Doctor Herbert West is a brilliant man, nobody disputes this fact,
but his studies with a serum created to re-animate the dead are
frowned upon at the New England University where he works.
Herbert is soon forced to continue his grotesque experiments in secret,
with varying degrees of success. But as he gets closer to perfecting
his serum, his successes soon turn into an obsession. And when he
makes his greatest breakthrough the genius doctor will soon learn
that some things were never meant to return.
