Versus Movie #138. What better way to start the New Year than with some "Re-Animator". This is a movie that would go down as one of the best underground movies. Underground only because it wasn't in the theater I mean. The story of a scientist trying to revive the dead is a classic one told and retold many times in history in various forms. It's said that Re-Animator was based on an H.P. Lovecraft story. That would explain why it's so downright bizarre and gruesome. I don't know why this movie didn't get bigger than it was but we all love it. It could have been theater worthy; it just didn't seem to catch that much attention. But now we all know about it and herald it as one of the greats. Ironic. If you ever get tired of regular zombies then this one is the answer. The sequels are just as weird if not more so. I think it's a classic idea: a glowing liquid in a syringe being able to revive dead cells and bring life to a dead body. Even if it's a decapitated head! Those are ideas way ahead of their time and Lovecraft was a pioneer in what truly scares us. Nobody has had the guts to make a Lovecraft movie but Stuart Gordon did a great job. He made it horror, real horror. Not some PG-13 horror/fantasy mainstream stuff. Jeffrey Combs brought the character of Herbert West to life with such passion that his performance alone made the movie. These were no mere zombies. It brought up philosophical debates on the morality of re-animation. What if you could do it? Does that mean we should? Would you dare wake the dead? It's similar to Frankenstein perhaps but nothing like it at all!
