I have been waiting for this film to receive a proper edition to own. Fortunately that edition has finally come. With the original soundtrack, the outstanding "More Brains! A Return to the Living Dead" documentary, and several other outstanding extras on top of a well designed Steelbook packaging, this purchase was a must for me and any fan of the series. I only hope more horror films of the era receive a similar respectful treatment in the future.

This is a classic horror comedy and it is still one of the best ever. Hoever I don't know why they haven't put out the second one which is very funny also. The third is out from a german release but that one is a straight horror film. The fourth and fifth were cheap russian films! That are also out on blu ray. But this one gets a really nice release on this blu ray. We get lots of extras and nice remastered picture. The dual mono soundtrack version features the original soundtrack and voice tracks. WHy they replaces some of the original dialog with new versions in the other soundtracks here is beyond me. But only on this release do we have the option to see the movie as it was released. The extras are great and I sold my U.S. release and bought this one instead. It's a region b europe locked blu ray , which is ok if you have a all region 3d blu ray player like I do!. NOW ,please second sight put out 'return of the living dead part 2' on blu ray.

For years i've only had the awful VHS of this film, so it's nice to finally get the Blu-ray. It was worth the wait as the film is still as enjoyable as it was when i first saw it way back in the 80's!

The picture is pretty good, a bit grainy in places but otherwise good for a film of this age. For anyone who hasn't seen it, it's a very funny Zombie film, featuring fast Zombies that can also hold a conversation (and use a Police radio!) The film also has some really good performances from a cast of familiar faces and unknowns.

The documentary 'More Brains' which is feature length really makes this worth getting. It's informative and very funny and features nearly all the cast in very entertaining interviews. They all have wild memories of making the film.

So well worth getting and at a great price too!

My favourite Zombie movie (and I've seen a lot!!) Brilliant performances, great post-punk atmosphere and soundtrack. It has tragedy ("It hurts to be dead") comedy that will seriously have you falling on the floor laughing, and in a bizarre way it's scarier than most Zombie films. The fact that you actually care about the dumb humans gives it an edge.

Also the ultra cynical ending is perfect (who says it's not political)

Personally I can't stand CGI effects, they always look the same and nobody believes their eyes.
In this film you won't believe your eyes either but for different reasons; the sheer grotesque imagination of the film makers will stun you!

Medical supplies warehouse worker Frank (James Karen) are in the midst of showing his young trainee Freddy (Thom Mathews) the robes, when the pair quite be chance, manages to unleash a mysterious U.S. engineered military chemical, which has the ability to brings the dead back to life, resulting in the repositories’ various supply of cadavers running amok in the shop. Aligned with their boss Burt (Clu Gulager) the group tries to get a handle on thing by enlisting the help of Burt’s old friend and local embalmer Ernie (Don Calfa) by using his crematorium to dispose of the still animated but dismembered body parts. Unfortunately this plan of action comes to spell doom for a group of Freddy’ punk buddies who are in the midst of partying it out at the next-door graveyard, waiting for Freddy to get off of work. What transpires next sets off a chain of unforeseeable events which could very well lead to the end of civilisation as we know it!
Will this rowdy band of misfits be able to fend off the ever-growing army of positively famished corpses long enough to secure an escape route or are they destined to be gobbled up in the rain-soaked streets admits the tormented and hungry cries for brains?...”It's not a bad question Burt”

A testament to what a great horror-comedy ought to be, combining a smart antiauthoritarian script, great lively cast, fantastic SFX and kickass music to insure that a gory-fying good time is had by all.

Been missing my video copy of this for nearly a year now so I'm glad to find it being released on DVD.
This is classic over-the-top gore/ black comedy/ horror, very much in the vein of Evil Dead 2.
The story is about a group of friends which gets smaller and smaller as the film progresses as is traditional in the 'schoolies go off to the log cabin for the weekend' type of horror films. Here, the first character has just got a new job at a medical supply warehouse. His new boss is giving him the guided tour, trying to spook him with ghost stories etc - gas used by the government went bad, remains of a test subject in a barrel downstairs, that sort of thing. Anyway the barrel is accidently cracked open and the gas escapes- as do the remains of the unfortunate trapped within. This gas then starts making the dead rise from their grave and its all hell on earth from there.
This is all fairly preposterous stuff but its meant that way. Theres not so much suspension of disbelief (ahem. zombie film...) as setting the stage for whats to come. The 80's seemed to spew these type of films out but apart from the Evil Dead bunch, the Romero classics and this they all seem to have disappeared (thank god!). But the cast do well to realise their characters with what they're given and they ARE characters, not the typical 80's almost-jock with a checked shirt and body warmer, looking either terrified ,angry or confused all through the film.
Director Dan O'Bannon (Lifeforce amongst others) has learned from his earlier releases and has gone straight for the comedy jugular with this one.
