| Practical effects heaven
Rejuvenator is one of those 80's movies that is just a total joy to watch. It is low budget, but nicely directed, the actors are not all bad, lighting is good, and the practical special effects are amazing. The only thing that could be better in this film is direct sound. It was captured very poorly, and dialogue is hard to follow at times. Other than that, it is prime VHS material.

It tells the story of a scientist working on a rejuvenating serum that is extracted from dead human brain. He is funded by an aging actress, who is in a hurry to become young again, and you can tell where this is going.

This was probably made to tag along the success of Re-Animator, but it stands well on its own, and I wish it had had at least one sequel. I highly recommend it for horror movie night! It is rated R, but I doubt kids these days would be scared by it.
