The Return of the Living Dead *Special 25th Anniversary Screening*
Dir: Dan O'Bannon
91 min / USA / 1985
Brains! Brains Brains! Call More Paramedics! And don't miss this special 25th anniversary screening of the zombie comedy that started it all, projected on the big screen in glorious 35mm!
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the cemetery, those brain-eating zombies are back and hungry for more tasty mortals. A fiendish mix of outrageous humor and heart-stopping terror, The Return of the Living Dead is a veritable smorgasbord of fun filled with skin-crawling jolts, eye-popping visuals and relentless surprise! On his first day on the job at an army surplus store, poor Freddy unwittingly releases nerve gas from a secret U.S. military canister, unleashing an unbelievable terror. The gas re-animates a corps of corpses, who arise from their graves with a ravenous hunger for human brains! And luckily for those carnivorous cadavers, there is a group of partying teens nearby, just waiting to be eaten!
Introduced by cult film writer, and programming director of Revelation Perth International Film Festival, Jack Sargeant.
