Horror 101 – Episode 49: Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator

Episode 49: Re-Animator (1985) – December 23rd, 2015

Death is just the beginning…

Just in time for Christmas! Welcome back to the Horror 101 podcast! We always say that 1985 was the most entertaining year for horror. And Re-Animator is certainly NO exception. When you have Stuart Gordon directing a Brian Yuzna film starring Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton, you cannot do wrong. Based off a Lovecraft story of science run amok, Re-Animator is a pioneering zany gore flick which has something for everyone. The horror effects are stunning, the acting is excellent. The attention to detail by the crew that made this film was second to none. This was the movie that put Jeffrey Combs on the map. If you’ve never seen him as Herbert West then you’re missing out. We dare you to find another flick made for under a million dollars thats as good as Re-Animator. After a somber year of memorial Horror 101 shows we decided to push the camp and laughs this time around and we couldn’t find a better film to focus on to achieve that than Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator. Its a 37 minute Horror 101 treatment of another classic you shouldn’t miss! Join us!

    To Everyone at Horror 101

    Hope you all had a good Christmas and new year. Here in the UK it rained…a lot, when I say a lot really Noah would be like ‘holy fuck it rained a lot here’ We lost parts of York, Leeds and the Dales…honestly Kevin Costner is looking to make Waterworld 2 here its Atlantis.

    Anyway just thought I would drop you a line to say thanks for this podcast – I had the pleasure of meeting Brian Yuzna a few weeks ago (he is setting up the Brian Yuzna Horror Academy here at my University along with Professor Xavier Mendick) and he is a really nice guy, very mellow, very at ease and very easy to talk to – which was great for students as while he is a producer of some renown he was really amiable to the students who worked with him on making a short film.

    Again just to say keep up the good work with the site! –
