CAN HE DO IT?

RE-ANIMATOR (1985)










#62 and #1 of the Empire Pictures marathon is 1985's Re-Animator, one of their best. Adapted from the H.P. Lovecraft story, Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) figures out a way to re-animate the dead. Consequences ensue. Darkly funny, and perhaps best known for David Gale emoting as a severed head but still controlling his body. Goes way beyond the boundaries of good taste but great fun especially with an audience!
