The Dead Meat Wiki

Megan Halsey is the tritagonist in Re-Animator.


She was the daughter of Alan Halsey started dating Dan Cain at the Miskatonic Medical School, which is where her father works as the Dean. Later after Herbert West stays at Dan's apartment for a while, she dislikes him especially after discovering Rufus re-animated in a state of dismemberment.

Later, Dan and Megan break into Dr. Carl Hill's office where they find evidence that Hill is obsessed with Megan and has lobotomized her father. After Hill is killed and reanimated, he exercising mind controls over Dean Halsey, forcing him out to kidnap Megan from Dan.

West and Dan track Halsey to the morgue, where they find Hill's body holding his head in a compromising position over a restrained Megan. West distracts Hill while Dan frees Megan. Hill reveals that he has re-animated and lobotomized several corpses from the morgue to do his bidding. However, Megan manages to get through to her father, who fights off the other corpses long enough for Dan and Megan to escape. In the ensuing chaos, Halsey is torn to pieces by the corpses after he destroys Hill's head and West injects Hill's body with what he believes is a lethal overdose of the reagent which began to destroy Hill's body. Hill's body mutates horribly and attacks West, who screams out to Dan to save his work as he continues fighting.



Megan's Death

Dan retrieves the satchel containing West's reagent. As Dan and Megan run from the morgue, one of the re-animated corpses attacks and kills Megan. Dan takes her to the hospital emergency room and tries in vain to revive her. In despair, he injects her with reagent. Just as the scene fades to black, Megan screams, implying that she has been re-animated until in the sequel that it backfired and that Megan's heart was stowed away until Herbert and Dan use it later to create The Bride of Re-animator.
