Re-Animator

Directed by
Stuart Gordon


Stuart Gordon’s sharp, stomach-turning debut is one of the few successful HP Lovecraft adaptations, and a high point of independent 80s horror.

“Re-Animator’s gore is exceeded only by its wit.” – Washington Post

A medical student returns from Austria after working in regenerative experiments with a well known scientist who died under mysterious circumstances. He enrolls at Miskatonic University where he begs to differ with his professor on issues of the time of death, and eventually enlists his roommate to help him continue experiments on re-animating the dead. Based on a story by H.P. Lovecraft.

Re-Animator screens as part of a double feature with Bride of Re-Animator October 26 & 27.
