Most cinematographic adaptations of H.P. Lovecraft’s stories are completely different in tone from one another, though they mostly feature complex antagonists and the scientists investigating them, as an unspoken rule. This couldn't apply more to Re-Animator, even considering the dark, contemporary slapstick humor. Few aspects about this film are reproachable.
It wants to gross you out then make you laugh at yourself by the time you realize how ludicrous the script is, despite its pseudo-serious tone. It manages this irony using good but implausible prosthetic effects, more gore than you could ask for, constant banter and keen deliveries from nearly impossible characters that are brilliantly played and directed.
Sometimes titillating, often repulsing but always amusing, Re-Animator is an escalation of combined unfortunate events. The revenant talk. Some are smart, therefore not literal zombies, and most are their own creature. Their design is seemingly the fruit of a genius mind. The film avoids the usual clichés, too , becoming itself an inspiration for horror pictures to come.
