"I love this movie!

I just want to correct the Amazon product description. The version pictured is the 2-Disc Special Edition. Amazon incorrectly identifies this as a single disc version.

The second disc is a bonus disc with interviews, etc. UPC is: 013131502190

***UPDATE: I notified Amazon and they corrected their description***"
Perfect balance of humor and horror

"I've read Lovecraft's "Herbert West: Re-Animator", and this movie is based on it only in the loosest sense. That's not to say it's a bad movie - it's one of the most memorable horror movies I've seen, and one of my favorites. But if Lovecraft saw the movie he'd either go into hysterical laughter or feel an angry sense of slander. It all depends on his sense of humor. (Somehow I don't picture H.P. Lovecraft as having the greatest sense of humor in the world!)

The short story contained no female characters and not even a mention of a female. So whoever wrote the Barbara Crampton storyline had quite an overly active imagination. Some of the scenes with her are the most memorable of the movie and probably the farthest things possible from Lovecraft's mind, and seem the result of some very sick, twisted, bizarre imagination.

In other words, it's a great movie, which you will remember and probably want to watch over and over! It strikes just the right balance between seriousness and campness. It never takes itself too seriously. Some of the dialogue of the Herbert West character is just obviously designed to be so unnatural as to make the audience laugh. Yet it takes itself seriously enough that the horror isn't negated by the humor.

The picture and sound quality on this are excellent. The picture is beautifully restored - very sharp and with strong colors, and it fills the whole screen. The sound options include DTS, which is always a plus. It doesn't have subtitles (at least not in the R rated version I rented from Netflix.)"
