Music Box of Horrors | “The Return of the Living Dead” (1985)

October 3, 2020, 12:30 P.M. Central Time  — The events that are portrayed in this article are all true. The names are real names of real people and real organizations. The punks are about, idiots are at work, and a barrel of a mysterious chemical with a body inside, lies dormant in Uneeda's Medical Supply basement.

Naturally, the government bungled the shipping orders and delivered the barrels of joy to a random warehouse in Kentucky. Now, could you have called this in to get maybe, I don't know, a hush-hush finders fee reward? Probably, but then we wouldn't have a movie to write about or watch tonight.

Why see this movie? One might ask. Well, it's one of the first movies that started the whole horror-comedy revolution. (Shout-out to Re-Animator as well, which is playing tomorrow night.) Another reason is that Dan O'Bannon, the guy who wrote Alien, is at the helm of this project. So buy a ticket, head to the drive-in, and stay away from any barrel that says, "2-4-5 Trioxin".  Without further ado, let's take a look at the cult classic, horror-comedy, The Return of the Living Dead. Below is information from The Music Box. Also, send...more...paramedics!

A quintessential horror-comedy, Return Of The Living Dead is a semi-sequel to George Romero’s original zombie classic Night Of The Living Dead. Notable as the film that introduced audiences to brain-eating zombies, Return expertly blends scares and laughs with a fun and funny punk rock aesthetic. Featuring genre favorites Linnea Quigley, Miguel A. Núñez, Clu Gulager, Thom Mathews, and Don Calfa.
