Jeffrey Combs stars as Herbert West, a rather bizarre student who comes to Miskatonic University and brings with him a serum which he claims brings back the dead.
It does indeed work, but not the way it was intended. There is plenty of great black humor and gore and Combs plays the part of West perfectly. Barbara Crampton is the very sexy girlfriend of West's roommate Dan Cain, played by Bruce Abbott.
David Gale turns in an excellent performance as Dr. Carl Hill who hates West with a passion and soon finds himself a decapitated monster that is temporarily under Wests control. Gale makes the character of Hill mesh well with West and the two make a good comedy duo.
I am sure most of the people reading this have seen this movie and hopefully you like it as much as I do. The opening credits even steals the music from Psycho, but it's all so cool one does not care. If you haven't seen this film, then by all ,means get a copy and watch it and relish in the days when film makers could make totally over the top films and get away with it. There are several "over the top" scenes including one involving Hill and Crampton's character that could never be done today.
