Jeffrey Combs

commentary-frombeyond

Stuart Gordon‘s 1985 film, Re-Animator, remains one of the absolute best horror/comedies of the last three decades thanks to its spectacular mix of over the top, extremely bloody shenanigans and blackly comic sense of humor. The creative forces on that film (including Gordon, writer Dennis Paoli, producer Brian Yuzna, stars Barbara Crampton and Jeffrey Combs, and many members of the sfx team) joined together on another film a year later that once again adapted the work of H.P. Lovecraft into an eyeful of a movie. From Beyond never achieved the same levels of popularity or infamy as its predecessor, but it remains a fun, sexy and practical effects-filled romp into the unknown. Scream Factory continues their bid to become the Criterion Collection for genre fans by bringing the uncut From Beyond to Blu-ray for the very first time complete with a beautifully restored picture and loads of special features. Keep reading to see what I heard on the commentary track for From Beyond.

Drinking Games

It might not be October yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start gearing up for some horror movies. One of the legendary gorefests from the 1980s is hitting Blu-ray this week: Stuart Gordon’s tribute to H.P. Lovecraft, Re-Animator. While it didn’t redefine zombie movies, partly because Gordon was paying homage to Frankenstein more than he was the standard walking dead film, Re-Animator was a financial success in limited run theaters and helped launch the career of Jeffrey Combs. It also showed us one of the many uses of glow stick fluid. New on Blu-ray, it’s time to give this film another watch in high definition.
