Editorial Reviews

It worked in the movie! When an army drum is breached and a mysterious chemical gas is released into a nearby cemetery, the dead return to life with only one thing on their minds...brains! The zombie menace quickly descends upon a group of misfits who must fight for survival as they are picked off one at a time by a horde of the undead.
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!

From some of the folks who brought us the Never Sleep Again documentary, which focuses on the Nightmare on Elm Street series, comes "MORE BRAINS: A Return to the Living Dead". I've been anticipating this release since I first read about it in the Horror Hound forum. I immediately pre-ordered it, and have been waiting patiently ever since. It came in yesterday's mail, a few days before the official release date, and I have just finished devouring it - from the main documentary feature through every second of the bonus features. I feel like this is an outstanding endeavor, well worth the time of everyone from casual zombie film fans to the most ardent RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD die-hards. Almost everyone who had a hand in the original film has a say, and it's the mix of the good, the bad and the ugly that gives the most well-rounded look at this iconic film. For instance: SFX man William Munns sure takes a shellacking, but it appears he was in over his head from the start. William Stout's story about Linnea's tombstone dance had me in stitches. And I was genuinely moved by Dan O'Bannon's final comments in his interview segment.

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...

From the people who made the greatest horror documentary ever (Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy)comes another solid feature all about the little zombie film that did, Return of the Living Dead.

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.

I had the pleasure of purchasing a copy of More Brains! from Thommy Hutson (producer - His Name Was Jason, Never Sleep Again, Inside Story: Scream etc.) this past weekend at the Rock and Shock convention. As a rather large fan of the franchise, I found myself greatly enjoying the anecdotes and stories shared by all the cast and crew. The few bits from Dan O'Bannon were particularly potent, nearly pulling out a tear or two. This doc more then adequately covers the first three installments of the RotLD series (the only entries that matter) and comes with a nice collection of extended bits and featuretts. Although the bar was set incredibly high with Never Sleep Again (the standard that all docs should be held to), More Brains! is a fine contribution to the new string of franchise documentaries popping up over the last decade as well as a great companion piece to any zombie-lovers collection.

Here's another treat from Mike Perez (NEVER SLEEP AGAIN & CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES). If you own THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD on DVD, you might as well make room for this documentary. This covers all the way from when Tobe Hooper (famous for giving us THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 1 & 2, POLTERGEIST, THE MANGLER, THE FUN HOUSE, SALEM'S LOT (1978), EATEN ALIVE, LIFE FORCE, INVADERS FROM MARS (1986) & CROCODILE) was signed on to direct to John Russo's script to Dan O'Bannon writing his script and getting to eventually direct to the movie as we know it today. They also talk a bit about the copyright court case with George A. Romero (NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, DAWN OF THE DEAD, DAY OF THE DEAD, CREEPSHOW, MARTIN, KNIGHT RIDERS, THE CRAZIES, TWO EVIL EYES, MONKEY SHINES, THE DARK HALF, BRUISER, LAND OF THE DEAD, DIARY OF THE DEAD, SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD) against John Russo and Russell Streiner. Another cool story they told was how difficult it was to find the right person to play the role that eventually went to Clu Gulager. One major consideration was Leslie Nielsen who would have been good. The bonus features include THEY WON'T STAY DEAD: MAKING OF RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD PART II, LOVE BEYOND THE GRAVE: MAKING OF RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD PART III and Dan O'Bannon: The Final Interview. I'll leave the rest for you to find out. Here's a list of people who got interviewed:

Thom Mathews

James Karen

Clu Gulager

Don Calfa

Beverly Randolph

Linnea Quigley

Allan Trautman

William Stout

John Russo

Jewel Randolph

Brian Peck

Michael Kenworthy

Suzanne Snyder

Brian Yuzna

and many others.
