Re-Animator (1985)

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.

Gory horror comedy, one of the first of this kind; quite entertaining, if you can take it.

Halliwell (no star): "Gross and grisly horror comic which amused some critics."

Maltin***: "Knockout thriller and black comedy...Debut film director Gordon goes entertainignly over the line, especially in an off-color scene involving heroine Crampton and a lustful severed head. Major defect: Richard Band's music score, which is too reminiscent of Bernard Herrmann's classic PSYCHO sound track."
