The Return of the Living Dead Review
Written by: The Creature
This is one zombie film you absolutely cannot miss. It's a straight up classic that every horror fan must see. It's an unserious sequel to the original Night of the Living Dead and is directed by Dan O'Bannon, who is responible for writing another horror classic, Alien. The film is just great 80's zombie cheese that I would be honered to see in a Midnight showing. The film has it's great cheesy moments, especially when the zombies shout, "I WANT YOUR BRAINS!!!!!!"
Some honorable mentions: The cinematography in Return of the Living Dead is fantastic, and the graveyard looks fantastic as well. The music in this film is brimming to the top with punk rock bands of the day. There's a mucky looking zombie known as "Tar Man" who looks terrific. The zombies are tortured by the pain of being dead, so they eat the flesh of humans to relieve the pain.
When I first finished watching this film, I was left with a sheepish smile, and I'm sure you will too. So in conclusion, this zombie classic is a must see. Buy it whenever it's available, because you'll absolutely love Return of the Living Dead.
