The Return of the Living Dead Blu-Ray + DVD Review

The Return of the Living Dead Blu-Ray Review




Synopsis: Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the cemetery, those brain-eating zombies are back and hungry for more tasty mortals. A fiendish mix of outrageous humor and heart-stopping terror, The Return of the Living Dead is a veritable smorgasbord of fun (LA Herald-Examiner) filled with skin-crawling jolts, eye-popping visuals and relentless surprise! On his first day on the job at an army surplus store, poor Freddy unwittingly releases nerve gas from a secret U.S. military canister, unleashing an unbelievable terror. The gas re-animates a corps of corpses, who arise from their graves with a ravenous hunger for human brains! And luckily for those carnivorous cadavers, there is a group of partying teens nearby, just waiting to be eaten!


Review: We've been waiting to see The Return of the Living Dead again for the longest time!  This film has been out of print for over a decade!  The last time I saw it was on VHS!  Now, we get it on blu-ray!

Where the Return of the Living Dead lives is as a precursor to great films like Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland.  It has a great punk rock soundtrack, the reason for much of its out of print status, which really adds to the feel and the tone of the cult classic film.  Its a hilarious zombie flick that features smart, fast and aggressive zombies!  There are a lot of tongue in cheek jokes for serious zombie movie fans, so pay attention!

This new release comes in a Blu-Ray + DVD combo pack!  Its the best of both worlds..even if you don't own a blu-ray player yet, you likely will soon and then you'll have this one already in your collection, along with the DVD!


Interest Range: Horror, Zombies
