For 2021 Film Geeks SD is turning to the wildly diverse American Genre Film Archive for a year of virtual film screenings and discussions. We have broken down the year into four themed quarters: First Films, Cult, Horror and Classic Hollywood. Each month a film becomes available on a Wednesday and then there is a Zoom discussion the following Sunday at 3:30pm. We are working on lining up the guests for the discussions and more information will be coming.


VIP passes are on sale through Feb 7 for $80. Link for passes is here:

Film Geeks Presents: REANIMATOR (Stuart Gordon, USA, 1985, Arrow Films, Horror)

Dates: May 12 (Film Becomes Available); May 16 7, 3:30PM (Discussion) with a Re-Animator The Musical Reunion for Zoom discussion

Category: Cult Films

 

H.P. Lovecraft and Lucio Fulci did not team up to make the most amazing gore-sex grotesquerie of 1985. But thanks to RE-ANIMATOR, they didn’t have to. Feeling like an amalgam of FRANKENSTEIN, THE BEYOND, and REVENGE OF THE NERDS, RE-ANIMATOR is where science meets chaos to produce an hyperactive overdose of gruesome 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.
