Editorial Reviews

A college student finds a canister in his uncle's attic that contains a drug more potent than Ecstasy. When word of the drug, nicknamed "Z" for its Zombie-like hallucinogenic effects, reaches unscrupulous college drug dealer Skeet, he hatches a plan to sell the drug to ravers attending the ultimate rave party. But when the drug's side effects start to kick in, the ultimate rave turns into the ultimate grave as party goers drop to their death...then rise again to feed!

"Return of the Living Dead: Rave to the Grave" (2005) is, in short, not scary nor funny, another disaster in this series. I thought "Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis" (2005) was so awful, enough terrible to become the nail in the series' coffin, but I was wrong. They made another sequel which is worse than the previous "ROTLD." Considering the badness of `Necropolis,' this is kind of amazing.

Actually "Necropolis" and "Rave to the Grave" (the fourth and fifth entries in `Return of the Living Dead' series) were shot back to back in Romania. Director for both films is Ellory Elkayem (`Eight Legged Freaks"), and `Rave to the Grave" features some of the stars of `Necropolis' including Peter Coyote, Aimee-Lynn Chadwick, Cory Hardrict and John Keefe.

`Rave to the Grave' is about the high school students who survived the terrible zombie outbreak in the previous film. They are now college students and this time one of them finds a dusty canister in the attic, but instead of leaving it alone or reporting to the police, he and his friends take a sample of the slimy liquid inside and bring it to the laboratory in the campus. And ... here is the silliest part ... one student makes a drug called `Z' out of the sample and starts to sell it on campus.

`Rave to the Grave" relies on this silly one-joke idea about the zombie drug that not only makes people act like zombies, but actually turns them into real ones. The film runs out of steam halfway through the story, and the rest of it is about the repetitious battles between zombies and humans that are neither thrilling nor funny to see.

There's not much to say about Return of the Living Dead 5: Rave to the Grave other than it's actually worse than the movie before it. Return of the Living Dead 4: Necropolis was really bad and not in the so bad it's funny. What had been a cult horror franchise which had fun with the zombie genre in addition to putting some genuine scares in people, these last two Return of the Living Dead movies should pretty much kill the franchise just when the zombie revival is still going on strong.

Ellory Elkayem does directing duty for this fifth installment. He also directed the fourth film. I had thought that not everything should be laid at Elkayem's feet when it came to who to blame for the lackluster and awful film that was Necropolis, but after sitting through Rave to the Grave I have to say that whatever good will Ellory Elkayem built up with his funny take on the giant creature feature, Eight-Legged Freaks, has been wasted with his back-to-back filming of Return of the Living Dead 4 and 5. Elkayem films both films one after the other and I am going to assume this was more to save on the budget than any sort of continuity with the actors hired to play recurring roles. If saving money was the main reason then it sure didn't look like it. Except for a few hero-zombie (zombies given more screentime than most thus given a better make-up effect) scenes the film clearly shows it's ultra low-budget pedrigree. I don't have problems with low-budget horror movies as long as there's a sense of energy and enjoyment by those making it, but neither Necropolis and Rave to the Grave showed any one of the two.

Rave to the Grave occurs one year after the events of Necropolis and the teenage survivors of that film have now graduated and attending college.

I have no idea why some people didn't like this film. I actually thought it was very good and enjoyed it alot. I was really excited about this coming to DVD since it had been years since part 3 was released prior to this one. Film exceeded my expectations and so did it's previous sequel "Return Of The Living Dead 4: Necropolis". 5 star film. I purchased the Canadian UNRATED boxset which contained this movie and Pt 4. Got it at a great deal for $11.00. It will have more gore than both the seperate U.S. versions. Get this version of the two films if you can find this boxset still.

Hands down the dumbest film ever. The major plothole between four and five seems like it never happened and that kid didn't seemed to learn the first time. This time 2-4-5 Trioxin becomes the latest Raver drug, only to have Romero-esque flesh-eating zombies that die when you shoot them in the head.

Return of the Living Dead, the very first film, the zombies could not die unless you nuked them off the face of the planet! That means you can shoot them in the head and chop them into pieces, and the pieces will still come after you. Also, this was the start of the Brain-eating zombies, which was decided in the first film as Dan 0'Bannon didn't want to step all over Romero's toes.

This doesn't even register as a comedy, nor should be considered a film at all. I read the infamous Uwe Boll on here somewhere and that's exactly the kind of disappointment this goes for.

Bury this one in the Sierra Nevada somewhere, or better yet shoot the master print into the sun so it can never be released again!
