Based on a story by H.P. Lovecraft, this campy send-up follows a medical student who develops a serum that miraculously revives the dead. With his roommate and his girlfriend, he reanimates a corpse -- but he doesn't factor in certain complications.

Lovecraft's young scientist brings dead back to life. Morbid sense of humor required. Read the review

It's this kind of flat-footed stuff that gives garbage a bad name.
Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader  full review
Pic has a grisly sense of humor, and sometimes is so gross and over the top the film tips over into a bizarre comedy.
Variety Staff, Variety  full review
All of this, ingenious as it may be and much as it will redound to Mr. Gordon's credit in hard-core horror circles, is absolutely to be avoided by anyone not in the mood for a major bloodbath.
Janet Maslin, New York Times  full review
We have been assaulted by a lurid imagination, amazed by unspeakable sights, blind-sided by the movie's curiously dry sense of humor. I guess that's our money's worth.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
