The Return of the Living Dead

In Theatre : Unknown
Director(s): Dan OBannon

Two employees of a medical supply company accidentally release a toxic gas that raises up the dead. Soon the town is overun with flesh-eating residents of the local cemetary who are hungry...for human brains.

"Do ya wanna party?" challenges the soundtrack to this freaky and funny reworking of George Romero's "Night of the Living Dead". Paced to the beat of a pounding rock score, this comic flesh feast delivers both laughs and outlandish gore. No longer lumbering, moaning creatures, these lithe, feral, and cunning undead claw their way out of the cemetery and into the skulls of a human smorgasbord.

They even master the art of home delivery: "Send more cops," croaks a corpse into a patrol car radio. Director Dan O'Bannon even takes pains to explain their motivation between the tributes to the granddaddy of zombie horrors.
