Product Description

Amazon.ca

"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 ("Well, it worked in the movie!" screams James Karen when a pickax to the skull hardly phases a lively cadaver). Not that it really matters amid the gore and gallows humor, but it does add a kick to the cynically sinister climax. --Sean Axmaker

"Over the top" doesn't even begin to describe this film. It's a rare movie that works as a satire of a beloved genre (NIGHT & DAWN OF THE DEAD) and stands more or less alone as a credible horror movie on its own. Unlike something like SCARY MOVIE, which has no pretensions of telling a serious story amidst all the humor, this one is a great zombie movie first, and a gentle parody second.
Set primarily in a medical supply warehouse, a funeral home and a graveyard (how's that for a trifecta of great locations!), we follow the story of what happens when a long hidden government "nerve agent" is released and it turns out it has the power to reanimate the dead. And I don't mean intact corpses. It raises body parts, including, memorably, the remains of a dog that was cut in half (for classroom purposes). The shot of the poor creature, normal on one side and organ's exposed on the other, trying to run, sticks with you. It's disturbing, gross, funny and totally original.
The movie ups the ante with these zombies too. They CAN'T be killed with a shot to the head. In fact, nothing short of totally burning them up in a crematorium does the trick. When warehouse owner Clu Gallagher shows up at the funeral home with a pile of twitching plastic bags, that is a GREAT, grisly moment. Another great touch was having the two characters who breathed in the agent directly (when they were still alive) go straight from being alive to being zombies without all that annoying dieing stuff! The paramedics examine the shivering, but conscious and coherent men, only to discover they have NO heartbeat or blood pressure. Cool idea!
The movie is mostly populated with a bunch of obnoxious teenagers partying at the cemetary.

Taking the old zombie/living dead legends and movie treatments, and then standing them on their ears, RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD is a perversely funny and, yet, fiercely frightening movie. A combination of "The Night of the Living Dead," "Thriller", and a little bit of "Sid and Nancy", RETURN OF THE LIVING Dead is a great punk horror film. The tag-lines are hysterical. (My favorite: "Hey, guys, how can you kill something that's already dead?" "You know, Frank, the kid's got a good point there")
Some gruesome special effects, especially the make-up, are effective, but they do not overwhelm the film. The cast, playing it up between tongue-in-cheek camp and true terror, is made up mostly of no ones but they are quite up to the task. RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD is a great horror comedy.

In this sequel of N.O.T.L.D, a mortician I guess you could say, cremated a Zombie and the smoke from his ashes created acid rain which brought the dead back to life. Like I said it's not the common zombie flick, in this sequel the zombies run and talk, which is kind of a disappointment, but it was something different plus it wasnt a Romero film but it was pretty good. Its worth buying and holding on to. It was pretty cool when they basically interviewed the Head of a zombie to ask why it was killing people, so that was a plus. Pretty good and like I said its definately worth buying.

Director: Dan O'Bannon
Cast: Clu Gulager, James Karen, Thom Matthews, John Calfa.
Running Time: 91 minutes.
Rated R for violence, gore, nudity, and language.
Poking fun at George A. Romeo's "Night of the Living Dead" series, this campy-style horror romp is undoubtedly some of the most fun you will have watching a scary movie. Director Dan O'Bannon uses just the right balance of sheer terror and humor, combining elements from Romeo's "Dawn of the Dead" and Sam Raimi's "Evil Dead". "Return of the Living Dead" is a zombie flick for hairbangers, with dead people running around searching for human blood and brains while to the soundtrack of rock music.
A small Virginia town is terrorized by zombies when a chemical spill accidentally resurrects those buried in a nearby cemetary. The blood-crazed zombies are in search of human brains, for it feeds the addiction caused by the unknown chemicals. Clu Gulager and James Karen give good, quirky performances, but Thom Matthews steals the show. Although not a revolutionary film, "Return of the Living Dead" has superb makeup effects, a rocking musical score, and a satiral script that will bring out more than a few chuckles. Spawned two unfortunate sequels.

what can you say about 'return of the living dead'? it's a zombie movie about punkers partying in a cemetery in kentucky. if you haven't seen it, it's not as lame as that description sounds. i won't go into detail and ruin it all, but truly classic. but sadly, this dvd is not what i remember the movie being. i first saw this in '94 on hbo and it was great. now, i was expecting the same movie, but no...the music is some parts has been changed for example after suicide gets killed, there is no music playing in the background like before, as soon as they run out the music starts but there are no lyrics like before. tarman's voice has been changed to a deeper sound and it doesn't work. one of the zombies asking for more paramedics/cops voice has been changed but thats cool cuz you could barely hear him the first time around. it's a petty gripe, but it matters to me. if you want to hear how the movie originally sounded you have to turn the audio to spanish and hear the original music, it also works the same with the commentary but well...its commentary and you don't hear much of it all.
as for the rest...well the text of the back of the case is pretty wrong because freddy doesn't work at an army surplus store. the tv spots are pretty much the same and alter the details of when the movie is going to be released. you can tell this movie wasn't given the respect it deserved. but still...i give it a 4 instead of a 3 because it's 'return of the living dead' and its actually being released again. i can only hope one day someone will release a copy of the original and add all the cool stuff that was in the work print.
