The upcoming 30th anniversary of Tarman and his voracious appetite for brains was recently celebrated by Scream Factory in their Collector’s Edition Blu-ray release of The Return of the Living Dead. While the special Blu-ray was featured at San Diego Comic-Con, I had the honor of sitting down with cast members Thom Mathews and John Philbin to look back at the making of the beloved movie, including their experiences working with Dan O’Bannon, the extensive rehearsal period, visits to the set by George Clooney and Eric Stoltz, and much more.
When you guys were making this movie, did you have any idea that it would go on to have this kind of legacy and dedicated fanbase?
John Philbin: We were just happy to get a job because there was a strike and it was hot and it was the summer. All the people liked Dan O’Bannon, »

Founded in 2001 by Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, Platinum Dunes’ remit was simple: low budget horror remakes from no-name directors with backgrounds similar to Bay. The more uniform the product, the greater the chance of predicting its success.
Horror had provided a dependable revenue stream for New Line (A Nightmare On Elm Street), Miramax (Scream) and Dark Castle (House On Haunted Hill), and with a commercials director at the helm, the resulting pictures, beginning with Marcus Nispel’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003), looked like Mini-Me versions of Bay’s movies. It was the perfect formula and it paid off in spades, with Chainsaw raking in over $100m on a $9m budget.
It also proved what Bay’s harshest critics had been saying all along: he had the instincts of a marketer, not a filmmaker, and was more interested in profits than quality pictures.
