Stuart Gordon — the horror-film director who helmed the cult classic Re-Animator and co-created the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids franchise — has died at the age of 72. Over a film career that spanned three decades, Gordon was best known for his ability to harness the weirdness of H.P. Lovecraft’s works and translate them to the big screen: In addition to 1985’s Re-Animator, a modern update of Lovecraft’s 1922 novella, Gordon also helmed From Beyond, Castle Freak, Dagon, and an episode of Masters of Horror, all based on stories by the weird-fiction pioneer.
