With all the nonsense swirling about on other sites about casting, start dates, etc., it's hard to know exactly what's true and what's not. Do we cover it? Should we cover it? We've consumed a ton of aspirin over the last week as a result. I can tell you that this will be the final mention of Re-Animator 3D here until someone signs a damned contract.
Just about a week ago we told you about an interview in which producer Ray Haboush spoke about a supposed Re-Animator redux in 3D. Now we are here to tell you that it all could have been a load of crap.
The first pics from the for now homeless TV show "Herbert West: Re-Animator The Series" have shown up on Fangoria.com, and I'll pay you five bucks each if you can look at them without either: A- Rolling Your Eyes, B- Punching your PC monitor, or C- Laughing to the point of open weeping.
Most of us are fans of the film Re-Animator, and honestly, if you're not, I really have to wonder what the hell you're doing here. Suffice it to say that if the visage of a head giving head doesn't instantly bring a smile to your face, then you should be surfing elsewhere.

We just got a heads up that Comic Book Resources posted a whole slew of panel artwork from the upcoming Re-Animator / Hack/Slash crossover that’s due out in a few months. Click on the teaser image below to see all the panels (you’ll have to scroll almost to the bottom of the page). We’ll have more on the Devil's Due crossover as its debut approaches!
One thing I love the most about being a fan of horror is the sense of community you get when around like-minded individuals. Sure we have our disagreements on what makes for a good horror movie, but at heart we’re all fans and more than any other genre, we’re fans who have one another’s back.
It’s not the good news we’ve been waiting for, that Jeffrey Combs will be putting on his labcoat again and jumping back into the role of Dr. Herbert West, but it’s still pretty damn cool nonetheless.
You may remember a few weeks back (specifically here) we had a quick update from Jeffrey Combs on the status of House of Re-Animator, the fourth movie in the long-running franchise and the first in a proposed "final trilogy." Basically the news wasn’t great; they’re still waiting for the money issues to be resolved before anything can move forward as well as other typical Hollywood issu
