Both this film and the next entry Return of the Living Dead: Rave to the Grave (2005) stray away from the series' rules that the Trioxin zombies are no longer the indestructible juggernauts of the first movie three movies, but instead much weaker and sometimes are seen to be dispatched with no more than a few body gun shots. Prior to this film, nothing short of incineration or electrocution with extreme high voltage would destroy a Trioxin zombie. See more »
Throughout the original "The Return of the Living Dead" trilogy, shooting zombies in the head did not kill them, which 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, which may indicate that these zombies are different. This doesn't explain out severed limbs can be animated by Trioxin 5 though, and is most likely just an example of poor film making, or trying to adhere to the currently accepted norm in zombie films.

The Story, Screenplay, Direction and Acting Are So Bad That Become Funny
The scientist of the powerful and evil corporation Hybra-Tech Charles (Peter Coyote) goes to Chernobyl to buy some gallons of toxic waste to perform experiments with zombies. When a teenager has an accident with his motorcycle and vanishes, his teenager's friends, leaded by Charles' nephew, find that he was moved to Hybra-Tech. They break in the facility trying to find their friend and accidentally release a group of zombies starving for brains.
"Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis" is incredibly awful. The absurd story and the screenplay are among the most ridiculous collection of clichés I have ever seen. The lame direction works with a group of young actors and actresses that seem to be amateurish. It is amazing how bad the acting is, leaded by Peter Coyote, who seems to have had a neurological problem that deformed his lips. I guess the level of the sequel of this crap. In the end, this flick is so dreadful that becomes funny. My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): "A Volta dos Mortos Vivos: Necrópolis" ("The Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis")
