Clu Gulager, James Karen

In a medical supply warehouse/morgue, a foreman takes the newbie on a tour when a mysterious container (that is home to a corpse, of course) releases a toxic gas. While the corpse mysteriously disappears from the drum, the other dead bodies start to come back to life... Dan O’Bannon’s first feature-length film is a comic twist on the George Romero 1968 horror classic, Night of the Living Dead. O’Bannon not only made the “Zombiepocalypse” more believable but he also inspired a new generation of directors to tackle the genre. Return is zombie comedy at its origin and its best; a must see in glorious 35mm!
