Release: October 18, 1985

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!!

Herbert West: "Meatball?"
Dan Cain: "Just put your shoes on."
Dan Cain: "So, West, what kind of medicine are you involved in?"
Herbert West: "Death."
Herbert West: "Don't expect it to tango. It has a broken back."
Dan Cain: "What if we get caught?"
Herbert West: "What'll they do? Embalm us?"
Dr. Carl Hill: "And there you have it, ladies and gentlemen, the human brain."
Megan Halsey: "Where's Rufus (the cat)? I haven't seen him since we got here."
Dan Cain: "He was DEAD! (West) Was..."
Dan Cain: "Why is he making that noise? (West) Birth is always painful."
Dan Cain: "You haven't done this on...people...?"
Dan Cain: "Well, you know Herbert. He's just a little cracked."
Dan Cain: "I'm going to have to teach you a lesson, little girl."
Mace: "You haven't got my lunch under there, do you? (Dan) Not unless you like meatball."
Mace: "One good thing about working down here. Nobody wants in, and ain't nobody getting out."
Herbert West: "I've broken the 6 to 12 minute barrier! I've conquered brain death!"
Herbert West: "It's really quite simple. All life is a chemical and physical process, correct? It stands to reason, then, that if one could find extremely fresh specimens and re-charge that chemical process, BANG, we'd have re-animation."
Herbert West: "What did you want me to do? Leave you a message? Cat dead- details later?"
Herbert West: "Frankly, Dr. Hill, your work on brain death is...outdated."
Herbert West: "No, I did not (kill him), I GAVE HIM LIFE!"
Dr. Carl Hill: "Mr. West, I suggest you get yourself a pen."
Dr. Carl Hill: "I want your discovery, whatever it is that gives the appearance of life. (West) It isn't the appearance of life, it IS life."
