Herbert West Re- Animator – HP Lovecraft

“Herbert West—Reanimator” is a short story by American horror fiction writer H. P. Lovecraft. It was written between October 1921 and June 1922. It was first serialized in February through July 1922 in the amateur publication Home Brew.[1] The story was the basis of the 1985 horror film Re-Animator and its sequels, in addition to numerous other adaptations in various media. The story is the first to mention Lovecraft’s fictional Miskatonic University. It is also notable as ahead of its time in its depiction of zombies, featuring corpses arising, through scientific means, as animalistic, unspeaking and uncontrollably violent creatures. This depiction is uncannily similar to the famous Romero zombies and other latter-day zombie interpretations that would follow in later decades.
