Movie Reviews

Sarasota Herald-Tribune - 10/10 by Christopher Lloyd Ed O'Bannon and John Russo may have intended The Return of the Living Dead as a comedy, but it's just too damn gory, too scary and too good to be dismissed as a zom com.
Cinema Crazed - 10/10 by Felix Vasquez Jr. For pure eighties, punk rock, walking dead, brain eating mayhem, this is the film to watch.
The Blu Spot - 9/10 by Jeff Beck Dan O'Bannon's The Return of the Living Dead is a classic of the zombie genre that delivers a good laugh with its silly, over-the-top nature, while also giving you several thrills along the way.
rec.arts.movies.reviews - 9/10 by Shane Burridge This isn't a sequel - it's a reinventing of how zombies had been seen on the screen
Film Threat - 9/10 by Pete Vonder Haar A fresh and immensely entertaining take on the zombie genre
Under the Radar - 8/10 by Austin Trunick [Return of the Living Dead] stood the test of time because it blended real scares and a few honest-to-goodness, heart-wrenching moments in with its humor.
Slant Magazine - 8/10 by Jeremiah Kipp A tongue-in-cheek, splatter-laden homage to George A. Romero's zombie pictures.
ESplatter - 8/10 by Steve Biodrowski An amusing, punk variation on the familiar zombie theme.
User Review - 10/10 by Vijay G My second favorite zombie movie behind the original Day of the Dead. A total blast that I never get tired of. The only real flaw is the lack of gore, which should be in a movie involving the dead eating the living. The acting is great, the writing and direction brilliant, the film has a great sense of humor, the effects are solid, the pace never lets up, the score and soundtrack are memorable, there are some good chills, and also there are a lot of scenes that'll stay with you especially the last few moments. This film was made from the heart and it shows. It's also held up beautifully.
User Review - 10/10 by Jeff C The most fun 80's horror flick I can remember. Also the 2nd scary movie I ever saw in the theaters.
User Review - 10/10 by Ethan L Probably one of the most (if not the most) fun zombie movie in the entire film history.
User Review - 10/10 by Jeff L One of my favorite horror movies,ever! Great, campy, fun!
