Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) is a brilliant medical student who has perfected a green-glowing serum for regenerating the dead — or even parts of dead things. But a corrupt superior, Dr. Carl Hill (David Gale), assumes control of West's experiments and winds up, by ghastly necessity, having the stuff used on his own severed head and body. West and in-over-his-head co-worker Dan Cain (Bruce Abbott) struggle to control the now out-of-control effects of the serum, but the bone-saws and zombies complicate their plans.

This is Jeffrey Combs first film. He later starred in "From Beyond", and had a cameo in "The Frighteners" with Michael J. Fox. Bride of Re-Animator was, unfortunately, one of David Gale's last film appearance. He died from complications during open-heart surgery and is often given acknowledgment in the film's bonus commentaries.

One of the best cult movies in it's genre, Re-Animator was re-released in 2002 in a Millenium Edition, 2 disc pack, loaded with Feature Commentaries, Video Interviews, Extended and Deleted Scenes, Trailers, Biographies, and Multi-Anlge story Boards. A must for all who love campy, witty horror flicks!!
