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.Read more ›
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'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.
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!

As gory and corny as the other Reanimator fliicks, nice use of old school special effects rather than CGI. Certainly more worthwhile than many recent horror movies.Published 21 months ago by R. R. Clayton
This movie is over the top fun. If you have seen the first two, you will not be disappointed. I hope there is another sequel in the works.Published 22 months ago by feeper
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. Read morePublished on 18 Sept. 2013 by C. P. Halliday
The original Re Animator was pure trash class, the second film paled considerably, but this third outing is quite dire. Read morePublished on 1 Aug. 2013 by Colonel Decker
