Flashback! Bad Movies That Haunt Me: Re-Animator

"One more game of pool, then let's put in a DVD. Whattya say?" My friend Danny is a movie freak, and back then had several hundred titles in his game room to choose from. Although he seemed partial to horror flicks.

Real partial.

He's a doctor, and one would think he'd see so much blood and guts during a typical workday that he wouldn't be up to having a healthy obsession with slasher flicks.

One would be wrong.


"Ever see Re-Animator?" he asked. I told him I hadn't. He put it in.

Danny said it was funny, and that the intended humor was an important element in the flick. I didn't peek though my fingers long enough to see the joke.

I'm still haunted by it.

We just watched "Edmond", also directed by Stuart Gordon (stars William H. Macy). It's a great, great film (based on a David Mamet play). Gordon can direct more than gore.

Yep, I've seen it (and commented on it here.) I was a little disappoint.

Re-Animator is one of those timeless classics like Evil Dead 2, Hatchet for a Honeymoon, and House of a 1000 Corpses. I could watch it everyday.

I told my mom I was seeing some PG piece of shit when she dropped me off...and then ran into this!

I pulled the same switcheroo when I saw "The Hitcher", "Toxic Avenger", and "ROTLD". Boy, was I clever...

Thanks for the reminder Filmy :D
