''Re-Animator'' was not the first [[LovecraftOnFilm film adaptation of Lovecraft]]; there were waves of them in the mid-1960s (''The Haunted Palace'' by Creator/RogerCorman, and ''Film/DieMonsterDie'' by frequent Corman collaborator Dan Haller) and the early 1970s (''The Dunwich Horror'' -- Haller again -- and several episodes of ''Series/NightGallery''). But Gordon's film is probably the most famous such adaptation. It spawned a wave of [[FollowTheLeader imitators]] and {{Spiritual Successor}}s including ''Film/FromBeyond'', ''Lurking Fear'', and ''Castle Freak'' (all starring Combs, with ''From Beyond'' and ''Castle Freak'' also being directed by Gordon) and 2001's ''Film/{{Dagon}}'' (directed by Gordon).

* PsychicPowers: Dr. Hill apparently possess them, since he is able to control the minds of people. Sadly, this only appears in a deleted scene of the first movie where he is hypnotizing Megan's father.

** This seems to be the reason Hill's headless body can see what it's doing and knows how to tend to his head. There's also implication that Hill has a psychic hold over the reanimated Alan when the former releases the latter from his padded cell.

''Re-Animator'' is remembered for its dark humor, gruesome gore effects, transgressive sexuality, and violence against an undead cat. Less well-remembered, but more poignant, is the sweet, wholesome quality of the relationship between Dan and Meg. Others gravitate to the perceived [[HoYay homoerotic subtext]] between Herbert and Dan. Basically, there's [[MultipleDemographicAppeal something for everyone]].

Added DiffLines:

* {{Asexuality}}: Herbert shows no interest in sex or romance whatsoever and despises Hill for using his formula just to have sex with Megan. There is also that line taken from the second movie:

* AmbiguousSituation: It's unclear whether Herbert killed Dan's cat for use in an experiment or if he really did find the cat dead like he claimed he did.
