No, No, Wait! Hear Me Out!: The Return of the Living Dead

The Return of the Living Dead The Next Reel

"The important question is, where do they get all the skeletons with perfect teeth?"

Tommy Handsome is back with his take on Dan O’Bannon’s 1985 zombie romp, The Return of the Living Dead. And before you hang up the podcast machine, wait, wait! Hear him out! This film brings some surprising horror chops in spite of the camp legacy in its wake starting with director O’Bannon himself… yes, that O’Bannon, of AlienLifeforceTotal Recall and more. If that doesn’t make the little hairs stand up, maybe you’ll get excited when you finally hear, in the words of a zombie herself, why she has a never-ending hunger… for brains… brains… brains…?
