Romero's third zombie effort, Day of the Dead, came first, closely followed by The Return of the Living Dead, which was written and directed by Alien scribe Dan O'Bannon. Return is based on the novel of the same name by John Russo, wh... read more

“Dan O' Bannon, the writer of such classics like 'Alien' & 'Dark Star', made his first directorial debut with 'The Return of the Living Dead'. A hodge podge of comedy and zombie horror. The concept was conceived in a story by co-author John Russo who was also part of another little zombie movie called 'Night of the Living Dead'. O' Bannon wrote the script and was only going to be credited as screenwriter until Tobe Hooper who was going to direct dropped out. O' Bannon would take the zombie genre into a whole new level as director and give the genre new blood to play around with.

Supposedly based on true events, the setting of this particular story takes place at a medical supply warehouse where two men open up a can of worms in the form of a toxic gas. That gas spreads throughout ” read more

"The first zombie movie to not only introduce the concept of smart zombies but also the first to introduce the whole brain-eating zombie concept as well, the zombies here are very well designed. I especially love Tar-Man. Linnea Quiggley is extremely gorgeous as Trash."

Ultimate Horror Films (68 movies items)

" My favourite zombie film. Unrealistic and funny, a group of death rockers and morticians attempt to escape corpses that have been resurrected in a nearby cemetery. Infinitely better than the string of unimaginative and boring Zombie films that have been released in recent years. "

""Brains!!!" While I'm admittedly not the biggest zombie guy in the world (it's a genre that I'm tired of), there is no denying the fun factor of Dan O'Bannon's comedic Return of the living dead. This is an 80's classic, complete with a punk rock score, well written and hilarious characters and some of the greatest looking living dead that have ever been created. The dripping, vile Tarman, based on the old EC horror comics of the 50's, is the most fully realized and awesome looking zombie ever "
