  1. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Re-Animator

    A hilarious, tongue-in cheek, gory and grotesque horror comedy that deliver memorable effects and dead-pan humor. It is inventive with sick ideas and fabulous one-liners and is a great extension of a H.P. Lovecraft short story. Jeffrey Combs is fantastic as mad scientist while the image of seeing David Gale's decapitated severed head giving oral sex to Barbara Crampton on a operation table is an unforgettable memory.

  2. xer vokun's rating of the film Re-Animator

    some pretty good lol moments

  3. João R's rating of the film Re-Animator

    A Frankenstein pastiche with a Lovecraftian tone should've been much more beguiling.

  5. msmichel's rating of the film Re-Animator

    Classic 80's alternative horror film from director Stuart Gordon adapting (loosely) a story by H.P. Lovecraft. Jeffery Combs created a most excellent character in Herbert West and the other leads also elevate the material past its pulpy origins. Though made on a limited budget the effects work well in context. 'Who's going to believe a talking head? Get a job in a sideshow'.

  6. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Re-Animator

    Darkly humorous and madhouse bonkers, Re-Animator is among the very best comedic-horror films of all time. Actually, in terms of being purely depth-less entertainment, it's rarely bettered. Combs creates one of the most memorable characters in horror, and Crampton is an endearing female during some of the most stand-out scenes of absurdity. Simply B-film genius, Re-Animator remains essential viewing for both genres.

  7. Tibulle85's rating of the film Re-Animator

    Ce premier film de Stuart Gordon est à la limite du nanar mais 2 scènes sortent du lot: l'attaque du chat, aux lumières qui doivent tout à Tourneur, et bien sûr la fameuse scène du "viol lingual" de la jeune potiche par la tête coupée du professeur (ça vend du rêve pour les amateurs de films de genre!!!). Ces moments de bravoure, plus une ambiance globalement potache, rendent l'ensemble particulièrement sympathique.

  8. Bob's rating of the film Re-Animator

    Recycled "Psycho" theme helps to create paranoid mood appropriate for subject of mad scientists and living corpses. It starts as a horror that relies on small details that can make a dead cat enough scary, but towards the end it leans on splatter fest and comedy. Because of that, it's a fun watch that is not supposed to be taken seriously as its source material aspirated to do; nothing more and nothing less.

  9. Nolan Barth's rating of the film Re-Animator

    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!

  10. Paul Mallinson's rating of the film Re-Animator

    Just splatter hilarity and dark comedy perfection. Not to mention Barbara Crampton!

  11. luís debonoir's rating of the film Re-Animator

  12. Matthew Catanzano's rating of the film Re-Animator

    Inventive and visual, some of the sequels were better at capturing the potential that is layed out here.

  13. FISCHER's rating of the film Re-Animator

    Décapitation, trépanation, mutilation, éventration en série, l'hémoglobine est reine, et l'humour n'est pas oublié. Du Grand Guignol à outrance, moins le charme des films de Gordon Hessler qui avaient encore plus d'allant et d'efficacité...

  14. Velvet Kitsune's rating of the film Re-Animator

  15. Gonçalo Rosas's rating of the film Re-Animator

    (Generous) 7 - The blatantly plagiarized score is a black mark on what otherwise is a damn good piece of Lovecraftsploitation (I don't care if the term doesn't exist, I like it).

  16. Pedderrs's rating of the film Re-Animator

    Exploitative B-level horror was dime a dozen throughout the 80s, but Re-Animator manages to elevate itself above the competition with a hilarious script, committed performances and ambitious practical effects that help bring some truly off-beat scenes to life. Stuart Gordan has created a supremely well crafted film here, displaying the kind of technical prowess that should only be attainable for far bigger budgets.

  17. Bernardo_'s rating of the film Re-Animator

    Amusing little flick based on a Lovecraft short story

  18. wiwitaek's rating of the film Re-Animator

    Made me sleepy. Boring, full of cliches, doesn't make sense. Overrated

  19. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Re-Animator

    I think I like this even more than The Thing

  20. the_mentaculus's rating of the film Re-Animator

    The script is an erudite, batty ouroboros of foreshadowing, smut, and innuendo -- it's brilliant. Nigh a thing in this film should be changed. You'll be crying from laughter and puking at the same time, which we know is the goal of all High Art. The unique combination of fluids leaves quite a refreshing taste in your mouth.

  21. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Re-Animator

  22. HSBilly's rating of the film Re-Animator

  23. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Re-Animator

    2-3. A fun, gory little horror bauble. Probably wouldn't watch it more than once, but fun while it lasted.
