House of Re-Animator May Actually Be Good?

Yesterday Fangoria confirmed some details about Stuart Gordon’s upcoming House of Re-Animator, which is the 3rd sequel to Gordon’s 1985 adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s short story, and much to my surprise, it actually sounds pretty cool.

William H. Macy has been cast as the President of the United States who kicks the bucket mid-term, but is secretly re-animated by none other than Dr. Herbert West, who will once again be played by the great Jeffrey Combs.  Of course, in true Re-Animator tradition, Macy then goes crazy, as dead people tend to do, and wreaks havoc in the White House.

My money says there is a scene where the severed head of William H. Macy rolls into an intern’s lap, or at least, a cigar.  Either way, should be worth some gory laughs.
