The dead have risen and they need 'Brains!' Dan O'Bannon's cult splatterfest is one of the definitive zombie movies and one of the classic horrors of the 80's.

Blundering medical supplies warehouse workers Frank and his young trainee Freddy unwittingly set off a mysterious U.S. military chemical that brings the dead back to life. And they've got a real hunger for human brains! Enlisting the help of the local crematorium they set off a chain of events that could lead to the end of civilisation.

Can they defeat the growing army of ravenous zombies? 'How do you kill something that is already dead?'. 'It's not a bad question Burt.'

This is indeed a little gem and what a worthy re-release this bluray edition is, absolutely packed to bursting point with bonus goodies any horror fan could possibly crave!! This is a bargain price too, return of the living dead is one of the most famous horror zombie movies ever made, a fantastic story with an electric cast to pull it off, a huge cocktail of blood and boobs too, this is a must for any fan.

They have done an amazing transfer to Blu ray , for a film made in the 80s it looks like a film made only a few years ago , sound and picture are crisp , good job .

The Return Of The Living Dead has got to be one of the greatest Horror Comedies of the 80's. I first watched it as a teenager on video from word of mouth around my High School, then bought it on Video, then on the DVD and now on Blu Ray. Those who have never seen it and were brought up on the modern zombie films may wonder what all the fuss is about, but for us who relished every ghoulish minute as teenagers will love the retro feel. The film still is as funny now as back then, but it also has a tight script with "Brains!" and the make-up (especially the under used Tarman) is great. The film also boasts a fantastic punk soundtrack. This is a cult classic that stands the test of time well and is up there with Fright Night, Re-Animator and Evil Dead II as the best horrific fun of the 80's.
Why should you buy this over the original DVD version? it's because of the fantastic bonus features it offers. As although the picture quality is not quite as crisp as you would like this does not matter as it only adds to the retro feel of it all.
This was the first and by far the best of the series and a stone cold cult classic.
See if you like.....
