This neat little twenty minute retrospective documentary interviews several cast members from the horror comedy cult classic "The Return of the Living Dead." James Karen reveals that he came up with the idea for his character to kill himself and two weeks were spent on rehearsal prior to the shooting of the picture. Beverly Randolph didn't see Allan Trautman as the Tarman zombie until he was in his full make-up and literally ran herself dry from crying so much throughout the shoot. Linnea Quigley points out that she had a special make-up appliance covering her groin and got strep throat from the exceptionally icky conditions the picture was filmed under. Don Calfa talked about weapons with writer/director Dan O'Bannon and listened to certain types of music in order to get the right emotion for a particular scene. Brian Peck previously only portrayed nerds prior to be cast as a punk in this movie and happily reminisces about his gruesome death scene. Everyone admits that they enjoyed working with each other. Loaded with choice clips and cool behind the scenes stills, this one is well worth a watch for fans of the film.
