Bride of Re-Animator ups the humor and horror to another level, now with stitched body parts animated by the mysterious formula that created quite a mess in Re-Animator. The two leads and the main antagonist return for our enjoyment, and they are still comfortable with their part. The characters are true to themselves, and they've even evolved a bit.
The effects are elaborately gross and in great number. There is strong continuity in regards to the original Re-Animator. We get the same goofy, gory and over the top situational comedy that made us drool the first time around. It is a perfect follow-up to the story told so far, but doesn't necessarily work as a stand-alone flick. It is a direct and faithful sequel meant for cult followers.
You can still feel a strong contemporary Lovecraftian vibe throughout, which is why some might feel compelled by it. It is also homage to Bride of Frankenstein. If you enjoyed Re-Animator, then know this one brings a lot of the goods back. The editing is a little lazier, the narrative convoluted, the pacing irregular and the script more experimental, but they sure got the tone right!
