This review is from: Beyond Re-animator (DVD)
Beyond Re-Animator, the second sequel to the 80s horror classic Re-Animator, blew away my expectations- brilliant in every sense, intelligent, fresh, funny, energetic, everything that made the first great. Jeffrey Combs is back as the witty mad scientist Herbert West (he puts in a great performance as usual)... the story picks up 13 years later where he's confined to the walls of a prison. He doesn't let that stop him from carrying out more experiments though and soon teams up with a young doctor (who by chance was a follower of West and his research).
Now with advanced capabilities and improved ideas for re-animating the dead, the duo set out to perfect the process. Only problem is they get caught up in a prison break which escalates into an all out battle with the undead. Not only one of the bloodiest movies I've seen in a long time but very entertaining. This doesn't really feel like a horror movie, more like a sci fi freak fest and unique in that it takes place in a prison. Check this one out.
