Product Description

Bruce Abbott, Claude Earl Jones. Two mad doctors discard their practice of bringing the dead back to life and decide to create a new breed of humans. 1989/color/99 min/NR/fullscreen.

From the Back Cover

The mad Dr. Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs), the tormented Dr. Dan Cain (Bruce Abbott), and the beheaded Dr. Carl Hill (David Gale) return in this terrifying sequel to Re-Animator, the most deliriously outrageous horror movie of the decade. It's been eight months since the Miskatonic Massacre stained the halls with blood - and Dr. West and Dr. Cain's experiments have taken a bizarre turn. Now they have gone beyond re-animating the dead...into the realm of creating new life. The legs of a hooker and the womb of a virgin are joined to the heart of Dr. Cain's dead girlfriend - and the bride is unleashed upon her mate in a climax of sensual horror.

5.0 out of 5 stars "No, Hill didn't kill me...he didn't have the guts." February 21, 2001
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
OK, so Bride of Re-Animator isn't as good as the original, but as fans know, that was a pretty hard act to follow. I didn't really appreciate this movie as much until I rented this special edition DVD and was blown away! First of all, this movie has the second most hilarious commentary track (the one with Jeffrey Combs and Dan Abbott, as Dr. West and Dr. Cain) I have every heard (the funniest was Evil Dead 2, limited edition-I don't think anything can top that).
I should also point out here in all fairness that I'm a complete Re-animator geek, I saw it in the theater in 1985 and was hooked; I've probably watched it more than any other horror movie-at least 50 times in the last 15 years. I almost broke my legs in my haste getting to the video store when their copy of the sequel came in I was so excited. I was slightly disappointed, but I did have very high expectations. The last 20 minutes or so were pretty impressive, but the prologue I was so psyched to see (more on that later) was completely gone.
When I rented this DVD special edition, though, I decided to actually pick up a copy. Not only; was the commentary by the actors hilarious, but both of the actors, especially Combs, go into interesting details like how the scene was shot,; and even going into the character's motivations. Combs even remembers some of his lines (with the exact inflections he delivered them in), which didn't make me feel like such a geek. You can tell he had a blast making the movie and really enjoyed it. Lines that never struck me as especially amusing before such as Dr. West saying, "My God...they're using tools!" were hilarious when the actor made a few comments afterwards.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good DVD, kind of misleading November 23, 1999
The uncut version is in pretty poor condition. The picture, particularly in dark areas is very pixelly, and the sound is so bad you have to crank it to even hear. This should just be seen as a curiosity because it's only 1 minute longer. The only difference I noticed was in the uncut version, I think the Luetenant swings the dog an extra time and shoves his stump into Francesca's face for an extra few seconds. That's it, really. If there is anything else, it's certainly not noticed. Also it should be noted that this film was shot in Super 35, because it went straight to video. Apparently Brian intended the picture to be matted, and this is an option that is provided. But understand that you are BLOCKING OUT A GREAT DEAL OF PICTURE! It is just as if you took two strips of black construction paper and taped them to your TV screen. The featurette is not narrated and is in fact home movies strung together. It's only about 10 minutes long, but I have to admit seeing David Gale with bat wings on his head playing cards with a zombified Johnny Legend is simply hilarious. The box also makes it sound like it has tons of stuff. Everything except the featurette is in one file titled "Casefiles", which is just a series of stills you step through. For example, "conceptual drawings". There are 2-3 drawings in this mix, as well as 2-3 paragraphs of text regarding the production. All these bloopers, behind-the-scenes, etc. are all part of the featurette, which I think is misleading. The highlight of this disc is the commentary. I have the 10th Anniversary LD for Re-Animator, and it has one of the best commentary tracks I've heard, so I was excited to get this DVD for that reason alone. Here's a case where the jacket doesn't do the disc justice. Read more ›

Bride Of Re-animator was previously released on DVD by Pioneer/Artisan as a Special Edition which was far superior to this bare bones DVD reissue from Artisan. The special edition offered two versions of the film (Rated R and Unrated). It had a full-length commentary by the director, cast, the special effects guys, etc. It also offered a deleted scene and a blooper/outtake/behind-the-scenes reel which are both absent on this reissue. Another thing it had were many still galleries, promotional materials, production notes...and more.
I have indeed seen the movie transfer on this reissued DVD, and it looks like the same transfer on the previous DVD release. If you don't care for special features, or can't get the older DVD...then, and only then, is it a good buy for the movie itself!
Artisan must be really lazy these days. They'd had no special features on any of their recent DVD releases of older Horror and Sci-Fi flicks. Not even a theatrical trailer! It's almost as if they could care less because they know the product will sell anyways.
So, you may ask...why am I giving this a 5 star rating? For the movie itself...surely not for this featureless DVD! The only thing good about this reissue is that it has the original movie artwork on the cover, even though the old DVD "neon" artwork looked much cooler.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bride of Re-Animator May 17, 2010
Just as James Wales' BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN managed to surpass his own Gothic masterpiece, Brian Yuzna's BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR also manages to outdo Stuart Gordon's original in many ways. Picking up only a few years after the disaster in the Miskatonic University morgue, BRIDE finds Dr. Herbert West and Dan Cain returning to their questionable practice of re-animating the dead as they attempt to build the perfect being out of choice pieces of flesh that they have 'borrowed' from Arkham cemetery. Dr. Cain professes a selfless desire to help heal the wounded with the fruits of their research, but unlike Dr. West (who quite openly admits to his own selfish desires), Cain secretly hopes to revive the heart and brain of his dead girlfriend within the body of their new pet project. Jeffrey Combs and Bruce Abbott continue to create a perfect synergy on screen, though their performances are a bit more reserved than before. David Gale also returns as the bodiless head of Dr. Hill, who has plenty of new torments to unleash upon his enemies. In addition to a substantial amount of gore, Yuzna injects the film with the same deliciously dark humor that lined Paoli's earlier script. The creative geniuses at KNB EFX Group also introduce a massive array of imaginative designs that are as hilarious and ironic as they are disturbing. BRIDE is very much the twisted take on BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN that it intends to be, and in all of its absurdity it proves to be a winning sequel that recaptures much of the brilliance found in the original film.

I am a Re-Animator fan. I'm a Lovecraft fan. So, this sort of thing is right up my alley. It isn't for everyone. It's gorey, a bit crude at times, and certainly shocking. Read more

I actually like the 3rd movie better (Beyond Re-Animator), but this one's pretty good. I hope Stuart Gordon finally gets around to making a 4th one.
