Some of the zombie extras were paid more to eat real calf brains in the film. Dan O'Bannon didn't want the actors to do anything he wasn't willing to do and ate some raw calf brains first in front of them. See more »
Clu Gulager's character name is spelled as 'Burt' in both the credits and on the 'eye test' poster in Frank and Freddy's office. However, the note on the door leading into the warehouse Office (which reads "No Cash in Safe After 5:00PM!") is signed by 'Bert'. See more »
The best $10 dollars I ever spent was buying The Return of the Living Dead on DVD!
This is such a kick ass zombie movie its my favorite I enjoy this movie more than "Dawn of the Dead" the best thing about this flick is the outstanding cast I love everyone in this movie they made it all happen with Dan O'Bannon and the crew Return of the Living Dead is a classic point-blank!
Overall IMO this is the best horror/comedy movie of all time I think its tops Evil Dead everything this movie is a must see it still kicks ass after so many years.
