Beyond Re-Animator (2003)

Beyond Re-Animator (2003, USA/SPA) C-96m. ** D: Brian Yuzna. Starring Jeffrey Combs, Jasno Barry, Simón Andreu, Elsa Pataky. Long-awaited sequel to RE-ANIMATOR (1985) and BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR (1990) is surprisingly good splatter movie about doctor Barry, who comes to work in a state prison, where he wants to collaborate with inmate Combs, who was responsible for the death of his sister before his arrest. And yes, he has brought the original green liquid that will turn dead people into zombies. Plot becomes increasingly wild and confusing, but characters are colorful and effects are outrageous. Splatter fans will find this a welcome re-animation of the series. Filmed in Spain.
