Trivia

The chemical that brought the dead back to life in the previous Return of the Living Dead films was 2-4-5 Tioxin. In this film the chemical is referred to as Trioxin 5. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the original "The Return of the Living Dead" trilogy, shooting zombies in the head did NOT kill them. That was a key plot point. Yet in this film, it seems to work. However, the name of the gas changes from 2-4-5 Trioxin, to Trioxin 5. This, along with the fact that a head shot kills the zombies, indicates that The military probably modified the gas to make it easier to destroy the zombies in case of emergency. See more »

The Story, Screenplay, Direction and Acting Are So Bad That Become Funny
18 December 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The scientist of the powerful and evil corporation Hybra-Tech Charles (Peter Coyote) goes to Chernobyl to buy some gallons of toxic waste to perform experiments with zombies. When a teenager has an accident with his motorcycle and vanishes, his teenager's friends, leaded by Charles' nephew, find that he was moved to Hybra-Tech. They break in the facility trying to find their friend and accidentally release a group of zombies starving for brains.

"Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis" is incredibly awful. The absurd story and the screenplay are among the most ridiculous collection of clichés I have ever seen. The lame direction works with a group of young actors and actresses that seem to be amateurish. It is amazing how bad the acting is, leaded by Peter Coyote, who seems to have had a neurological problem that deformed his lips. I guess the level of the sequel of this crap. In the end, this flick is so dreadful that becomes funny. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "A Volta dos Mortos Vivos: Necrópolis" ("The Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis")
