Popcorn Frights is back to scare you to pieces with a special big screen presentation of the cult classic RE-ANIMATOR, a flick that bursts out of the gate swinging for the fences and doesn’t let up until after a climax that will leave your jaw on the floor and your brain in a gutter that could only exist in the darkest dimensions of consciousness.

Feeling like an amalgam of Frankenstein, The Beyond, and Revenge of the Nerds, RE-ANIMATOR is where science meets chaos to produce a hyperactive overdose of gruesome H.P. Lovecraft insanity. Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) is a new student at Miskatonic University. He also moonlights as a mad scientist, intent on perfecting a serum that “re-animates” corpses. Soon, everyone wants a piece of the action, including an evil professor and his army of slime-covered deadites. With berserker direction from Stuart Gordon, career-defining roles from horror icons Barbara Crampton and Jeffrey Combs, and a scene of two adults chasing an undead cat in a basement, RE-ANIMATOR isn’t just a masterpiece of the horror genre — it’s a masterpiece of life.
