Today we’re talking about Return of the Living Dead (1985)!

Return of the Living Dead is a 1985 American comedy horror film written and directed by Dan O’Bannon, and starring Clu Gulager, James Karen, and Don Calfa. The film tells the story of how a warehouse owner accompanied by his two employees, mortician friend, and a group of teenage punks deal with the accidental release of a horde of brain-hungry zombies onto an unsuspecting town.

The film is known for introducing the popular concept of zombies eating brains, as opposed to just eating human flesh, like previous zombie iterations, as well as its soundtrack, which features several noted deathrock and punk rock bands of the era. The film was a critical success and performed moderately well at the box office. It’s enduring popularity has spawned four sequels, to date, and became a cult classic.
