"[I]t has a fairly urgent tempo..."
The third RE-ANIMATOR film finds Dr. Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) getting out of jail after fourteen years for inadvertently killing a young girl as a result of one of his experiments. During his time on the inside, West continued to perfect his methods on rats. When a young doctor who is aware of West's discoveries, becomes the new prison M.D., he asks West to help him on a project he is working on. Before long, dead bodies are being reanimated left and right, and the prison walls are running red with blood! Director Brian Yuzna brings back copious amounts of the pitch black comedy and bright red splatter that fans of the series have come to expect.
