Re-Animator (1985) In this H.P. Lovecraft tale, Herbert West is a Swiss scientist who has discovered a fluid which brings dead tissue back to life. After the suspicious death of his professor in Switzerland, West moves to Miskatonic University to continue his research. He involves fellow student Dan Cain and his fiancee Megan Halsey in his research by experimenting on their dead cat. Dan, fascinated by West's research, agrees to smuggle him into the hospital morgue with predictable results.

  • It will scare you to pieces.
Movie Quote(s):
  • Herbert West: Who's going to believe a talking head? Get a job in a sideshow.
  • [Visiting the morgue] Dan Cain: What if we get caught? Herbert West: What'll they do? Embalm us?
  • [Re-re-animating the dead cat in the basement] Herbert West: Don't expect it to tango; it has a broken back.
  • Herbert West: I must say, Dr. Hill, I'm VERY disappointed in you. You steal the secret of life and death, and here you are trysting with a bubble-headed coed. You're not even a second-rate scientist!
  • Swiss Woman Doctor: You killed him! Herbert West: No, I did not. I gave him life.
Movie Trivia:
  • Cameo: [James Cameron's father] The man sitting next to Meg with his jaw bandaged up is James Cameron's father.
  • The first man who is re-animated at the morgue (who goes on to kill the dean) is Arnold Schwarzenegger's body double.
  • Very loosely adapted from H.P. Lovecraft's "Herbert West - Re-Animator".
  • Stuart Gordon and Dennis Paoli originally intended to be faithful to H.P. Lovecraft's story, but the film ultimately has little in common with the story, which was intended to be a parody of "Frankenstein".
  • The special effects department went through 25 gallons of fake blood during the shoot.
