Welcome to Reanimator. For Real.

Mark Roth: the Reanimator (MetaFilter).

Re-Animator: The Movie (1985).

The original story by H.P. Lovecraft. He did indeed have a sense of humor, however dark, did Lovecraft.

It is an interesting genre, the horror-comedy. Here’s another rather good example. By coincidence, it is also a 1985 release. (Hmm, if you believe in a deterministic universe, can there really be such a thing as “coincidence”? Can there then be a truly random component in a Markov Thought Chain? Does quantum indeterminacy rescue randomness and free will?)

Animate Dead. Although perhaps what Dr. Roth is trying to do is more like putting something into suspended animation, like Tawnos’s Coffin. Or maybe like Stasis Cell or Stasis Cocoon.
