Of the horror moviemakers who emerged in the last decade, Stuart Gordon ranks near the top: a dark stylist with a wicked, buoyant sense of humor. When he's at his best, as in 1985's "Re-Animator," he's capable of blow-away satire and outrageous ingenuity. Unfortunately, his latest movie, "Robotjox" (citywide), shows him closer to his worst. The weakest of his four movies to date, it's a modestly budgeted stab at a big lumbering, sci-fi action picture.

Independent filmmakers, even the talented ones, face astronomical odds against commercial success. Like most artists, all but a few fall by the wayside. Stuart Gordon hit it big his first time out. He made an ingenious horror film, "Re-Animator," for $800,000--not enough to float a "Titanic" lifeboat--and won the Critics Prize at the International Cannes Film Festival in 1985. His labor of love, now regarded as a cult classic, went on to gross almost $30 million worldwide.

Stuart Gordon--best known as the director of gore-fests like "Re-Animator" and "From Beyond" and the forthcoming "Robojox" (all from Empire Pics)--is finally going to make a movie his kids can see. Said Gordon: "My partner Brian Yuzna and I both have young children (Gordon's daughters are 5 and 9) . . . and both of us remember seeing great movies when we were kids. And those type of films simply don't exist anymore."

Stuart Gordon's startling free adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Pit and the Pendulum" (at the UA Egyptian) has everything one would expect of the director of "Re-Animator": bravura style, superb production design, an atmospheric play of light and shadow, an appropriately heady romantic score, strong performances--and a darkly comic, even campy sense of humor.
