''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).

Dan's Music/TalkingHeads poster in the first film.film.

[[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.]]

* BookEnds: The first film begins with Dan failing to resuscitate a dead woman despite all his efforts. [[spoiler: It tragically ends the same way when he is unable to revive Megan no matter what he does, which makes him use the Re-Agent on her corpse out of desperation...]]

* Happy Ending: A RealLife example. David Gale had grown tired of acting and had been [[MoneyDearBoy doing it for the paycheck]] for years when he was cast in the first film. Much to his surprise, he realized that he ''loved'' hamming it up and actually wrote director Stuart Gordon a note thanking him for "''re-animating [his] love of acting.''" Gale's agent put the word out that he would be interested in more sci-fi and horror films; because of Gale's awesome work as the loathsome Dr. Hill, he had his pick of roles until his death years later.
