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…
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.
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…
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.
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.
It doesn't quite live up to the first Re-Animator, but there is a lot to appreciate. The effects are entertaining, especially Herbert West's weird experiments. His character's amusement over his findings was funny. There was a much lighter feeling about the story and it leads up to a wacky finale.
Jeffrey Combs is such a cult icon. The first time I saw Stephen Colbert on the Daily Show I thought it was him. This one doesn't have enough gore compared to the original or From Beyond and the efx are a little to cartoony but not bad. I think this one is funnier overall.
Lacks the energy and pacing of the first movie and plays up Dan Cain' s emotional side too much, making him a sappier, duller character. It has moments and the ending is great fun but overall the more hell-for-leather Beyond Re-Animator is a more satisfying experience.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I'll watch anything with Herbert West in it. Even though it's not as good as the original, Hill's flying disembodied head at the end really sold it for me.
Isn't quite as great as the original but god damn does it come close. With more special effects and strange creatures than you could ever want this movie is about as much as you could hope for in a horror sequel.
Makes a great double feature with Frankenhooker.
Super gritty and gross and messy but hey if it's got Jeffrey Combs doing his thing I am bound to be entertained. Plus that bonzo ending, hot damn.
All thoughts as to whether this sequel could 'live' up to it's predecessor were quickly forgotten. 'Bride of Re-Animator' eases itself into the horror, rather than an initial burst in the original, this helps for both the tension, gore and humour to mount.
With far more undertones of necrophilia in this film, it was always going to be funny, especially with the surviving members of the original cast returning (and some that didn't). The focus is on forwarding the dream, and making that dream bigger; to surpass Dr. Frankenstein.
With some great gore moments, some hilarious one liners and fight scenes with dismembered limbs, you couldn't help but feel all of the nods to zombie films gone by. A cracking second outing, just not quite as surprising as the original.
One of the oddest horror movies I've ever seen- this movie hardly holds a candle to the original and feels far more goofy than scary. It's hard to take seriously but perhaps that works to it's benefit, as if it's not going to be that great of a film it can still be enjoyable in a "laughably bad" sort of way.
