HERBERT WEST HAS A GOOD HEAD ON HIS SHOULDERS... AND ANOTHER ONE ON HIS DESK.

In their first collaboration, director Stuart Gordon and star Jeffrey Combs take an H.P. Lovecraft short story and turn it into one of the most endearing and enduring of 80s splatter classics. When a medical student develops a serum that makes the finality of death much less final, all bets are off. With horror diva Barbara Crampton and a perfect balance of grue, glee and guts. As the great critic Joe Bob Briggs said, “the only movie ever made where an actor gets his head cut off halfway through the movie, but finishes the movie.”
