Return of the Living Dead 3

In Return of the Living Dead and Return of the Living Dead Part II, the gas known as 2-4-5 Trioxin turned humans into zombies and made the dead rise from their graves hungry for fresh brains. In the third entry, Col. Reynolds (Kent McCord) and a group of scientists are conducting experiments on making the dead weapons for war. His son Curt (J. Trevor Edmund, Pumpkinhead 2: Blood Wings) and girlfriend Julie (Melinda Clarke, Killer Tongue) use his Dad's security pass to get into the facility and watch one of the secret experiments. After things go awry, Curt and his Father get into an argument and Curt takes off with Julie on his motorcycle.(read more...)

Return of the Living Dead Part 2 poster

Those grotesque brain eating zombies are back from the dead… again. This time the barrels that contain the dead and toxic gas known as 2-4-5 Trioxin drop off of a transport van and land close to a nearby cemetery located near a new housing development. Two bully kids from the neighborhood unleash the toxic gas and it pours across the cemetery, resurrecting the dead and turning them into brain-hungry ghouls. For Jesse (Michael Kenworthy, The Blob '88), his sister Lucy (Marsha Dietlein, Rumpelstiltsken), Tom the cable installer (Dana Ashbrook, Waxwork) and Doc Mandel (Philip Burns) it becomes a race to get out of the town, with brains intact!(read more...)

It is Freddy's (Thom Mathews, Friday the 13th 6: Jason Lives) first day on the job at the Uneeda medical supply warehouse in Louisville Kentucky. While down in the underground room with Uncle Frank (James Karen, Muholland Drive), they unintentionally set free a nerve gas from these military canisters accidentally shipped to the warehouse years ago. Little do they know that this gas called The 2-4-5 Trioxin has the influence to revive the dead, turning them into swift running, brain famished ghouls. To the benefit of the deadly gas, next door to the supply warehouse is a cemetery. And within the graveyard is a partying group of punk rockers and preps, along with Freddy's non-cursing, goody two-shoes girlfriend Tina.(read more...)
