts. If you don't like spoilers, skip this review.

I printed a couple of photos in the blog and went on to say that unfortunately I couldn't find any more striking images such as the bisected man swinging along bars chasing after our anti-hero because he stole, killed and re-animated his pet rat. Or of the fight between the rat and the re-animated severed sausage. (It isn't a sausage.)

It opens with one of Dr Herbert West's failed experiments (no lower jaw but he still tries to drink from a carton of milk with messy results) killing a young woman and watched her younger brother who picks up a syringe of the glowing green re-animator serum dropped by West as he's hauled away by the police.

Fifteen years later a young doctor (the grown up younger brother and played by Jason Barry) arrives at a seedy prison (which looks suspiciously like Spain where the movie was actually made) to be the new doctor but actually to work with doctor prisoner West (the inimitable Jeffrey Combs) to refine the re-animator serum and help the world. The inmates are a bunch of psychos (who look rather Spanish which is not to say the Spanish all look like psychos) and the warden -an authoritarian lecherous sadist- is far worse than any of them -and a fine vile performance indeed from Simon Andreu who sensibly sails over the top at every opportunity. Also on the scene is Laura Olney (the talented Elsa Pataky, a well-known Spanish actress) a young journalist trying to do a piece on the prison.

Great follow up to Bride and much better IMHO. This is the uncut version in case you are wondering. Really wild stuff as always and watch for the ending of this film.
There's a 50 minute long documentary called All In The Head. It really gives a complete and comprehensive look at the entire Re-Animator franchise. You'll find out why the movies turned out the way they did. Why there hasn't been a remake yet. And you'll even learn about some Re-Animatior scripts that almost got made.
This was a last minute buy to round out a purchase and I am so glad I got it.
As always there's reversible cover art, 12 page booklet, and a fold out poster of the original cover art.
You also get the original trailer and an audio commentary by director Brian Yuzna.
A must for Re-Animator fans!

I can't believe anybody would consider this a good movie. The first twenty minutes are okay but then it just becomes dull and predictable. The first two fims are a lot better. Elsa Pataky looks lovely in it though.

Not reviewing the arrow edition which I dont own just The film itself...
I'm a massive Re-Animator fan but this is pure drivel. It features forced wooden actors; terrible dialogue; a stupid narrative; a barely dressed nurse whose only purpose is to have her clothes removed and a "comedy" drug addict who is just pathetic. It picks up near the end but it really is not Yuzna's finest hour. What a shame to waste such an opportunity to really let rip with West.

First off, this was made in Spain on a miniscule budget, and it shows. However, it's also a lot of fun, and if you enjoyed the first one, this should please you no end. Jeffrey Coombs resurrects a fan-favourite role, and there's the usual undead shenanigans and eye-popping, entrail-spurting goodness we've come to expect from Herbert West's antics. My recommendation? Get some beer, get some pizza, put your feet up and disengage your brain - you'll enjoy this a lot more.

As fan of the original 'Re-Animator', and after the disappointing sequel 'Bride of Re-Animator', I was somewhat sceptical about this third instalment in the series, but I have to admit this is an intelligent, fresh, funny, and energetic film which takes everything that made the first film great and improves on it.
Jeffrey Combs is back as mad scientist Herbert West and the storyline picks up 13 years later, where Dr West is confined in prison for his past crimes. On the arrival of Howard Phillips the new prison doctor, (who by chance was a follower of West and his research); West is invited to become his medical assistant. Now with advanced capabilities and improved ideas for re-animating the dead, West and Phillips set out to perfect the process, the only problem is they get caught up in a prison break which escalates into an all out gore filled bloody battle with the undead.
If you've never seen the original, then you'll probably want to watch 'Re-Animator' before renting 'Beyond Re-Animator', but of you were a fan of the original this is a worthy sequel and definitely worth checking out!

By Jane Aland VINE VOICE on 7 Jan. 2005
Format: DVD
After a long gap (13 years!) the classic horror film Re-Animator finally gets another sequel (this is part 3 if you're counting). While keeping the essentials of the original Beyond Re-Animator adds some new spins to the zombie formula in the form of 'nanoplasma', the missing electrical ingredient that (in theory) stops the re-animated dead from turning into rabid killers. It's important that the film pushes forward with some new ideas to keep things fresh, but I can't say I was particularly enamoured of the nanoplasma device, as it ultimately leads to some of the most cheesy and embarrassing 'body swap' moments of the film, with the warden turned into a human rat being particularly poor. Elsewhere Jeffrey Combs turns in his usual great performance as Herbert West, though his ever-unwilling sidekick Dan Cain is sadly missing, replaced here by a character called Howard Philip (obviously a nod to original inspiration HP Lovecraft). Plus points for Beyond Re-Animator are the fantastic special effects, which range from a jawless zombies wildly flapping tongue to a junkie who overdoes on re-agent literally exploding over the screen. There are also some very OTT scenes seemingly designed to make the film offensive to the mainstream. Fans of Re-Animator will find plenty of enjoyable moments here, but the film as a whole is a little to disjointed to really succeed in it's own right.
