5 REASONS TO WATCH THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD (1985)
1. THE CLOTHES
I guess the entire collection of 80's clothing styles are all represented within this group of people. How on earth did these people find each other and decided to group together, I don't know.
2. THE COOL HAIR GUY
I like the hair of that dude. It's got a bit of a young Rick James feel to it.
3. ZOMBIES RISING FROM THEIR GRAVES
It's mind-boggling how rare sight this actually is in zombie movies. In a way you'd expect every zombie film to have at least one dead corpse to dig his way out of his grave in a graveyard, but no, that very rarely happens. I'm glad this one has a nice graveyard scene, even though it's kinda ruined by an absolutely horrible choice of music. I know lots of people love the soundtrack of this movie but I can't stand the way they ruined the mood of many many many scenes by having some 80's happy pop-rock-punk nonsense played on them. Those songs don't fit in the scenes at all! The title theme is FANTASTIC though. I would've loved to hear that playing on this graveyard scene.
4. SOME COOL ZOMBIE SCENES
Even though this is partly a comedy, there are some scenes, moments and images that have some genuine creepiness in them.
5. THE SEXY CHICK
First of all, this is a great shot:
Secondly, she's topless and naked through most of her scenes...
Thirdly, the shot of her walking through the fog is amazing...
...but damn, her face and mouth in zombie mode is unsettling and pretty much brings every ounce of arousal down very quickly.
