William Butler Interview is OnlineGoon
Recently I wrote up an interview for a well known man in all of the horror genre, William Butler. The name is not familiar but do you remember the guy who never showed up for his party in Friday the 13th Part 7. How about the dorky guy in Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3. He was also Tommy in Night of the Living Dead Remake.
Now he has written the script for Return of the Living Dead 4 and 5. During the interview I asked him what the zombies where going to be like. Here is the reponse he gave us.
In part 4 there are your typical “Return” zombies. The same rules apply as to the other films in that you can only kill them by total inhalation. There are also another strain of zombie in the story that the government is creating – a cloned hybrid of flesh eater and machine, these have built in weak spots so that they can be killed if need be.
The zombies in part five are a strain that is accidentally created when a version of trioxyn gas is distilled and put into pill form. These zombies are not your typical – climbing out of graves variety, but instead fresh meat driven to zombie chemical insanity.
Our "other" site, Movies Online, had first dibs on the interview so you can head over there and read the rest of the interview.
