Return of the Living Dead (1985)

Dan O’Bannon (author of "Alien") wrote and directed this near spoof of the zombie genre. At Uneeda Medical Supply warehouse (HAHA!), Army cannisters contaning corpses infected with Trioxin Gas have been wrongfully stored. Next thing you know the two dimwits working in the place (James Karen and Thom Mathews) have accidentally released one of the undead, as well as the gas which causes zombification. Through an odd and funny series of events, they end up cremating a zombie, releasing the deadly smoke into the sky where it mixes with rain which falls onto a nearby cemetary. Soon hordes of the undead are up and stalking the living. The zombies of this movie are different than most as they move quickly, can speak, and crave only brains. This movie is incredibly funny while still full of traditional zombie shocks and gore. You gotta see this one.


When a bumbling pair of employees at a medical supply warehouse accidentally release a deadly gas into the air, the vapors cause the dead become zombies.
