So here’s the deal: I wouldn’t watch this movie again, but I will recommend you watch it because it’s kind of fun. It’s gross, but fun. The acting is good, the makeup and effects are phenomenal, but that’s where the greatness ends. Actually, the story’s pretty good, based on an H.P. Lovecraft story, about a student working on a reanimation serum that wills top the inevitable horridity of death. But, I felt like it dragged on and on, and I hated the weird, semi-sexual assault scene. Tired of seeing that played out in horror movies. This movie is not funny enough to be funny, not scary enough to be scary. Way overhyped, if you ask me.
