RE-ANIMATOR

USA, 1985 (MIFF 1986)

Director: Stuart Gordon

Based on a story by H.P. Lovecraft, RE-ANIMATOR concerns a crazy scientist in a Massachusetts University who invents a serum that can bring dead bodies back to life. The bodies, however, turn nasty and seek out their own blood. A film destined to spawn a whole new cycle of "head" jokes.
