Cigarette Burns Jukebox: The UK’s premier cult rep house pull some personal favourites from the vaults to screen in the Roxy continues with a 35mm print of Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator.
Loosely adapted from the story by H.P. Lovecraft, perfectly mixing humour and horror with (un)healthy doses of gruesomely good gory effects. Cult film legend Jeffery Combs stars as Dr Herbert West a brilliant medical student who drags his housemate into bizarre experiments to re-animate dead tissue.
