Bride of Re-Animator, a review by Jimmy


MOVIE / DVD INFO:



Title: Bride of Re-Animator (1989)

Genre: Horror
Director: Brian Yuzna
Rating: R
Length: 1h39
Video: Full Frame
Audio: English
Subtitles: English

Stars:
Jeffrey Combs
Bruce Abbott
Claude Earl Jones
Fabiana Udenio
David Gale

Plot:
It's been eight months since the Miskatonic Massacre stained the halls with blood - and Dr. West and Dr. Cain's experiments have taken a bizarre turn. Now they have gone beyond re-animating the dead...into the realm of creating new life. The legs of a hooker, and the womb of a virgin are joined to the heart of Dr. Cain's dead girlriend - and the bride is unleashed upon her maite in a climax of sensual borror.

My Thoughts:
More often than not a movie sequel isn't as good as the original and what we have here is no exception. The story isn't really interesting and, more often than not, doesn't make sense. Some interesting idea appear but are never developped (by exemple the police investigation about the event of the first film), in fact it felt improvised (hard to believe that 3 persons were involved in the writing). The comedy side is not there anymore and the mood is dark and depressing, even Herbert West is played as a caricature (sure he is a mad scientist in the original but not an over the top unidimensional character). Didn't help also that Fabiana Udenio (remember the exchange student in Summer School?) play more or less the Barbara Crampton role in that film since she isn't a good actress.

Really poor sequel and an awfull sourced from tape DVD release thanks to Artisan Home Entertainment. At least Pionner released the film using the correct screen ratio with a commentary wich I'm sure was more entertaining than the film was.

My Thoughts:
I decided on this movie when I noticed in Profiler that I haven't watched it in 8 years! I should have never let so much time go by watching this one. I forgot just how fun this movie is. I is a great mixture of comedy and adventure. I loved every minute of watching this one again. This is one of those few cases where I couldn't imagine them doing any better on it then what they did. At no point in this one was I bored even in the least. All the actors were great. The kids were a lot of fun to watch. This is definitely one that I would highly recommend.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Data's head is found in a cave on Earth, where it was lying since the 19th century. During the investigation of this, Data gets pulled into the past.
This season cliffhanger may not have the big impact expected from such a cliffhanger, but I always enjoyed this episode.
