"I ain't in no mood to die tonight."

1985 was a banner year for zombie films, as two "Dead" flicks hit cinemas within the span of two weeks. George A. 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

"7.11. (DVD) "Brains... Brains..." No nyt pitää tehdä synninpäästöä. Näin The Return of the Living Deadin ensimmäistä kertaa joskus yläasteiässä telkkarista, jolloin odotin hullua splattermättöä. Saatuani tilalle komedian vailla suolia ja muuta kivaa, olin aika happamana. Kun pätkä uusintakatseltiin vahvojen protestieni kera Leffatykin ensimmäisessä miitissä joskus kauan sitten, päätin jo etukäteen, että paska mikä paska, en seurannut sitä lainkaan ja annoin jo ennen "

" Do you really need me to tell you why this movie is awesome? It is one of the greatest horror comedies ever made! After all - this is the movie that introduced us to the 'Braaaaain-eating' zombie types you see in most zombie related media to this day. Not to mention Linnea Quiggley. Linnea is an 1980's scream queen legend."

"Sanokaa mitä sanotte, mutta tämä on kyllä hyvä. Zombi elokuvien aatelia ja onnistuu olla ottamatta itseään liian vakavasti. Mukaan mahtuu myös monia klassisia kohtauksia, kuten alastontanssi hautausmaalla, lyhytkasvuiset zombit sekä useat kohtaukset missä ihmiset karjuvat toisilleen kuin viimeistä päivää. Plussaa hyvästä kasarisoundtrackista ja mahtuuhan tähän hyviä roolisuorituksiakin. Ilmeisesti monilla elokuvan faneista on valittamista loppuratkaisusta, mutta en itse ainaka"
