Comments:
One of the best zombie films out there

Back in 1985 this movie was deemed "unreleasable" by its studio.They (purportedly) recut it and quietly opened it.To their surprise it was a sizable hit leading to two sequels.I saw it twice when it came out--this movie REALLY delivers the goods to horror fans.

It starts off by saying all the events in this movie are true (???).It focuses on 2 warehouse workers played by Thom Mathews and James Karen.It turns out that the movie "Night of the Living Dead" was based on fact and the dead bodies are stored in the basement in air tight canisters with some gas keeping them asleep.One of the canisters breaks open, the dead guy comes to life and all hell breaks loose.Also, the gas leaks into a graveyard next door and all the dead people come to life...hungry for brains!And how about that group of punk kids hanging out in the graveyard--including Linnea Quigley who spends 99.9% of her screen time nude?Also, unlike "Night of..." these zombies move FAST and bullets don't hurt them...

This movie is strange.It pays homage to old zombie horror flicks and goes of on its own direction.The annoying, constantly swearing bunch of punk kids are only there to be victims--and they inexplicably have an innocent, sweet girl with them--Tina played by Beverly Randolph.The first half is very funny--expertly mixing laughs with some truly scary, gory moments.The laughs disappear completely for the second half.Then on in its a gore show and VERY disturbing.It's moves extremely quick, there are tons of people killed, the number of zombies is incredible, the special effects are great and the blood goes flying.But the change from humor to horror is jarring and some of the stuff at the end is VERY disturbing (Karens and Mathews' slow deaths are very upsetting and painful to watch and hear).

This movie is also helped by good acting.The punk kids are by the numbers (except for Randolph who is kind of fun), but Mathews is good and Karen and Gulager are hilarious in their respective roles.They all play it reasonably straight and it helps.
