Re-Animator

1985

Stuart Gordon
Director

Herbert West has a serum for bringing the dead to life. Complications ensue.

Gloriously over-the-top horror comic which starts off with a techno version of the music from Psycho just to get you in the mood.

Oodles of gratuitous nudity and splatter effects and a scene that gives a whole new twist to 'giving head'.

Despite a plethora of releases I have yet to see a copy that was as sick and twisted as the one that graced the London Film Festival in 1985.
