Despite having directed several horror pictures, director Ken Wiederhorn was not a fan of the horror genre. Many cast and crew members expressed in interviews that they were displeased with his lack of enthusiasm towards the project. See more »
The Zombie shot in half had lost his hand in the car window in the previous scene. When he lifts his torso by his hands to attack the gang in the hospital cellar, his hand reappears for one shot. In the commentary, however, the director mentions that this actor was one of several used for multiple scenes. His description suggests that this wasn't supposed to be the same zombie from earlier.

A careless Army officer whilst driving his cargo to a new location, (unknown to him) accidentally looses one of his canisters. A few days later a few children stumble across it. They open it unleashing a mysterious fog, which engulfs the nearby cemetery. This action revives the dead creating Zombies. Naturally they go for a walk searching for their favourite snack, Brains.
A fantastic B-grade film, with all the charm and grace of a true black Comedy. Humorous in the sickest of ways. And at least the army didn't react in the same way as they did in the first. I love this film (though not to the extent of Re-animator). Deserves a 8/10.
