They were still open when Tina goes to see Freddy and they were open when Chuck and Casie were being chased by zombies to the warehouse, and they were still open when Trash comes out as a Zombie, but when Burt and Spider are driving through the graveyard they crash through the closed gates.

"Return of the Living Dead" is an often hilarious, often frightening, often disgusting, and always entertaining horror comedy. The cast is great, the dialogue is snappy and very quotable, and the special effects still hold up very well, nearly 20 years after the film's release. Fans of the horror genre, 1980s buffs, or just folks who enjoy something different occasionally will most likely get a kick out of it.
