A patchwork Re-Animated rejects it's organs, and falls into a bloody pile of gore!


REC Review

When it comes to Bride of Re-Animator, you have to look at the film in a certain way. The original movie is based off of a short story written by H.P. Lovecraft, back around 1922. And if you thought the original film was wacky, you'll find the sequel almost cartoon-like. Not to say it is a bad movie, in fact, it's far from it. There are MANY worse undead films around, and what saves this one from being among their ranks, is that it doesn't take itself too seriously. And that's how you have to look at it, not too seriously... after all, it should be classified as a comedy-horror.

This movie is great if you like lots of gore, and a movie to laugh at... not with. There's just too much stupidity in this movie to take it to heart. The ambiance is very comic book like, and there are quite a few 'out there' scenes.

This flick is brought up a few pegs with the return of the main characters from the original, as Jeffrey Combs and Bruce Abbott reprise their roles as Herbert West and Daniel Cain. Once again, Jeffrey Combs steals the show. His portrayal of the mad scientist obsessed with his work and nothing else, is what this movie should be watched for. The acting is decent, but the mood set throughout the film is what is really special.

Overall, I would have to say this movie is deserving of an average score. Not bad at all, but nothing to get overly excited about. It's a good movie to watch among friends, and is one that you can all laugh at and be shocked by.
