    Beyond Re-Animator
    Once again tampering with mother nature to disastrous results, Dr. Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) continues his research in director Brian Yuzna's second sequel to the 1985 splatter classic Re-Animator. Currently serving time in a maximum security prison for his previous exploits, West's limited prison-cell experiments are suddenly interrupted by the arrival of Howard Phillips (Jason Barry), the new prison doctor and the brother of the girl who suffered from West's experiments 13 years earlier. Knowledgeable of West's previous experiments and eager to assist the mad doctor in continuing his studies, the naive Phillips discovers that West's continued studies have revealed a more effective means of bringing back the dead -- the removal of an individual's Neuroplasm, or soul, and the injection of it into a newly reanimated corpse. An electrical phenomenon discharged at the moment of death, with the discovery of the Neuroplasm West may have finally discovered the missing link to effectively bringing life to death. Or not. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Great follow-up to the first two!


      My wife and I loved this movie! It picks up where the second one left off, and takes place after he's been in prison for 13 years. It wasn't as good as the first one, of course, but is still worthy of five stars. I gave the acting four stars only because of Jeffrey Combs (who does a terrific job as usual.) Other than him, I'd probably give the other actors two stars, they should've gotten better actors (and actresses.) But, the special effects are much better than the first two and makes up for the acting. It's directed by Brian Yuzna, who directed the second one and produced the first one. This was a great third installment to the series, (and good sequels are hard to come by.) I love all these movies, I don't want them to end! So, if you're a fan, as my wife and I are, you'll love this one. Buy it!

      I was suprised that there was a third installment to this wonderful, quirky, gross fest movie and I had to have it. The story was original, tied the other two movies together, and he went beyond just resurrecting dead corpse. He gave them memories of their formal life, feelings and at the end love. The left it wide open at the end for another possible sequel, which I read on Wikipedia that it would be titled, House of the Re-Animator and had to do with bringing either the vice-president or the president back to life. You never know, it could happen, I'll ask Jeff Combs at the Convention next month when I see him.

      Dr. West who now finds himself in jail will shortly be up to his old antics in this second part of the Re-animator. You will really enjoy the craziness that starts if you are a follower of this series.
