I like how gore can take you away from reality to make you shiver on made up truth for the screen. However, Re-Animator didn't make it for me. It has a lot of potencial, but I think it is too out there. More subtle scenes and suspense would make an even scarier cinema.
Some seriously ridiculous and highly entertaining shit. During the disembodied head cunnilingus scene, all I could think of was Kevin Spacey and Wes Bentley in American Beauty smoking a joint and giggling over it. Oh, and how fucked up it was. While Re-Animator isn't a particularly good movie, its definitely a fun one.
one day i prayed to jesus that i would get to see a severed head attempt cunnilingus on a woman who posed for playboy and the next day i saw "re-animator" before jesus turned it into a fish which i then ate.
I don't think I've ever seen a more unusual film... With "Re-Animator" Stuart Gordon manages to create a strange and bizarre reimagining of the classic Frankenstein story. This is a fun, weird little horror film that I could watch over and over again!
