Re-Animator 1985
The story follows Herbert West, who comes to the fictional Miskatonic University in search of the knowledge needed to bring life to the dead. The school offers West little in the way of stimulation, and soon he's reverted to his pre-credit sequence ways, injecting his homemade, day-glow green goo into the fresh cadavers and checking for vitals. West manages to suck his new roommate Dan into the debacle with the promise of eternal glory, and the two are soon ejected from school for their meddling, much to the chagrin to of Dan's girlfriend, who doesn't trust West from the outset. A series of tragic mistakes leads West's rival, Dr. Hill, to the apartment to discover the truth behind Dan and Herbert's secret...
