Return of the Living Dead Part II Movie Review
Those unfortunate enough to be alive and remaining in the town are forced to fend off the legions of zombies, all of whom want nothing more than braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaains to munch on. But once a zombie chows on your skull, you turn undead too -- manifest by a gray-green pallor and a near-immediate desire to eat brains. As one character puts it, "Those brains... smell so good! So rich and spicy!"
The army is intent on containing the horde, and it opens fire on anyone trying to escape. That leaves our heroes (a random collection of adults and a kid) to fend for themselves as they hunt for a way to off all the zombies.
21 Jump Street director Ken Wiederhorn offers Return 2 as more comedy than horror, starting right with the cover of the DVD, which features an angry swirl of black cloud that looks more like a mean chihuahua than an evil force. Gags abound: Severed hands flip the bird. Zombies give up when brains are not forthcoming and even crack wise.
Given the abundance of films like this, Return 2 is hardly a classic, but it's far better than it has any right to be.
