Weak sequel to "Re-Animator" does bring back Combs (as the mad Dr. Herbert West) and David Gale (as the headless evil Dr. Carl Hill) and features some pretty good gags, but the gore and sex are toned down compared to the first film and there's almost no suspense.
Missing is Barbara Crampton, the super-babe from Part 1. Dr. Hill does now have bat wings grafted to his head so he can fly, which is mildly amusing. Also, Combs manages to be pretty funny, giving an over-the-top performance that almost outdoes what he did in Part 1. But all in all, the film can't overcome its gaping pot holes. Stuart Gordon also didn't direct this and it shows.
Yuzna is known for making pretty bad horror sequels, among them "Silent Night, Deadly Night 4: The Initiation." He did manage to make one great horror film once, "The Dentist."
i love all of your reviews(USUALLY) but this pissed me off because overall this is a very good b movie and i love brian yuzna.. what the fuck is wrong with bride? there really shouldnt have been a sequel to re-animator, BUT though this was made, it is perfect as a sequel..beyond did suck yes but this one is wonderful..oh and your return of the living dead 3 review is also immature and fuckin' stupid...return of the living dead 3 beats the shit outta the 2nd one(which was absolute shit)..brian yuzna took it toa whole new level(giving it wonderful effects and an amazing buncha zombies)

I have to disagree with this review as well. In many ways, this is a step down from the first movie, BUT... it's still well worth seeing, the final 20 minutes and ending packs a nice punch that makes it worth sitting through. This movie is very watchable and miles better than the complete piece of crap Beyond Re-animator. If you're a fan of the first movie, this one is well worth watching.

Alice has had a busy month- graduating first from Medical School, then moivng back to Gainesville, and then getting married. That's enough to make the average Bride's head spin. But, Alice is no average woman, handling all of the chaos with grace and charm. And, seeing her in her wedding dress, that's exactly how I would describe this bride, the absolute picture of grace. Looking every bit the Italian goddess that I knew she would, Alice sparkled walking down the aisle to marry Dennis. The two were so sweet and so in love, how could I not have a fabulous day photographing them! The reception and ceremony were held at the beautiful grounds of Epping Forest, and were the perfect backdrop for their Tuscan style wedding.
