Beyond Re-Animator

"Weak"

Beyond Re-Animator Review


The third Re-Animator film (18 years after the original!) finds Herbert West in prison but still finding time to work on his Frankensteinian experiments in a corner of his cell. He's getting a little better at it, too, perfecting his green serum. Alas, when an inmate dies of a heart attack, re-animation turns him into a crazed zombie. A comely reporter on the scene fares a bit better, but when riots break out in the prison (zombies and non-zombies alike), all hell breaks loose. Minimal creature effects make this by far the least interesting of the series, including the lackluster Bride of Re-Animator. But come 2015, I'll be curious to see if Herbert has finally mastered his formula. I figure be then he'll be retired and a billionaire, having conquered death. Now that's a movie!
