More Brains! A Return to the Living Dead (2011)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

If you were disappointed with what MGM extras was on their Special Edition of THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD then have no fear because this documentary will be what you're wanting. Clocking in just under two-hours, this documentary features interviews with the majority of the cast and crew including Clu Galager, James Karen, Thom Matthews, Don Calfa, Brian Peck, John Russo, Jules Brenner, James Dalebandro, Graham Henderson, Tony Gardner, Kenny Myers, Jewel Shepard, William Stout, Beverly Randolph, Paul Sammon, Allan Trautman and of course Linnea Quigley. Director Dan O'Bannon died a couple years before this was released so he's only featured at the end in a touching archival interview, which ended up being his last and this can be seen in its full version as a featurette on the disc. It should go without saying but just about everything you'd want to know about this film is discussed here and some of the best moments are stories about the early stages of production. This includes John Russo's original version of the story and what legal issues he had in regards to the name and George Romero. We also hear about why Tobe Hooper had to back out of the film and then we start to hear about getting the cast together and the six weeks of filming. Fans are really going to eat this thing up since the majority of the major crew are on hand and all of them tell some great stories. There's talk about their favorite scenes, how certain scenes ended up in the film and it seems everyone is mixed on how they ended the movie. If you're a fan of the movie then I can't imagine you not being entertained by this thing and it's certainly great getting to see the cast members as they are today. It's clear that they all have fond memories on the movie and are thankfully that it's still so highly regarded today. There's also a fitting tribute to O'Bannon but once you see his separate featurette/interview you'll notice that a lot of his relationships with the cast and crew were sugar coated here.
