The set for Jesse's bedroom is the same one used for Billy's. Posters and furniture were re-arranged to change the look. See more »
When Ed first looks at the corpse he's going to behead, the hair is matted, dirty, and covered in cobwebs. When he lifts the head to put it in the bag, the hair is loose and clean. See more »
Hello? Hello, is there anybody out there? Come in, come in. Can you hear me? Is anybody out there? Hello? Can you tell us where to go?
Come to the hospital.
Sure, we'll be right there!
Hold it, hold it! Uh, pardon me, but would you mind telling me who the President of the United States is?
Um, Harry Truman.
Who's Harry Truman?
They want brains, we'll give them brains.

In this sequel to 'The Return of the Living Dead', three neighborhood kids stumble upon one of those army drums and accidently release the gas that revives the dead. What follows is basically the same horror mayhem as its predecessor. Zombies rise from the graveyard and remarkably manage to eat the brains of everyone except for the few people within which the movie revolves around. The two movies are pretty much similar in terms of content, but what is lacking this time around is freshness.
The first movie took a satirical approach to George Romero's 'Night of the Living Dead', and it worked in terms of humor and creepy fun. In this film, which is basically a carbon copy of the first, it is not quite as much fun. Rather, it seems to be more silly than funny. The script strains for humor throughout the movie, particularly in a scene in which the movie mocks Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' video. But its flaws don't really matter because this is not the kind of movie to be taken seriously. I guess that it can be a decent movie to watch on a Halloween night.
