"Herbert West has a
very good head on his shoulders. . . and another one in
a dish on his desk."
Re-Animator was released in
1985, and was about a wacky medical student who had
developed a special goo that could bring dead things
back to life. When others try to take over his
lab, Herbert simply chops them up and incorporates them
into his experiments. No one is safe! There
were to follow-ups,
The Bride of Re-Animator in 1990, and
Beyond Re-Animator in 2003.
