The Movie: Re-animator (1985)
What Is It?: H.P.Lovecraft isn’t exactly known for his sense of humor, so give Stuart Gordon a big pat on the back for finding the humor in the writer’s “Herbert West-Reanimator” series to create one of the wildest horror-comedies of the eighties.
Why Today?: On this day in 1958, Barbara Crampton was born. Give her a pat on the back too for enduring one of cinema’s most infamous disembodied head scenes.
