Having recently witnessed the horrific results of a top secret project to bring the dead back to life, a distraught youth performs the operation on his girlfriend after she's killed in a motorcycle accident.
James T. Callahan,
Following an ever-growing epidemic of zombies that have risen from the dead, two Philadelphia S.W.A.T. team members, a traffic reporter, and his television executive girlfriend seek refuge in a secluded shopping mall.
In this first sequel to The Return of the Living Dead, a group of kids discover one of the drums containing a rotting corpse and release the 2-4-5 Trioxen gas into the air, causing the dead to once again rise from the grave and seek out brains. Written by

Playing the role of 'Scuz' in the first, many of the closeup zombies in the second ('Pussface', ''Thriller', 'Jaw', 'Eye-Pop', 'Zombie on Car Roof') and finally 'Ballistics Technician' in the third.

Zombies are cool. More than that, they're dangerously cool. Sure, one on one, no contest, a zombie ain't near the threat as some of histories other great supernatural baddies, but they're still cool nonetheless. But, why?
Because, in numbers, they are near unstoppable. Not only that, but they're funny. Whether you're watching a classic like "Night of the Living Dead" or a turd like "My Boyfriend's Back" (hey, it fits), zombies always seem to have an erie underlying familiarity to them that just makes you smile!
"Return of the Living Dead Part 2" is the sequel to the 1985 cult classic of the same name with a "Part 2" tacked onto the end of it. The movie stars a bunch of nobodies, and if you watch the acting, you know why they're nobodies. It's just as well anyway, nobody watches these films for the humans. They're merely glorified snack foods for our main attraction!
Skipping the plot breakdown, one thing that is disappointing about "Return 2" is that the zombies a little more cartoony looking. One thing that made the first flick great was the make-up. Here, we're treated to tired FX, and in some cases, the same zombie baddies over and over again. Yeah, they can't die, but let's have a little variety!
The film is still fun though, and brainless enough to keep you off the radar of any zombies in the neighborhood, while you watch it.
I recommend you check this out of you liked "Return of the Living Dead" or are a hardcore Zombie fan.
