"Who's going to believe a talking head? Get a job in a sideshow"

As a general rule I hate most stupid/silly 1980's horror movies.  I mean I see them as the exact opposite of everything that was great about the 70's.  They replaced gritty realism with sitcom-ish jokes and any serious ideas were banished from sight.  They became the mainstream and the mainstream became shitty once again.  That being said I always liked this goofy 80's take on the FRANKENSTEIN story.  It is utterly stupid to the core but the performance of  Jeffrey Combs as Herbert West is so much fun to watch that the whole movie is lifted up above other crap of the decade like the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET movies or the GREMLINS flicks or any number of super popular shitty waste of time comedies disguised as horror films.  You also get a bunch of gore, great practical effects of the time, the lovely Barbara Crampton bare ass naked and getting head by a severed head, a zombified cat and re-animated corpses running amuck.  Plus the comedy actually works within the world that director Stuart Gordon created.  I'm not sure what any of this movie has to do with H.P. Lovecraft but check it out anyway for a good time.
