Writer/director Dan O’Bannon (Alien, Lifeforce) puts an uproar­i­ous spin on the zom­bie apoc­a­lypse movie in 1985’s cult clas­sic The Return Of The Living Dead, star­ring Clu Gulager (A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge), James Karen (Mulholland Drive) and Don Calfa (Weekend at Bernie’s). Considered one of the camp­i­est undead romps of its time, the film helped launch the career of scream queen Linnea Quigley (Night of the Demons, Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama) and fea­tures a killer sound­track with tracks from many songs from punk artists such as The Cramps, T.S.O.L. SSQ and 45 Grave.
