The Return Of The Living Dead
Release: May 15, 1985
Release: May 15, 1985

Middle-aged family man Frank (Jim Karen) trains teenaged Freddy (Thom Matthews) for his new job at a medical supply warehouse. In an effort to impress and frighten his young charge, practical joker Frank reveals that the warehouse basement contains a cannister full of a mysterious chemical capable of bringing the dead back to life. It seems that the cannister fell off the back of an army truck during an accidental outbreak of zombiedom. Frank and Freddy unwittingly inhale the chemical and release it into the warehouse. Turning to the operator of a nearby crematorium for help in destroying the suddenly undead specimens that surround them, they unwittingly awaken the residents of a nearby cemetary just as Freddy's pals arrive to party amidst the headstones and wait for their friend's shift to end. Meanwhile, Col. Glover (Jonathan Terry) waits for the call that his missing chemical weapon has been unleashed.. . . ACTORS- Clu Gulager - Burt James Karen - Frank Don Calfa - Ernie Beverly Randolph - Tina Linnea Quigley - Trash John Philbin - Chuck Jewel Shepard - Casey Miguel A. Nu

        you have parts one and two combined here in your review. in part one it is explained that there was a "typical army f##k up" as frank puts, that the shipping orders got crossed, and instead of the medical supply cadavers that the supply warehouse were meant to receive they instead got the canisters that contained the bodies of the corpses that were affected by the chemical.

        part two had the canisters falling off the back of truck.

        i love these movies, part one being my favorite of all zombie movies, with the romero movies right after that.

                this was a great movie. I love Zombie movies. But nothing is as good as the original dawn of the dead.

                    Actually, as of right now, there are only five. The first is classic, the 2nd tried to be funny and failed miserably, the 3rd wan't too bad as they tried to be more serious with it, and I can say nothing good about the 4th and 5th ones.
