Monster Movie Review: Night of the Living Dead (1968)

Hi Steve,

I really enjoy your movie reviews and they give me good ideas about which movies to watch that I may have never given a second thought ( not counting the one you reviewed here, 'Night of the Living Dead' which I've seen many times ).

I do have a suggestion for a movie review, possibly for a future Halloween block. I'd really love to hear your take on 'The Return of the Living Dead' from 1984.

I grew up in the 80's and was 11 years old when it came out. I remember it as one of the first true horror movies I ever saw, and it always stuck with me. Its a quality cheese favorite of mine to this day and I watch it every Halloween. There's one scene that still scares me to death every time.

If you're not familiar with the premise, a group of punk rockish teens and one VERY out of place preppy girl go looking for their friend, Freddie, who has a job at a medical supply warehouse. Freddie and his boss discover some old Army canisters in the basement and accidentally open one, releasing the "zombie gas" into the air. This gas, mixed with the rain, covers a cemetery Freddie's friends are partying in, and all hell beaks loose when the dead start coming back from the grave. Like I said, quality cheese.

You may be familiar with this one, but I don't believe you've ever reviewed it. Might be a good addition to your Halloween line-up. Plus I'd love to hear what you think about it, especially how it is that the preppy girl ends up with THAT group of friends.

Oh, and did I fail to mention...two words, and MST3K mainstay...Clu Gulager. Enjoy!!

Hope you take this into consideration. Thanks again Steve!!

Jay, your wish is going to come true much sooner than you might have thought.

The Return of the Living Dead is part of this series of zombie movie reviews. My video about it goes up tomorrow (Thursday). I hope you like what I have to say about the movie!

That's great news Steve! I can't wait! I should have put two and two together that you were focusing on zombie movies this year, but thank you anyway.
