More About Return of the Living Dead
Do you wanna party? The freshly risen undead certainly do in this horror-comedy that finds two employees of a medical supply company unwittingly releasing several zombies from cylinders in which they have been trapped for many years. The nasty brain-eating creatures are as hungry as ever, and eager to make up for lost time. Soon, the local citizenry is forced to deal with a large-scale zombie epidemic. The writer of ALIEN helmed this punk/horror pastiche.

A blood-filled spoof of zombie flicks, which fans of George Romero will especially enjoy (and you know who you are). The rotting cadavers of a graveyard are resurrected by a deadly, gaseous emission. Unfortunately, the gruesome ghoulies just love to dine upon human brains, to the "grave" displeasure of the nearby townsfolk. How will the citizens rid themselves of their gore-lovin', gut-munchin' visitors?
