Do you ever wonder about all the different ways of dying? Dan O'Bannon's outrageous splatter classic The Return of the Living Dead has continued to terrify and entertain horror fans for over twenty-five years with its delicious mix of blood, guts, sex and punk. Boasting off-beat humor, plenty of attitude and one of the most famous zombies ever committed to celluloid, it's easy to see why the film's legacy continues to grow.
It makes the pain go away... MORE BRAINS! A RETURN TO THE LIVING DEAD is the ultimate account of the tongue-in-cheek, stylish and apocalyptic zombie movie. It features -- for the first time ever! -- contributions from all the main cast as well as clips, photographs, storyboards, conceptual art, publicity materials, archival documents and behind-the-scenes footage.
They're back from the grave and ready to party! Through this definitive retrospective fans are finally able to explore the film's journey from the world of Night of the Living Dead to the mind of acclaimed writer/director Dan O'Bannon. Narrator Brian Peck (aka Scuz) guides you through the blood, sweat and tears as cast and crew look back on their experience in the graveyard creating the film that’s been called a beauty of a cult classic!

If I have any quibbles with the documentary, they're minor. A "Play All" option would have been nice for the deleted scenes. I can't think of much which could have been added, although knowing that similar series documentaries for Halloween, Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street have been double-disc sets makes me wonder...maybe an interview with vocalist Dinah Cancer of 45 Grave, whose song "Partytime" was such an integral part of the film...maybe a gallery of posters and promotional materials...convention footage of the reunited cast members...Read more ›
Because I write reviews for my own personal site, CAV Distributing sent me this early to watch and critique.
The main documentary, which clocks in at just over 2 hours long, goes over the first film in the series. Just about everyone who was involved in the making of the film, except for Mark Venturini and Dan O'Bannon who had both tragically passed away previously, were involved in the documentary. And just like the Elm Street Legacy, you really get to see the colors of the crew being interviewed. I was honestly howling in laughter during most of Clu Gulager, Don Kalfa, and Miguel Núñez's segments.
The main stuff covered was:
- Getting the rights to the name.
- Financing the film.
- Getting the effects to match O'Bannon's vision.
- The changing in crew that they kept doing
- Behind the scenes tension including Jewel Shepard being a priss and Dan O' Bannon being threatened by Clu Gulager
- The entire plot of the movie
To be honest, I expected this to be great and it was, but for some reason I expected alot more out of it. Its
great for what's there, but if it were just a little bit better, it'd be a definite 10/10 instead of just an 8 on my scale. I definitely recommend that you buy the DVD when it goes on the market in a week. Along with the doc on the first film, there are two half an hour documentaries about parts 2 and 3 as special features, a music video for "Tonight" by Stacey Q (the song that played during the infamous graveyard dance scene), a looked at the film's locations nowadays, and the last interview that the late great Dan O'Bannon ever had. It's fun, it's entertaining, and you should have one hell of a time watching it.
