* DevelopmentHell: The long awaited fourth installment, ''House of Re-Animator'', where Dr. West is called on when the president dies, co-starring William H. Macy!
* HeyItsThatGuy: [[AustinPowers Alota Fagina]] is the medical student's girlfriend in ''Bride''.
* MoneyDearBoy: The original short stories. Lovecraft never really liked his ''Re-animator'' stories and wrote them only because he got five dollars per installment.
* TypeCasting: Herbert West was one of Jeffrey Combs' first lead roles, which is why almost everything he's done since, [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine with some notable exceptions]], has been {{Horror}}, and mostly [[LovecraftOnFilm Lovecraftian Horror]], at that.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: There have been rumors of a fourth movie entitled ''House of Re-Animator'' which has been denied by Jeffrey Combs on numerous occasions. The movie would involve Herbert West moving into the White House and reanimating the deceased vice president. Stuart Gordon has stated that while he did originally intend to create this film, he saw no need for a political satire after the end of the [[GeorgeWBush Bush administration]].
** Brian Yuzna has also planned two other [[http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/7883/all-three-new-re-animator-sequel-titles-plots-revealed/ sequels]]: ''Re-Animator Unbound!'' and ''Re-Animator Begins''. The former involves West working in a war zone and coming across the [[EldritchAbomination Old Ones]]. The latter involves West losing his memory after his encounter with the Old Ones, reproducing his earliest experiments, and falling in love with a woman. We also see a flashback to West's childhood. But like ''House'', these seem to be on the back-burner.
** A YoungerAndHipper, HotterAndSexier television series was proposed, but nothing came of it. Read about it [[http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/14356 here]] and [[http://www.chud.com/18382/re-animator-for-the-tween-set/ here]].
