Plot: Curious kids unearth the barrels that helped revive the dead of the first film, which proves the second time's an undead charm. Runtime: 89 mins Release Date: 15 Jan 1988
I enjopyed this tremendously. It was one of the first zombie films I saw, and first of the Return series. A mix of horror and comedy can so easily be done wrong so this time out, Director Weiderhorn decided to go all out on pure entertainment-almost a light-hearted comedy on the undead. Some jokes fall flat severed hand giving the finger, probably lifted from Evil Dead 2 but the fun of the film will draw most in and bring back nostalgic memories of the 1980s. The opening credits have recieved a lot of crap as they don't set up the plot the same way the first Return's did. But I like <more>
the song Julian Cope's Spacehopper and it really caught my attention and got me in a silly mood. The song is probably this film's equivilant of the first's PartyTime sequence.Some might call it lame, but they're just being too cynical. This is a good sequel in most respects and a lot of fun to watch. Like the first, it's dated in many respects but it's still a load of fun.
Actually, **** out of four.This one has it all. A good cast with funny performances from 1980s horror film recognizables like James Karen Part I, Invaders from Mars , Thom Mathews Part I, F-13 Part VI , and Suzanne Snyder Killer Klowns, Night of Creeps . Philip Bruns Silent Night Bloody Night , as Doc Mandel, is fun as well. Snyder is her usual crazy, goofy self while Karen and Mathews are like some Laurel and Hardy ish team which helps the film out dearly, working well together once again. Also, Dana Ashbrook and Michael Kenworthy both appeared in other horror films in 1988, Waxwork and <more>
The Blob, respectively.The story is pretty basic and that's fine cuz we don't need twist endings or extensive plot devices here, just some good laughs, good direction by Ken Wiederhorn Shock Waves and well designed zombies by Kenny Myers. Memorable zombies for that matter.As for the DVD cut, if you know how to switch back and forth b/w the french language track whenever there's no dialogue for a while, do it cuz it contains the original J. Peter Robinson score, which is excellent and one of the main reasons why this movie has a fan base to begin with. Maybe WB will issue out a version that has the original on the English language track! Ironically, even Wiederhorn's commentary track mentions that the new score for the DVD is sub-par. Frankly, it sucks compared to the original. Despite this cut, I still have high regard for this film and will be on the lookout for a better version one day we can all hope, right? It's interesting to note that Robinson and D.P. Robert Elswit have gone on to major Hollywood productions and it's easy to see why judging by their work here.This is a surprise sleeper from 1988, probably the best year out of the 1980s for horror films Killer Klowns, The Blob, ROTLD II, Halloween 4, F-13 Part VII, The Brain, Pumpkinhead, Phantasm II, Nightmare 4, Child's Play, just to name a few . With horror films like these, I'm glad I was 7 yrs. old in 1988, lol!! This one is miles ahead of the original only cuz the tone seems darker and much more serious in the original, even though it's essentially a spoof. This one is just that- a horror comedy!! almost in league with Shaun of the Dead for horror comedy stature . Some light comedy, some light, yet entertaining horror.Highly recommended! * * * *
One of the Best Zombie Films Ever! (by fibreoptic)
This movie is simply awesome! Now this is the way zombie movies should be made. It has action, tension and a bit of horror. Romero's dead movies are good but can get a bit boring at times but Return Of The Living Dead Part Two has thrills throughout and yes it's a comedy nearing dangerously close to the border line of spoof the Michael Jackson thriller zombie scene . The make-up is fantastic especially the zombie that comes out of the water tunnel same zombie from the basement in the first one? . This is more of a remake than a sequel, it improves on the first one and i'm glad <more>
to see in this one the zombies don't sprint! And does Joey's girlfriend get some kind of sexual pleasure from letting him eat her brains? Bizarre! Shame that Part 3 took away the comedy because that one really sucked! C'mon, let's have a Part 4 like this one...more of the same pleeeeeeeease!!! 10/10
I Loved This Sequel !, It Was Hilarious And Extremely Entertaining! (by callanvass)
I loved this sequel!, it was hilarious and extremely entertaining, and it had a great mix of humor and scares!. I loved the original, however i may have enjoyed this one a little more, as i was laughing throughout the whole movie, plus i really liked all the characters!. The opening is truly great, and it was awesome to see Thom Matthews and James Karen returning, plus the kids actually did a decent job!. The zombies were hilarious looking, however there were some pretty funny scenes involving them, stopping to look at a fitness instructor, answering the phone, and lots of others, plus <more>
