Return is based on the novel of the same name by John Russo, wh... read more

Movie Reviews (301-350) (50 movies items)

" The first horror movie with running zombies that I can think of though what makes it more memorable is the comedy and that the zombies scream "Brains!" when they are hungry. Linnea Quigley's nude dance on a grave with a pink wig is also memorable. I like that it doesn't take itself serious and the humans are so stupid they deserve to be eaten. Don't know why though but I just didn't like the downbeat ending."

"Character: Suicide Relative/friend/other: Boyfriend Bio: Angsty punk rocker. Similarities: This resemblance is based on the time when I first met this boy (who is nowadays my bf) and got to know him. He was quite young and had similar mannerisms as Suicide. He also had a couple of piercings, bald head and a leather jacket. Suicide always kind of reminds me of that younger version of my boyfriend. The looks and the kind of angsty attitude is really the matching thing here. Tho he was never as i"
