Day 27 - Return of the Living Dead Part 2

Sunday, October 27, 2013 Unknown 0 Comments

Tonight's movie for #undeadOctober was Return of the Living Dead Part 2. What a crazy title and I don't mean just the length of it either. It is actually more of a remake of the first one and it is one that didn't really need to exist. That being said, it was still fun to watch with a group of friends because the cheesy plot gave us a lot to yell at.

I have almost nothing to review in this one because they took the same zombies, same makeup, some of the same actors, and only a slightly varied story to create this one. I really don't know why they didn't just tack onto the last movie because that could have been a lot more awesome. The first movie ended with a cloud of zombie causing gas spreading across a town, which this one had the zombies running around a whole town. I really have no idea why they remade it other than to remove the nudity.

As for the zombie review, there was almost no change in the rules of the zombies. They were created by the gas and it wasn't clear if it could be spread any other way. They were pretty much immortal and even destroying the brain or body was not enough to stop them. The only things they showed that might have worked was full body electrocution by 38000 volts and be sprayed by a military grade flame thrower. Both of those methods were not fool proof and took a very long time to even damage the zombies. I think I will have to rewatch the others just to see what else they throw at the zombies.

I think I give the movie a 3/5 because we still had a really great time watching it even though it was a pretty bad movie. It was just too bad they made so many strange decisions about remaking it or it could have been a lot better.

Only 4 more movies to go! Check back tomorrow for more zombie reviews!
