The Return of the Living Dead (1985)

Country:  USA

Director:  Dan O’Bannon

Main Stars:  Clu Gulager, James Karen, Don Calfa, Linnea Quigley

Storyline:  An accident at a medical supply house releases a deadly gas which brings the dead back to life.










Review (Spoils):  Humour with blood what is there not to love? We have accident at a medical suppy warehouse that leaks a gas which brings the dead back to life. So we have zombies that just happen to feed upon a group of misfits punk teenagers. Why punk kids? Well because they love hanging around the graveyard.

This film is funny as hell and should not be taken seriously. It’s a pun to the classic Night of the Living Dead and it delivers. The acting is great; they played the parts perfectly which is pretty much beyond silly. We have fast moving zombies (which I’m not a fan of) but they it works in this film. The special effects are really well done and the ending brings out the gore! Dan O’Bannon created a horror comedy masterpiece.

Rating: This is a must see for horror fans but keep in mind its keeps the slap stick first and horror second. This is the beginning of a long series of humour horror for zombies but it is the best of the series. Grab some buddies, some beers and drink up every time you hear BRAINS!




7/10 Beers!
