Bride of Re-Animator
Date. Mate. Re-animate.
Herbert West once again revives the dead. This time, he brings Dan's ex-girlfriend's heart back inside a 'perfect' body. Dr. Hill returns as the evil nemesis who lost his head.
I loved Re-Animator. I was shocked at how much fun I had when watching it. This one tries to live up to the first one, and it never quite does. It starts off really slow and they kind of seem to be taking themselves too seriously for awhile. But, when the wacky moments do happen they are just as crazy and fun as the original and Herbert West is just such a fantastic character played perfectly by Jeffrey Combs.
I created what no man's mind nor woman's womb could ever hope to achieve.
-Dr. Herbert West
While the pacing might be off a tad and as a whole doesn't really achieve the deranged genius of the original, that batshit crazy final act makes up for any flaws the film might have leading up to it. Bruce Abbott returns from the original, but it's Jeffrey Combs as the returning Dr. Herbert West that is the true star of the film.
I don't want to dwell on the negatives of the film, because it's still a hell of a fun watch, but it's impossible not to notice the severe contrast in quality of almost all the special effects. Some of the…
While I have seen the first and third movie in the franchise countless times, somehow I never ended up watching the middle piece. That is until now. While I can see many of the drawbacks this movie brings, I still had way to much fun with it.
After all the mayhem Cain and West had caused in the first movie they somehow managed to earn their medical degree and get a job at the very same hospital they studied in. At night they try to expand their expertise and build a woman out of spare bodyparts. Needless to say there are many testruns to be passed.
Jeffrey Combs is again the lynchpin of the movie with a fantastic portrayal as…
This is pretty much a retread of the same material as the original, the difference here being a lack of focus on a central character in peril that we really care about. From the get-go we pretty much know where this is going to end up. Herbert and Dan will push their experiments to the limit until everything inevitably blows up in their faces and all hell breaks loose. Fortunately, it's still a lot of fun to watch that happen. It never gets old seeing Jeffery Combs do his thing as Dr. West, and the splat-stick has been cranked up to 11. Some slow parts aside, the climax is really a thing to behold, and if this doesn't live up to the standard of the original I at least came away with a smile on my face.
Yuzna no es Gordon y aunque la historia sea todo lo mongoloide que esperamos, las caídas de ritmo son demasiado graves como para no resentirse y hacer de hora y media un ladrillaco.
Momentazos tiene, faltaría más, pero es uno de esos casos en los que no compensa esperar a la siguiente parida del doctor.
Bride of Re-Animator is not as good as the original. It starts off slow and builds to its second half craziness, but it’s still super gory and all around fun. Jeffrey Combs is once again outstanding in the role of Dr. Herbert West. Some actors are born to play a certain role and the obsessed Dr. West is undoubtedly the role of his life.
I genuinely think I'm a little bit in love with 80's Jeffrey Combs, particularly in the first Re-Animator. He's still great in this sequel, of course, but the overall quality of the film is not quite up to the same standard. The plot is fine, it's just teetering on the edge of crazy but at the same time funny and interesting..... and then they all took a lot of drugs (A LOT OF DRUGS) and made the final act. It's... I don't know what it is. A shame, perhaps?
While Bride of Re-Animator is certainly not as good as the original, its still an entertaining & comedic film.
No subs on the DVD means I couldn't understand any of the dialogue, so I'll refrain from an official rating, but this seems like a fun sequel.
On par with the original Evil Dead for sheer insanity. Funny and revolting in nearly equal measures, assuming your sense of humor is fairly fucked.
Combs' energy is infectious. Otherwise meh.
first time viewing 8/10
Perfect? Not at all, but damn fun. Bride of Re-Animator holds up to repeat viewings by virtue of its "Yuzna-ness." Like most Yuzna films, it's reasonably entertaining for the first two acts and then the third act is just an absolute mind-job of insanity.
Horrorctober2015: Film 5
Teil Eins hätte eigentlich perfekt zu Teil Zwei übergeleitet, verstehe daher nicht warum daraus so ein Quatsch wurde. Personen tauchen auf die tot sein müssten, es gibt nen unnötigen Zeitsprung und der dicke ZombieCop... Das ist fast nur noch Comedy.
A horror movie sequel that's worse in pretty much every way from its fantastic predecessor, but some of the effects work is quite wonderful.
In early June, 2013, my best friend killed herself.
She took a cab to the middle of nowhere and vanished,…
Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
