The Re-Animatoris one of those films that, if you saw it at just the right age, will stick with you for years. The movie is loosely based on the short story “Herbert West: Re-Animator” by H.P. Lovecraft. The film follows medical student Dan Cain and his bizarre roommate Herbert West, who claims to have found the secret to bringing the dead back to life. The Re-Animator helped to turn both Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton into horror film icons. It’s a campy and bloody film with some extremely dark humor, and truly spectacular gore effects. If you’re into 80’s horror films, and have never seen the movie, I can’t recommend it enough.
NECAbrings fans a new retro Mego style figure based onHerbert Westfrom the film. The figure is available in stores now. It includes multiple accessories from the film, including a severed Dr. Hill head and the reagent.
