About this movie

DATE. MATE. RE-ANIMATE. The success of Stuart Gordon's hit horror-comedy Re-Animator meant that a sequel was all but inevitable. The resulting follow-up, Bride of Re-Animator – this time helmed by director Brian Yuzna (Society, Return of the Living Dead 3) – would prove that there was a good deal more life left in the story of Dr. Herbert West and his ghoulish exploits. It is 8 years since the Miskatonic massacre. Unperturbed by the disastrous outcome of his previous meddling with the dead, Dr. West (again played by Jeffrey Combs) 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? With special effects master Screaming Mad George (the man behind the infamous "shunting" sequence in Society) on hand to contribute a host of characteristically weird and wonderful creations – including zombified bats and a one-eyed finger spider – Bride of Re-Animator is a more than worthy successor to Gordon's original cult classic. 2016 Arrow Films

Bride Of Re-Animator finally gets a deservedly top notch visual and audio restoration here in a seamless unrated version. Just when you think Writer/Director Brian Yuzna won't go too far and top the original movie with some of the gory imagery - he does - with the help of physical sfx master 'Screaming Mad George'. The cast are wonderful, especially Kathleen Kinmont, who deserves extra praise for imbuing The Bride with such tragic humanity and the last image is worthy of Edgar Allan Poe himself.
