Re-Animator is coming to Full Moon’s streaming service with an hour-long reunion special

Last month, we shared the exclusive first look at the trailer for the new Full Moon movie Beyond the Resonator, a follow-up to their H.P. Lovecraft / Stuart Gordon tribute film Miskatonic U: The Resonator that will be re-introducing the character Herbert West. Beyond the Resonator will be available to watch through the Full Moon Features streaming service on March 11th – and one week before that movie is released, Gordon’s classic Lovecraft adaptation Re-Animator, featuring Jeffrey Combs‘ iconic performance as Herbert West, will also be arriving on the service. To celebrate having Re-Animator “back home” (the film was produced by Full Moon founder Charles Band), Full Moon has put together a one-hour reunion special that reunites Band and Combs with Re-Animator heroine Barbara Crampton!

Here’s the information:

Producer Charles Band and director Stuart Gordon’s 1985 Empire Pictures classic RE-ANIMATOR is widely considered one of the greatest horror movies of all time. Now, we’re bringing RE-ANIMATOR home to the Full Moon mothership in all its gory glory, fully uncut and out of control with an all new special edition!

In RE-ANIMATOR: REUNION EDITION, Band invites original RE-ANIMATOR stars Barbara Crampton and Jeffrey Combs to sit with him in the studio and reflect on the film’s legacy as well as their nearly four decades of making movies together, including CASTLE FREAK, THE PIT AND THE PENDULUM, FROM BEYOND and more. It’s the full, unrated feature film attached to a funny, revealing and insightful one hour special that is a MUST SEE for all RE-ANIMATOR fans and a heartfelt tribute to the late, great Stuart Gordon.

RE-ANIMATOR: REUNION EDITION premieres THIS FRIDAY (3/4/22) exclusively on the Full Moon Features channel and app, with a premiere on Full Moon’s Amazon Prime channel arriving next week. Spread the word!

Directed by Gordon from a screenplay he wrote with Dennis Paoli and William J. Norris, Re-Animator has the following synopsis:

Re-animation, the science of bringing dead creatures back to life, is Herbert West’s dream. West tests his secret life-rejuvenating potion on some cooperative corpses at a local morgue. It’s a success But only a temporary one – as the dead spring to life, reacting violently to their re-animation. Zombies are loose and now West cannot control the very beasts he has re-created. The born-again dead are unstoppable, even severed body parts take on life like so many split worms Herbert West has a serious problem – will he become the first in a new breed of headhunters or all of his woes coming to a head? 

Re-Animator is awesome, so I’m glad to hear it’s going to be on Full Moon Features, and it’s very cool that it’s going to be paired with what’s sure to be a fun reunion special.
