Based on the H.P. Lovecraft serial Herbert West-Reanimator and of course influenced by Shelley's Frankenstein, this sequel to Stuart Gordon’s 1985 classic Re-Animator starts eight months after the events of the first film. Doctors Herbert West and Dan Cain are working as medics in the middle of a bloody Peruvian civil war. With plenty of bodies to work on, they experiment with West’s re-animation reagent. After their medical tent is stormed by the enemy, they return home to work at Miskatonic University Hospital in Arkham. Still pilfering body parts from the hospital’s morgue and near-by cemetery, West discovers the heart of Cain’s fiancée Megan Halsey and convinces his partner-in-crime to re-animate the perfect woman from dead tissue.
This is the fifth film in our FRANKENSTEIN FOREVER season – a celebration of the cinematic legacy of Mary Shelley’s novel. Although there have been numerous straight adaptations of her gothic masterpiece, this season brings you some of the weirdest, wackiest and most bizarre films inspired by Shelley’s brilliant imagination. 2018 marks 200 years since the publication of Frankenstein.
