Beyond Re-Animator (2003)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Beyond Re-Animator (2003) Although this is a somewhat needless sequel, far less gory and dynamic than the first two movies, it's more interesting than I thought it would be.The movie starts off with a reanimated corpse, freshly escaped from Miskatonic University, killing a young girl, which is witnessed by her younger brother. The police come in-and the young boy sees Herbert West, handcuffed, being put into a squad car.Cut to 13 years later, where Herbert has spent the last years in prison. A new doctor, Howard Phillips (get it?) arrives, who just happens to be that young boy. He has sought out Herbert in the hopes that they could discover a way to bring the dead back to life. Well, this is old hat to Herbert-and in the intervening years has come up with a new twist to the formula. He's discovered an electrical energy that constitutes personality-and by injecting it into one of the freshly reanimated dead brings them back to their former selves. That is, if the right energy is put into them.Howard Phillips falls for a blonde woman reporter, mirroring the Barbara Crampton female role from the first movie, and she ends up dying and being brought back to life (a la BRIDE OF THE RE-ANIMATOR)-and from there is gets twisted.It's great seeing Jeffrey Combs reprising his role-too bad that the majority of the movie doesn't deal with him, but rather the other inmates at the prison he's in (who all later become reanimated). But as I said, needless, and by the way the movie ends you know they have yet another sequel in mind. The thing that bothered me the most about the movie were the people's accents. Everyone is supposed to be American but the reporter has a slight Spanish accent and the Howard Phillips character has a Scottish accent at times! I guess that's what happens when you shoot in Spain and on a budget-can't import those actors in.
