Ep. 03-18: Re-Animator (1985)

Herbert West has a Frankenstein fixation in that he is obsessed with overcoming the obstacle of death. He has developed a serum and convinces his skeptic roommate, Dan Cain, into joining his audacious project by reanimating his dead cat. Inevitably, as the two young scientists burrow deeper into uncharted territories, their campus soon starts brimming with West’s reanimated corpses. Arch-nemesis, Dr. Hill, yearns to take credit for this astounding discovery.

Episode 18 The Reanimator

Re-Animator (1985) is Stuart Gordon’s love-letter to the writings of controversial horror author H. P.
