More Brains! A Return to the Living Dead: Essential viewing for fans of the series
26 November 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Let it be known I love the Return Of The Living Dead franchise, well 3/5 of them anyway.

I rank them up there with Romeros work, they are campy energetic fun zombie flicks.

This documentary focuses on the legacy of the first movie and as per this type of film tells the story of its origins, production, special effects and whats happened with it since.

Including interviews with all surviving cast members this was a real treat as many of them are very charismatic and delivered fantastic dialogue.

Sadly it starts slow, the first quarter of the documentary regarding its financing and opening production is very boring.

By the sounds of it the whole thing was a nightmare, full of arguments, dangerous work environment and creative issues.

Thankfully the end result turned out to be an iconic great piece of cinema and this is essential viewing for fans of the movie.

Kudos to the cast, you delivered in the movie and provided fantastic content here as well.

The Good:

Interviews are awesome

Comedy artwork is a nice touch

The Bad:

The movies background is alarmingly boring

Things I Learnt From This Documentary:

Dan O'Bannon sounded like a very questionable human being

James Karen needs to be interviewed more, dude is a riot

Leslie Nielsen was nearly in Return Of The Living Dead!
