No Re-Animator Remake…Yet

House plans crumble

Herbert West fans breathe easy for now and set the re-agent back in the fridge for another day.

Stuart Gordon tells that currently there are no plans to remake – or, ahem, reinvent – 1985’s Re-Animator. But, “Every now and then there will be a call asking about it,” he says. To which we reply: Just say no. “Well, that’s not my call, it’s Brian’s.”

“Brian” meaning producer Brian Yuzna who picked up the directorial reins with Bride of Re-Animator and Beyond Re-Animator. For some time he was developing a third sequel entitled House of Re-Animator with Gordon in which the series’ good doctor West would be called to the White House to revive the leader of our country who bears a slight resemblance to President Bush.

“I wish I had good news on that,” Gordon begins somberly. “But I don’t think it’s going to happen. It’s funny because I’ve been having second thoughts lately. I keep reading about Oliver Stone doing this movie about Bush and I kept thinking, it’s old news if you start doing movies about the Bush Administration. By the time [House of Re-Animator] would come out there would be a new President and it’s like, who cares anymore?”
