In keeping with the 1980s style teen horror flicks of the time, Return has it all. Zombies craving brains, midgets, scream queen Linnea Quigley running around naked, and a classic soundtrack, it’s written by John Russo, and it’s directed the legendary Dan O’Bannon.
A couple of dimwitted employees of a medical supply company accidentally release a deadly toxin, and a Zombie, from storage. They, and their boss, hatch a dimwitted plan to cremate one of them that they diced up. Little do they know that the released gasses rain back down to earth into the cemetery next door, and viola, the dead are ready to rock and roll 80s style. Meanwhile, a group of teens, including Trash, played by Linnea Quigley, are looking to kill time nearby and run into a bunch of undead looking for something to eat.
I liked The Return of the Living Dead. It had gore and Zombies, acceptable acting, and the usual teen scream plot. Not as frightening as the best, with little real suspense, but lost of gore and screams.Return of the Living Dead, The (1985, U.S.),
