The dead are back… The Return of the Living Dead features a group of scientists who accidentally release poisonous gas that reanimates the dead, eventually turning most everyone into zombies who crave BRAINS! Out the same year as Romero’s Day of the Dead, Dan O’Bannon’s dark horror comedy helped in inventing the modern vision of zombie life. Although Return may be remembered as kitsch, it’s a whole lot smarter (and fun) than that.
