Trivia

(at around 55 mins) After devouring a security guard's brain, a zombie picks up a phone the guard had been speaking into and says "Send more security guards!" This pays direct homage to the original The Return of the Living Dead (1985), in which a zombie who had been devouring a paramedic picks up the radio in the ambulance and says "Send more paramedics."

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 movie was good but could have been a lot better!!
12 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The 2 parent zombies looked more like Borg Drones than zombies. But the movie did have a good story to it but could have had better acting and more zombie action similar to the 1st movie. The Lead girl in the story was well cast and played by a very lovely actress hope to see more of her in future movies. The zombies should have been the main focus of the movie like the first Return movie was. There was not enough focus on the zombies as main characters in the movie as there was in the first return movie had in it. It also needed a little more blood & gore to make it a believable zombie movie! The 2 lead characters were good but more focus should have been giving to the other main character i the movie as well.
