A discussion of cult films by two guys located in a basement somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. Matt holds a B.S. and M.S. in physics, and works as an aerospace engineer. Mark holds a B.S. in biochemistry and works as a research technician... both are graduates of Snohomish High School Class of 91/92 respectiviely, none of which qualifies them to discuss film in any meaningful way... so... "caveat emptor" and all that.

056 Re-Animator (1985)
"But you're just a talking head!" And so are Matt and Mark this week when we discuss Stuart Gordon's 1985 Cult Classic Re-Animator, based loosely on H.P. Lovecraft's short story of the same name. Matt and Mark get into the finer physiological details of 're-animation' and come to the conclusion that freezing your head, despite its promise of immortality, will not even get you close to the body-less monstrosity of the film's Dr. Carl Hill. Sorry Mr. Disney.
