Tongue-in-cheek horror from writer-director Dan O’Bannon, the man behind ’Alien’ and cult sci-fi classic ’Dark Star’. A pair of warehouse men unwittingly unleash a gas which can bring corpses back to life. They look to the owner of a crematorium to help them get rid of the undead but manage to raise the dead of a neighbouring cemetery instead - which puts their friends, waiting to party amongst the headstones, in grave danger... The ensuing chaos leads the world to the brink of destruction.

Many of us first saw Dan O'Bannon's lively and enjoyable zombie-fest Return of the Living Dead on video, and - let's be honest - we thought that those fuzzy pan-and-scan images were at the cutting edge of technology. And so it was, of course, for the day - but watching the film later on DVD was a whole new experience. But how technological developments move on! As the film makes its debut on Blu-ray, we can see how even that later incarnation appears to have had an astonishing wash-and-rinse which grants the image (and the punchy sound quality) an impact that was previously unseen and unheard. Everyone, of course, remembers Linnea Quigley's nude cemetery dance in the film, but what comes across on this latest version is that judicious mix of humour and horror which marked the film out as one of the best entries in the genre (not something that was immediately apparent when Return of the Living Dead was first released). The steel box presentation makes this high collectable, although it's shame that the tiny font on the spine makes the title illegible.
