Veteran director Ellory Elkayem is at the top of his game with this dark but comedic entry in the Dead series. Starring a cast of exciting and talented young people, the action never lets up and the thrills keep coming without let-up. From the discomforting opening scenes, filmed in the haunting locale of Chernobyl itself, to the darkly hilarious zombie battles, this is a motion picture made to please both the fans and casual audiences of the zombie genre. Especially effective is superb actor Peter Coyotee who gives a memorably inspired performance as a scientist bent on world domination. Coyotee is deeply menacing with a touch of humor in a portrayal that breathes new life into the mad scientist cliché. Most refreshing are the strong female characters in this film, very able to hold there own or more while facing the horror unflinchingly. The dialog is sharp and witty as the script incisively explores metaphorically the threat of the giant corporate mentality permeating American society. While not for the squeamish, Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis is a thoughtfully produced and at times brilliant film that is well worth the time of the most discriminating student of cinema and genre fan alike.
