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.
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.
I always loved this film with great visual effects and the zombie effect on the Frankenstein genre. As a horror film, it is still to this day a fine orginal. I don't think anyone could beat the plot and originality they put into this film. I would be pissed if they tried to remake this film
