We broke the news here on Bloody-Disgusting over a year ago that Herbert West would be back in three more Re-Animator films beginning with House of Re-Animator. No more details have come to surface other than that the trilogy would in fact happen with Jeffrey Combs returning to star. Today a bran new interview popped up online with Brian Yuzna who revealed not only the three titles but all three synopses! Read on for the skinny and the full interview.
Below are the titles for the next three Re-Animator films, along with synopses, click here for the full interview:
House of Re-Animator: The sequel, which reunites the original team (director Stuart Gordon, producer Brian Yuzna, writer Dennis Paoli and lead actor Jeffrey Combs), focuses on a Bush-like president who dies in office. His staff covertly brings in Dr. Herbert West to reanimate the Commander in Chief, and the expected chaos ensues.
Re-Animator Unbound!: West would have his own feifdom amidst a war zone. There his experiments take him directly in conflict with religion and face to face with the Old Ones of Lovecraftian lore.
Re-Animator Begins: After having his mind pretty much erased by the trauma of Unbound! West is brought back to his senses (during which we get to see some of West’s boyhood) by a mysterious doctor who turns out to be his mentor Dr. Gruber’s niece. Back at the medical school in Switzerland (where it all began in the original Re-Animator) West recreates his early experiments, but makes the fatal mistake of breaking one of his basic tenants when he finds himself having feelings for… a woman.
