It's nice to be able to pick up something you once liked in your younger days and still find something to admire. Growing up a punk kid in South Jersey, I found it hard to find punk music. Sure, I could pick up the whole Pink Floyd discography and shuffle it about with Zeppelin, but the Sex Pistols? Black Flag? There was no way in hell I was going to find any of THAT at the local record store.

But this album flew in under the radar. Because it was a movie soundtrack, and because the movie was new at the time (I had seen it in the theatre and rushed to the store to see if I could finally find some music that people I actually identified with listened to), the Wee Three (or whatever) records actually had this one in stock.

And there it was--my first education in punk music, followed shortly thereafter by the soundtrack to _Repo Man_, the only kind of punk music that slipped through the fishing nets of banality surrounding South Jersey. I have gone on to absolutely adore The Cramps, but am slightly saddened that I have rarely heard a song by them as absolutely catchy and singable as "Surfin' Dead." This was also my introduction to The Damned and The Flesheaters ("Eyes Without A Face" is without doubt the most raucous track on this disc, something to play loud on the boom box when walking down the street just to make the old biddies get out of the way). There are also some heavily synthed 80's style new wave on here, with SSQ and The Jet Back Berries, but with metal like 45 Grave's "Partytime (Zombie Version)," one needs not feel at all embarrassed. And if you are looking for your soundtrack for when you've been partying too hard and have little left in you but to stare at the ceiling and sing out some lyrics, Roky Erickson's "Burn the Flames" is just the thing.

But for some reason it's GREAT! Everytime I listen to it I picture all the scenes from the movie. Which by the way is probably my number one all time favorite. I think this is the best movie soundtrack. Buy it Now if you're a fan of the movie.

Return of the Living Dead is the best zombie movie ever made. My boyfriend and I must have watched this film thirty times. It's hilarious! Scary! The scariest thing is that it's so realistic! The special effects are a little dated compared to newer movies like the Dawn of the Dead remake, and like all horror movies it has a moron or two who make stupid decisions when the time is right, but the reason Return really gets inside your head is that everybody else acts exactly like you think you would in the zombie apocalypse!!! They do things like barricade their windows and run for working cars and lock up their own friends when they're bitten and sick. Return also makes fun of a lot of other zombie films like the Romero classics which is awesome. The way it ends is a huge shocker!!! Maybe ten stars would be better!

I remeber first seeing this film when I was about six years old on video. I thought it was one of the best horror movies I had ever seen, and I had watched a lot of Horror movies. Over the years I must have rented it a hundred time before I had finally bought it. Then the music in the movie was finally drilled into my head. Then I had started watching the movie to listen to the music. I could not find this CD in stores at all, But I had finally found it in a punk music store that had it. Now all I ever do is blow all my money on punk music. I thank it all to this awesome f*cking soundtrack and movie.

This is one of the best sountracks ever made! Dark, funny and sweet all at the same time, the movie is a classic... the soundtrack adds to the experience!
In my humble opinion, the best punk/goth compilations are those not initially intended to be an "instant goth-in-a-box, just add water, black lipstick included" set, but ones that just HAPPEN, such as this.

Of course, I enjoyed both, with equal abandon. I just wish more of my fellow posters would have directed their praise of the movie to the DVD portion of Amazon, and heap the glory on this most excellent soundtrack, here.

A sampling of punk of that era, well represented. The Cramps play "The Surfin Dead", a tune that represents the spirit of both the movie and themselves quite well. A Beach Boys-on-a-nightmare-trip kind of track.

Of course there is the track that has come to symbolize the movie, "Partytime" by 45 Grave. A rockin' excitin' track, that should vitalize any punk party (damn bubblegummers can't seem to get into it, though). Two things. (A)Not until relatively recently did I realize the lead singer was female and (B)Apparently, this a relative tame remix of a song that was very dark and disturbing in its original context.

"Eyes Without A Face" is an OK track, but "Burn the Flames" sent me on the path of becoming a (minor)Roky Erickson fan. "Dead Beat Dance" is decent Damned stuff. "Take a Walk" and "Love Under Will" are reasonable filler. They won't make you buy the CD, but they won't make you get rid of it.

There are two tracks by SSQ. "Tonight" an uber-sexy punk song that makes you hunger for naked dyed-hair punk girls in the rain, and "Trash's Theme", a relatively mellow instrumental on which to fade the album out. As far as I know, SSQ seems to be exclusive to this soundtrack--at least this is the only place I can find them.

This is good starter-punk material, and just fun Halloween and party music. Definitely recommend buying.

Anyone know if this edition of "Return..."?
The problem with these films is that many times the producers did not secure the music rights for the DVD edition (because in the 80's, nobody knew DVDs were coming, right?). So it is all a contractual matter and most "cheaper" films with more restrictive contracts suffer from this (why... Read More

Soundtrack
I BELIEVE neither of the R1 DVDs contain the original soundtrack, from what I've seen posted here, but hopefully someone can give you a more concrete answer than that. I'd like to buy the collector's edition, but not if it's been "butchered" 'Tour Of Duty' style! :(
