His nephew Julian Garrison finds two canisters hidden in the attic of his house with his girlfriend Jenny and they ask their friend Cody to analyze and research the chemical product.

What The Hell??
20 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie sucked... period. The storyline was so stupid! It wasn't even good in a bad way. The acting is even worse than the story is. The zombies in this movie look really really bad. The gore looks extremely fake, and the zombies are supposed to be unstoppable in the return of the living dead films! They didn't even stay true to the first 3 movies! That's sad that some crappy company had to just throw the "return of the living dead" tag on the movie, and disgrace the old films. I don't know why anyone would allow this movie to be released. As a die hard zombie movie fan, I am offended that someone could possibly think this piece of crap movie was any good.

If your gonna watch a return of the living dead flick... i suggest that it be one of the first 3 movies. Avoid this one at all costs!!!!
