Scream Factory resurrects RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD (review)

It's "Party Time" for the living dead when they rise from the grave again in Dan O'Bannon's comic take on George Romero's and John Russo's zombie mythos.  Two bumbling warehouse workers inadvertently break the seal on a canister of military-grade pesticide and the dead erupt from the nearby cemetery trapping them, their boss, a quirky mortician, and a group of partying punks in a quarantined area with hordes of brain-eating zombies.  A cult eighties classic with a memorable soundtrack and make-up effects.
