Stuart Gordon's adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's Herbert West: Re-Animator puts a Night of the Living Dead spin on the classic Frankenstein story. Jeffrey Combs furrows his brow and bugs his eyes as the preternaturally intense Herbert West, a maverick medical student whose gory, gooey experiments cause bloody corpses and body parts to jerk to life. Bruce Abbot is the studious roommate drawn into his extracurricular experiments, which soon involve the dean's daughter (the frequently naked Barbara Crampton) and the college's cadaverous, calculating star professor (David Gale), who literally loses his head over a battle for West's discovery. In this world, that's only a minor setback. Charged with sick gallows humor and a ghoulish gallery of undead beasties, Re-Animator, like Evil Dead II, is one of the most inspired and inventive--and funniest--horror films of the 1980s. Combs, Abbot, and Gale reunite for the almost-as-entertaining sequel Bride of Re-Animator. --Sean Axmaker Disc 1: Original mono soundtrack THX Optimizer to assure proper TV/monitor calibration 16x9 anamorphic motion menus 24 chapters with motion images Dual layer disc for high quality picture and sound Disc 2: New video interviews with director Stuart Gordon and producer Brian Yuzna New video interview with writer Dennis Paoli New video interview with composer Richard Band New video interview with Fangoria editor Tony Timpone 16 extended scenes (16X9 Anamorphic) Deleted scene (16X9 Anamorphic) Theatrical trailer (16X9 Anamorphic) 5 TV spots Music discussion with composer Richard Band Multi-angle storyboards Behind the scenes photo gallery Biographies and filmographies of cast and filmmakers

Producer Brian Yuzna & stuart Gordon had planned to release the workprint version to the public
which basically has all the Deleted scenes inserted in the Unrated footage making the runtime 104mins
known now as the Integral version
but then Brian & Gordon made a quick minute decision just to release the Unrated version without the Deleted scenes
which is the version that fans know today
U.K. Distributor second sight gained the rights this new Integral cut & released it on blu-ray for the first time ever
which is the longer 104mins version, Deleted scenes inserted back in the film
plus second sight gave the usual Unrated cut a new 4k HD transfer in 1:78:1 widescreen ratio
and i tell you the picture quality does look amazing very nice sharp & clear colour restoration
the U.S. image blu-ray version has the transfer look like a DVD transfer from the old Anchor bay release
so second sight really did make an effort with the picture quality for sure
the Audio options are the same 5.1 Master audio mix & a 2.0 stereo mix aswell
the Integral version has been given normal 1080p HD transfer (not 4k) in 1:78:1 ratio with only a 5.Read more ›
Plenty, if this wildly funny and extremely gory film is anything to go by. RE-ANIMATOR is a classic example of comedy and horror combining to shred the usual expectations by thrusting us headlong into altogether crazier dimensions - and that still applies now, 22 years after it first eviscerated onto our cinema screens. It sure still feels fresh to me, with evidence in almost every scene of the excitement and adrenaline that must have permeated the whole production at the time. (Not difficult either to imagine the producer and director donning their protective splash-suits and saying to each other on a daily basis: "go for it!").
I love the 'teaser' (pre-titles sequence), the titles themselves - including a wonderful musical nod to Hitchcock's PSYCHO - and the remaining 80-odd minutes. Yes, if you're in the right mood, there's not a single wrong-footed moment to spoil this show.
And what a show. Watch in slack-jawed amazement Herbert West's obsessive experiments to bring back to life that which has expired, including a distinctly pissed off cat. Stare in wide-eyed disbelief as a severed head plumbs depths hitherto unexplored by your average movie severed head. Pray in silent torment that the final re-animation of a central character justifies the whole catalogue of horror that has preceded this moment.
So why doesn't all this excess leave a nasty taste in the mouth? Because there's a directorial tongue firmly planted in everyone's cheek, that's why. Thank you STUART GORDON and BRIAN YUZNA.Read more ›
The 'Unrated Version has a brand new 4K restoration, and hopefully we will see a 4K UHD Release soon. And the 'Integral version is exclusive to Blu-ray.
Now for me the Blu-ray is beautiful on both versions they get a 5/5 from me
Video: 1.78:1, 1080p / 23.98: Audio DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 / LPCM Stereo.
The 'Unrated version does have English Subtitles but sadly the Intergral doesn't.
You do get a nice revisable sleeve. Blu-ray is region B.
Their are loads of Bonus Features.
Horror legend Jeffrey Combs is a joy to watch as Herbert West, he plays the role with such sinister relish that it's impossible not to like him. A lot of the films comedy comes from how straight Combs plays the role, and along with From Beyond, Castle Freak and The Frighteners, this is his best work. The other real standout performance comes from the late David Gale as Dr. Carl Hill, Herbert West's nemesis. He died aged just 54 and I haven't seen anything else he made apart from the sequel, a shame he appeared in so little as he's wonderful in Re-Animator. Barbara Crampton is very pretty and played her role as Megan well, she later teamed up again with Combs in Castle Freak.Read more ›

80s cheese at its best. Over the top acting, over the top directing, a quirky story. If you're expecting award winning film, skip this. Read morePublished 1 month ago by AuthorMattShaw
