| Different Interpretation but just as Great
This Italian version, or interpretation of the H. P. Lovecraft short story "The Re-Animator", is almost totally different than the Stuart Gordon version. I haven't read the original material, but this is so much else going on, that I have to guess this one is closer than the other one, but that is just a guess. The only thing that is consistent, is the green stuff and yes it re-animates the dead. But this version has many more characters, and plot lines, and yes, it is very gory as you would expect. In this version a dead person re-animated and if killed again, it comes back to life in three minutes. But, where do they go for that three minutes? This movie goes into that, and the other big difference, is Herbert West's daughter plays a big role, and then there is a HUGE twist that reveals West's Son who is truly evil, and the ending is something else, it's pretty much up to your interpretation as to what it means, and it certainly makes you think. You really can't compare the two films, because they are so different, and each one stands very well on it's own. I like both of them pretty much equal, it's just this version gives your brain quite a bit more to digest. I loved it, it was so much different, and at 1 hr 19 minutes running time, it never lets up. Great movie, so I'll give it a 4.5/5 rating, Whenever you get a chance, don't miss it.
