Lurid, humorous, gruesome… It’s a great turn on Lovecraft, mixing the main chunks of the story with EC Comics sensibilities & ooey gooey SFX
Imagine being horny for a guy named "Herbert."
Classic horror/dark comedy with a side of body horror and dash of Lovecraftian hijinks
If you already love 80s horror schlock, this is best in class, and you already know it. If not, brace for corny acting & goofy gore. Fun fun
I actually read the short story it was based on first. It's an incredible modernization of the H.P. Lovecraft classic. So good!
So many great one-liners, Jeffrey Combs is amazing, the lighting is great. I love this movie so much!
next time revive the cortex not just subcortical layers 🙄 beginners mistake. could have been gayer
Bloody love this one. Cult classic dark comedy!
Great mix of comedy and horror with great performances from the cast to sell the terror
Jeffery Combs does a fantastic job of riding unlikable jackass and entertaining mad scientist in this gross out monster mash.
A dedicated student at a medical college and his girlfriend become involved in bizarre experiments centering around the re-animation of dead tissue when an odd new student arrives on campus.
Unperturbed by the disastrous outcome of his previous meddling with the dead, Dr. West continues his research into the phenomenon of re-animation; only this time, he plans to create life – starting with the heart of his young protégé Dan's dearly deceased, Meg Halsey. Surely nothing could go wrong?
Once again tampering with mother nature to disastrous results, Dr. Herbert West continues his research while serving time in a maximum security prison for his previous exploits. West's limited prison-cell experiments are suddenly interrupted by the arrival of a new prison doctor and the brother of the girl who suffered from West's experiments 13 years earlier.
