* DeadpanSnarker:DeadpanSnarker: West. Sometimes it isn't even verbal, like when he kept snapping his pencils to interrupt a professor he didn't agree with.

* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Surprisingly averted, despite teasing at this outcome several times; a black dude or two ''does'' die, but only among many other paler-skinned victims, and of course none of them ''stay'' dead.

''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 [[HoYay homoerotic subtext]] between Herbert and Dan. Basically, there's [[MultipleDemographicAppeal something for everyone]].

Added DiffLines:

* NamedByTheAdaptation: Dan Cain. In the original novella, West's reluctant sidekick is the narrator and never gets around to mentioning his own name.

''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).
