Product Description

Return of the Living Dead 2 (DVD)

Amazon.com

Curious kids open a barrel of green gas linked to a mysterious military experiment, and soon a tenebrous green cloud of fog is making its way through the creepy town cemetery. Knowing exactly where this is headed is, of course, part of the fun in this tongue-in-cheek zombie sequel. Maybe it's not as fresh as its successful predecessor, but all of the key zombie ingredients are still well preserved in this second installment: ravenous "undead" in search of human brains, severed limbs with a life of their own, and lots and lots of shrieking! Taking a hackneyed premise that is a close retelling of part I, director Ken Wiederhorn (Freddy’s Nightmares, Shock Waves) rejuvenates the genre with sporadic genuine scares, lots of plain old silliness, and some literally eye-popping special effects. Followed up a few years later with the equally enjoyable Return of the Living Dead Part III, this is a fun franchise that reminds you of what '80s horror was all about: bad synth music, and perms. --Matt Wold

Customer Reviews

This movie is pretty cheesy, but a good cheesy.
Patrick
This sequel to one of the best zombie movies of all time, " The Return Of The Living Dead " is actually almost as good as the original.
Jesse Watts
Some people don't like horror movies, it's just too bad for them.

I should have listened to Harry from Ain't It Cool News. He warned fans that the music was differant on the DVD. But I thought he meant the songs. Losing the rights to songs, and putting different songs in their place for home video is nothing new. But it is the entire score that is different. And the new score is mind numbingly horrible. It completely ruins the movie. There is also a voice over narration at the beggining of the film that I don't remember being there in the theatrical or VHS version. And even more strange, is that when you switch over to the French language track, it is still the original score. This makes no sense at all. Warner Bros. really messed up with this one. I hope they re release it with the proper score. In the meantime, since I know Circuit City won't refund mt money, I'm going to see if Warner Bros. will.

I made the mistake of not listening to other reviewers comments about the change in soundtrack and bought this DVD anyway because I really wanted to own this movie. The new soundtrack that they have added makes the film completely unwatchable. I will now be selling my DVD and looking for an original version with the original background soundtrack on VHS or laserdisc. The studio then had the audacity to give the viewers a real kick in the groin by adding the original soundtrack on to the film IF you watch it in the French Language track. THAT IS UNFAIR and the studio should fire everyone assosciated with the release of this DVD. If you needed more time to acquire whatever rights there are to acquire for a 20 year old horror movie's background soundtrack, then you should have done it before releasing this to DVD. The movie, as it is on this DVD, is unwatchable and the music is GARBAGE. If you are a fan of this movie, DO NOT BUY THIS DVD UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. If you do, I guarantee disappointment.

The people who put out this DVD have totally messed up the soundtrack. It all has to do with noise. First off, there's different music in the movie. Next, there are all these new and odd sound effects that are out of place. Why bother releasing the DVD at all, if they're not going to do it correctly???

First off let me state that I agree with some of the other reviewers about how sad it is to finally get a movie you've been waiting for to find that it's been molested by edits. With the re-release market the way it is these days I'm sure we'll see a better version someday. My review is based upon the film itself, not this DVD release.

I think this movie is a fine addition to the Return of the Living Dead saga. My only complaint is that this film still doesn't have a special edition DVD release, much like the third installment. With cult films starting to make a rise in the DVD market perhaps we'll get the ones we want.

The story followed the original a little too closely (almost a re-make for our two witless grave robbers), but I believe this creation was an attempt to work with what the original had to offer plus a larger budget. (if only slightly) Also, the original PG-13 release? I mean come on, when is Hollywood going to stop trying to make these movies family friendly. It's horror for crying out loud.

Finally we get a DVD release....and a part four & five (barely).

Answer to reviewer from Claxton,Tn:
This is not a sequel to Night of the Living Dead exactly...with that series you have.
Night of the Living Dead
Dawn of the Dead
Day of the Dead
Land of the Dead
soon....Diary of the Dead
(and yes.....severing the spinal cord/blow to the head was sufficient to destroy creatures)

With Return of the living dead its easy.
Return of the living dead 1,2,3,4,5
(the approach of destruction for Zombies here was more realistic....for a movie anyway, lol....they couldn't be killed. After all they're already dead.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Having purchased both The Return of the Living Dead (1985) and Return of the Living Dead III (1993) at the time of their respective release to DVD, I couldn't understand why Return of the Living Dead Part II (1988) had yet to be released. I waited, and waited, and waited...and finally I got news from some source or other it was finally coming out...I put my pre-order in, and it finally showed up on my doorstep...too bad it wasn't the film I was expecting...oh, the movie is the same one I saw so many years ago, but something was amiss...faulty, improper, flawed, afoul, awry, in error, mistaken, off course, improper, imperfect, defective, deficient, and just generally wrong...I was unable to put my finger on it, since I hadn't seen the film in such a long time, but in reading recent reviews posted by others on here, it became clear I wasn't alone in what I was feeling (I'll get to it later)...

The film, written and directed by Ken Wiederhorn (Shock Waves), stars a number of actors, including Dana Ashbrook (She's Out of Control), Suzanne Snyder (Weird Science), Marsha Dietlein (Boiler Room), Michael Kenworthy (The Blob, the 1988 remake, not the original with Steve McQueen), and Phil Bruns (Corvette Summer). Also appearing are Thom Mathews (Alien from L.A.) and veteran actor James Karen (The China Syndrome, Poltergeist, Mulholland Dr.), both of whom starred in the first film, but aren't actually reprising their original roles but playing roles very similar....make sense?

So what is the movie about? Well, if you guess zombies, you'd be correct (what gave it away? Was it the use of the term `living dead' in the title?). Okay, the army is transporting these containers, containers filled with some sort of chemical that causes dead tissue to come back to life (such as it is).
