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.

It's this kind of flat-footed stuff that gives garbage a bad name. full review

Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

Pic has a grisly sense of humor, and sometimes is so gross and over the top the film tips over into a bizarre comedy. full review

Variety Staff, Variety

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. full review

Janet Maslin, New York Times

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. full review

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
