** This is definitely a downplayed variation of the trope as of Beyond. While he escapes all three moves in the end, West was in prison for thirteen years, three of which were spent in solitary confinement, and this definitely seems to have traumatized West a little given how quiet he is in Beyond versus Bride and the first film and his genuine, terrifying anger at the warden for the aforementioned solitary confinement. Not to mention the closest thing he probably ever had to a friend testified against him.

* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: After dying and being reanimated, a prison guard in ''Beyond'' keeps saying "Dubious" after a confrontation with West in which he hears the word but doesn't understand it. When West impersonates Dr. Peterson to escape the prison, he passes the guard who says to no one in particular "Dubious? Dubious."

** Also in the first film, the opening scene where Dan fails to resuscitate a dead patient and is told by one of his peers that he needs to know when to when to quit. [[spoiler: He's faced with the the same scenario at the very end- this time the dead person his own girlfriend, making it much more personal- and becomes so desperate not to lose her that it drives him to use West's reagent on her.]]

Naturally also spawned official sequels. The first was ''Bride of Re-Animator'' (1990). Dan, growing uncomfortable with Herbert's experiments, decides that he will move out of the house that he and Herbert share. To convince him to stay, Herbert takes the heart of Dan's deceased girlfriend Meg and offers to create a body for it. Subplots include the return of Dr. Hill and a detective investigating the massacre at the end of the first movie.

The second sequel was ''Beyond Re-Animator'' (2003). Herbert West has been in prison for thirteen years after one of his test subjects killed a teenaged girl and Dan Cain testified against him. The prison has a new doctor, Howard Phillips, who has West help him in the infirmary. Howard is revealed to be the younger brother of the girl who was killed by West's test subject. He helps West continue his experiments in the hope that what happened to his sister will never happen to anyone else again. West experiments with nanoplasmic energy, which can be taken from a living person and put into a reanimated person, restoring rational behavior. It works. Sort of.

''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 ''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).
