RMG 061: Re-Animator (1985)

March 29, 2017

In this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew are joined by guest Nick Speer from the Asheville Pinball Museum (check out more about the museum HERE and Nick HERE) and we’re geeking out over Re-Animator (1985) and

  • Jeffrey Combs
  • 80’s effects
  • questionable endings
  • and much, much more!


Herbert West is a brilliant/mad scientist who has “conquered death”! He’s invented a serum that can re-animate dead tissue and is now experimenting on animals and even humans, to various results. It’s very messy and it most often ends up with blood, and body parts all over the place.

Enrolling as a student, at the Miskatonic University, he rents a room from fellow student, Dan Cain, and turns his basement into a laboratory… and before long, Dan, along with his girlfriend, Meg… her dad… a brain surgeon… and a bunch of dead people, are all involved in Herbert West’s bizarre experiments!
