HOUSE OF RE-ANIMATOR NEWS:

Yuzna Guarantees 'House'

June 8, 2007 -- Producer Brian Yuzna told UGO that "House of Re-Aninatmor" will happen: In fact, he guarantees it. "Actually I'm getting into some talks with companies that may have the financing in place quite soon. So it's not unlikely that it may get going pretty soon. I think it's closer than ever now. In order to bring Stuart back and have actors like William Macy and stuff, the budget has to be more than what I was working with. So this meant the financing was more difficult. That's what we've been having to deal with. If it was just making it with Jeffrey [Combs] on the level of "Beyond Re-Animator", we could have done it much more easily. But we want to have Stuart come back in and [screenwriter] Dennis Paoli and bring back Bruce Abbott and Jeffrey as well and try to cast it up. When we did "Beyond Re-Animator", I think I can certainly speak for myself and I do believe Jeffrey also felt this way, we were very afraid of doing it because it had been a lot of years since the second one and there was a whole new generation of horror fans." In short, there's no guarantee that Gordon will make the film, but if he does, it will probably be "House of Re-Animator." If Gordon doesn't return, the project could be something else.

'House' May Be an MOH Episode

March26, 2007 -- Barbara Crampton, starlet of the original "Re-Animator" (whose character was killed in that movie) told Dread Central at FearFest that "House of Re-Animator" may still be a go, but it may just end up being an episode of "Masters of Horror." The reason is that as a parody of the Bush Administration it needs to be done quick.

'House of Re-Animator' Project Is 'Asleep,' According to Jeffrey Combs

January 6, 2007 -- The defeat of Republicans in the '06 election and the end of the Bush presidency is bad news for the "Re-Animator" sequels that have been talked about.

At Fangocon in San Jose, Jeffrey Combs announced that the "House of Re-Animator" sequel is "asleep" because of the coming end of the Bush presidency.

 "A year ago I would have told you that looks like that's happening," he said. "At this time I'd say maybe the air has gone out of that. ... That's sleeping right now. I don't imagine that will wake up. The problem is the script we wanted to do is very topical."

So it doesn't look like the "House of Re-Animator" project has any hope of being re-animated.

New 'Re-Animator' Stories, Titles Revealed

December 28, 2006 -- The "House of Re-Animator" sequel currently in the works is first of a trilogy, and in an interview with Occhisulcinema.it, producer Brian Yuzna revealed the plots and titles of the other two films. He told the online publication: "Three more Re-Animator films with which to resolve the saga of Herbert West. The proposed first one, HOUSE OF RE-ANIMATOR would have West being called to the White House to re-animate the deceased Vice-President. Of course, by the time the dust settles, even the President has been re-animated and West is the power behind the throne. The second would be RE-ANIMATOR UNBOUND! West would have his own feifdom amidst a war zone. There his experiments take him directly in conflict with religion and face to face with the Old Ones of Lovecraftian lore. The final episode would be RE-ANIMATOR BEGINS. After having his mind pretty much erased by the trauma of Unbound! West is brought back to his senses (during which we get to see some of Westís boyhood) by a mysterious doctor who turns out to be his mentor Dr. Gruberís niece. Back at the medical school in Switzerland (where it all began in the original RE-ANIMATOR) West recreates his early experiments, but makes the fatal mistake of breaking one of his basic tenants when he finds himself having feelings for....a woman. ...

"Well, we are trying to get a bigger budget. Yes, Macy is interested in the role of the President and we would like to bring back Dan Cain to confront West for ruining his life. However, because the picture would be a bigger budget it has presented difficulties in the financing. I have doubts about the House of Re-Animator being too specifically a satire on the Bush administration. Basing an horror movie too clearly on current events can have the effect of making the movie out-of-date as soon as it is finished. To my mind the idea of West in the White House has a kind of timeless quality that deals with governmental power, hubris and corruption in any country at any time - especially this one. I like the idea of the government funding Westís experiments for their own political and ideological goals. Normally I maintain that politics is a more natural subject for Science Fiction than Horror. The best Horror deals with psychology, religion, death, flesh. But a horror film reflects the times in which it is made, including the political climate. I think that there is real horror in the White House today, and that if we can keep our sense of humor it can be the basis of a successful horror film. It would be great fun to see West running the government."

'House of Re-Animator' Update

September 25, 2006 -- DreadCentral just posted an interview with Brian Yuzna, with the best update yet on the status of "House of Re-Animator." In the interview, Yuzna -- who directed "Bride of Re-Animator" and "Beyond Re-Animator" -- says the project is still on. "We are working on getting the script to House of Re-Animator. Halcyon is organizing the financing and presales." We can also likely see Bruce Abbott return to the role as Herbert West's sidekick Cain. Abbott was conspicuously missing from the last movie.

"House incorporates what to me is the most important element of a further Re-Animator story, which is resolving the conflict between Dan Cain and Herbert West," he continued. "Bruce Abbott has been very supportive and I think he might enjoy having Cain go mano a mano with West." The next entry in the franchise will be set in the White House, and currently has the Vice President dying, then being reanimated by West. "The idea for West in the White House began as the concept for the first sequel, Bride of Re-Animator." he explained. "It took place during the Reagan years and picked up directly where the first movie left off and include a re-animated Meg. In the past few years Stuart Gordon has gotten very enthusiastic about the House idea and he and Dennis Paoli came up with a completely different version, which is funny and outrageous as well as being pretty gory."
