Directed by Brian Yuzna
Starring Angel Plana Bárbara Elorrieta
Tommy Dean Musset
In addition to all the blood and sex, one of the coolest things about the original "Re-Animator" was the cast. Combs, Barbara Crampton, Bruce Abbott and David Gale all delivered heart and style to their characters. While the first sequel, "Bride of Re-Animator," didn't have much of a good story, it did at least have most of this cast.
But "Beyond Re-Animator" only has Combs as Dr. Herbert West. The other key characters are replaced by Barry (taking over for Abbott), as a young doctor who hopes to be West's protégé, Elsa Pataky taking over for Crampton as the girlfriend who is predictably going to die, and Simon Andreu as the power-mad warden (taking over for the late Gale, who was a power-mad doctor in the first and second films). By the way, Andreu is a Spanish actor, and one of his last horror films was "The Blood Spattered Bride" in the early 1970s, where he played the husband.
The original "Re-Animator" was low budget, but had heart. "Beyond Re-Animator" is missing in the heart category. Combs also doesn't seem to be into his role very much.
But enough bashing: Here's what the flick is about. After being arrested following a disastrous reanimation experiment, West is incarcerated for 13 years. His experiments are only able to continue after the protégé character shows up, deeply interested in helping the aging West, even though the mad Frankenstein-type was responsible for the death of the legit young doc's own sister. This time, West has figured out a way of resurrecting the dead apparently without having the creatures turning into blood-thirsty homicidal maniacs. Pataky's reporter wanders around the prison looking for a big scoop, while the warden tries to make the moves on her.
Naturally, all hell breaks loose. It's pretty entertaining, gruesome fare – filmed in Spain but set in America. There's a disastrous blow-job scene that belongs in "Caligula", a stomach explosion, an eye pops out, a man without legs torments West, and a woman's breast is bitten. Yes, it's all pretty gruesome (and thankfully free of CGI) but doesn't carry the bite of what we saw in Part 1. "Beyond Re-Animator" is an example of Yuzna being mediocre . This director's work has varied from the sublime ("The Dentist") to the awful ("Faust"). This lies somewhere in between, more toward the good than the bad. But he's done better. It's not as good as Part 2 either, itself a flawed movie. Hopefully it will be the last entry in the franchise, unless Stuart Gordon can be brought back.

Posted by Bryan on May 15, 2008Overall, it was a decent movie. The first movie was much better
Posted by FATORSON on June 9, 2008I thought this was a very poor follow up to what was a BRILLIANT film in the case of the first and above average in the case of BRIDE ,it was hurried,poorly written,badly acted and with no kind of a budget(which is probably the answer as to why everything else was so bad)It upsets me to say this cos I really had hoped it would bring the series back to us ,but it didnt.AWFUL!!!!!!!!.
Posted by chris cox on March 25, 2011disasterious blow-job scene belongs in caligula? this film should have been released here in america by lgf as a directors cut. all the gore and the blow-job scene included. v-e-r-y little in horror every offends me!! the nastier the better!!!
Posted by Flipsider on July 17, 2011The problem with this movie is that the acting and writing are just too terrible, and Herbert West doesn't have anyone good to play off of like he did in the first 2 movies. Bride of Re-animator is a flawed movie but at least it has a few decently talented actors, and a few good ideas. This movie has nothing. If you're a huge fan of the Herbert West character like I am, I can understand that you have to watch this, but keep your expectations really low.
