Re-Animator Movie Review
Am I forgetting anything?
Make no mistake about it, this movie has tongue planted firmly in cheek, but to me, not much of the comedy is actually funny--you kind of need that for a comedy horror to work. Not that the actors do a bad job--on the contrary, they, for the most part, do an exceptional job with what they were given. Considering the relatively low budget the film had, the special effects and splatter scenes are pretty decent as well. The story moves pretty slow and really seems to have no direction at all throughout most of the movie. If you can stick it out, though, the final fifteen minutes of the movie are really well done. Re-Animator is undeniably considered a horror comedy classic, but for me there is nothing really spectacular about the movie. Watch it so you can say you've seen it, and for the fantastic finish.
