Run Time: 1 hr 26 min (86 min)

Almost twenty years since its release, Re-Animator continues to be a visually stunning film; the make up and special effects are still phenomenal today as it was back then. .  The gore was the standard you would get from say a zombie film and did not feel excessive.  Speaking for the unrated version, the plot felt jumpy at times, as if the fast forward button was hit. Richard Band did a great job composing the memorable theme song for this movie which was reminiscent of the one Harry Manfredini did for Friday the 13th (1980).    Overall, a fun movie experience for fans of films like Dead Alive and Evil Dead 2.
