In 1985 slasher films were the bread and butter of horror. That all changed with Re-Animator--a crazy, gory, wild zombie film that delivered splatter and humor in equal measure. Loosely based on the H.P. Lovecraft story "Herbert West: Re-Animator", the film starred the then-unknown Jeffrey Combs as the titular scientist. The unrated film became a midnight movie staple, and an unlikely critical hit!
