Review - ReAnimator
Over the years, the works of H.P. Lovecraft have proven difficult to transfer to the big screen.  Something about the otherworldly menace of many of the stories has been just beyond cinematic grasp.

That's what makes Re-Animator so special.

Based on Lovecraft's Herbert West - Reanimator, 1985's B-Movie classic is a masterpiece of gore and nudity.  The smaller scope of the story allowed Stuart Gordon to focus on the more human aspects of Lovecraftian horror with surprisingly good results.

For those not familiar with the story, here's the synopsis:

When medical student Dean Cain advertises for a roommate, he soon finds one in the form of Dr. Herbert West. Initially a little eccentric, it some becomes clear that West entertains some seriously outlandish theories - specifically, the possibility of re-animating the dead. It's not long before Dean finds himself under West's influence, and embroiled in a serious of ghoulish experiments which threaten to go wildly out of control...

I'd truly forgotten what a grisly good time Re-Animator is.  The movie set the bar that so many other comedy-horror movies have been trying to reach for decades.
