5.0 out of 5 stars A modern zombie classic, 30 May 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Return Of The Living Dead [DVD] (DVD)
A good twist on Romero's living dead. This time the dead are rising due to chemicals from chopped up living dead bodies being burned and their ashes combining with rain and falling onto a graveyard. Well, would you have made it that complicated?

The acting is not strong outside of Clu Gulager and James Karen, and Don Calfa plays a wonderful mortician with several clues as to a possible nazi past scattered around.

The punks are cannon fodder, only Linnea Quigley being memorable for obvious reasons. The sight of 2 of the male leads succumbing to rigor mortis is priceless.

The creatures themselves are a change from the hobbling zombies of yesteryear. Only the tar-man hobbles in his quest for "more Brains". The idea that they eat brains to take away the pain of decay is briliantly disturbing "it hurts to be dead". Add to that the classic line that has inspired at least one rock band "send more paramedics".

All in all this is a well crafted horror comedy.
