RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD
1985, Park Circus/MGM, 90 min, USA, Dir: Dan O’Bannon

"They’re Back … They’re Hungry … And They’re NOT Vegetarian!!" Director-writer Dan O’Bannon’s gory, gleeful film is like the punk-rock godfather of SHAUN OF THE DEAD. In this unofficial "sequel" to NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, gas canisters leak at a medical supply warehouse, evaporate and then inadvertently rain down on the nearby cemetery and mortuary. Much skull-splitting, brain-eating hilarity ensues … along with punked-out Linnea Quigley’s unforgettable erotic cemetery dance! With Clu Gulager and Don Calfa as Burt and Ernie, production design by William Stout, and a great soundtrack provided by The Damned, Roky Erickson, The Flesh Eaters and The Cramps. "Send … more ... paramedics."