Phillip Bruns is hilarious as the Doc. Sure it may be a watered down version of the original, however for some reason i enjoyed it a tiny bit more then the original, and the finale was great, plus i actually found all the characters to be likable!. I loved this sequel!, it was hilarious and extremely entertaining, and i say it's a must see!. The Direction is great!.Ken Wiederhorn does a great job here, with, excellent camera work, great angles adding some creepy atmosphere sometimes , and keeping the film at a very fast pace!. There is some gore. We get, Gory corpses,Severed head,severed limbs,gunshot wounds,body split in half,brain smacking,fist through the face with goo coming out,impaling,and brains on the ground, Decent. The Acting is a lot of fun!. Michael Kenworthy actually does good job as the Kid, and didn't get on my nerves once good job!. Thom Mathews gives another memorable performance, here, and he cracked me up! Matthews rules! same performance as the 1st but it's more then welcome!. James Karen is extremely hilarious here, and had me laughing throughout the film, and he had great chemistry with Thom Matthews!. Suzanne Snyder was hot and did her job well!. Marsha Dietlein is great as the sister,she was damn hot and i really liked her, she also had good chemistry with Dana Ashbrook!. Dana Ashbrook is good here i liked him. Thor Van Lingen does a good job as the trouble maker Billy and was quite funny actually. Phillip Bruns is great as the Doc!. Rest of the cast are fine. Overall a must see!. **** out of 5
This is one of my favorite zombie movies of all time. I saw it for the first time as a kid so I have some sentimental childhood memories attached to it. It has everything I want from a zombie movie: The zombies are rotted, buried corpses from a graveyard, just like I think zombies should be like, the humor is great Like the zombie getting his hand stepped on and then on the head and when Doc is talking in the walkie-talkie and a zombie replies. Great stuff and the dialog has plenty of funny lines. One of my favorites has to be when Joey is saying "It's like all this happened before, <more>
like we been her before, you, me.. Them!" I think this sequel is very loyal to the original film, it brought back a lot of the things that made part 1 great. Like the rock music, the graveyard sequences, the comedy elements and of course the brain-eating. Unlike the other sequels that had barley any of this stuff. The effects are great to, the make up on the zombies are great and the part were one of them is blown in half with a shotgun is a very memorable and funny scene. If like old-school zombies and want a movie with a 80's/retro feeling then watch this one.
I Don't Care If They're Dead,I'll Kill Them Aways (by TEAQUIEMORO)
Return of the living Dead Part two was a pure funny and horror movie that I seen from a zombie movie.The characters were the one who made this film a comedy movie,without them this would be nothing but a piece of s**t.It may have gotten us dead but since they had great funny people for their role,it became a sensational movie for a zombie sequel.The two parts I really loved from the movie was a head Ed got and I quote"Get that damn screwdriver off of my head."And the hand seen that they tossed them got the Doc,s balls and then tossed it out the widow and gave them the middle <more>
finger.Those two parts that really made me laugh got me to see this movie to see those parts again to cheer me up.And the plot were the kid is always right make me see the movies because when they see it for themselves then they were wrong which is a bit funny.This classical movie will live on and on.
'80s horror is the greatest thing ever (by Casey_Moriarty)
I don't know what it is that makes the horror films of the 1980s so much fun. Maybe it's the fact that the sophistication of special effects in films probably peaked somewhere around here, before CGI came along in the 90s and took all the fun out of them. Maybe it's the fact that a little humor was necessary after all the brutal and nihilistic horror films of the '70s. Or maybe it's the over-the-top quality that pervaded everything produced in this decade. I don't know. But this movie is a blast. It reminds me more of a Warner Brothers cartoon than a George <more>
Romero-style zombie film; because it's a slapstick movie but unlike in other films of this kind from this time period, the humor doesn't come from extreme gross-out moments. It comes from the attention to details such as a zombie needing to put its glasses on when it rises from the grave; or from a zombie walking around with a jar of brains like it's a glass of beer. It comes from the pause between asking a zombie who the president is and his gruff, "Harry Truman?" I loved it. If you have any sense of giddiness when you are channel surfing and come across one of the '80s beloved horror comedies, you will too.
Amazingly they manage to almost match the first in quality! (by Sic Coyote)
A brilliantly funny and fun spoof of Night of the Living Dead, just as the first one was but this is also sidestepping over into looking a bit more like the eighties brand of horror movie with some eighties in-jokes which are so well timed even though they might have been groan inducing if anywhere else are really funny because of where they are placed. The plot isn't a whole lot different than the first with the zombie running around after peoples brains but now it seems they may have found how to kill the zombies but I won't spoil it. All in all a good sequel to a great film with <more>
just about as many laughs and it helps to have a seemingly quite larger budget to work with as well as advances in effects. Great fun viewing, much recommended to anyone who likes horror. 8/10 Not quite as original as the original but since that there was less to be original about within the genre.
I consider this as the fifth installment of Romero's zombie series since I consider ROTLD as the 4th Don't flame me for this comment ok. !!!SOME SPOILERS!!! 3 kids open one of the canisters full of toxic waste, causing it to spread all over a cemetary.The dead rise up and trap a band of survivors in a suburban neighborhood. Good story, effects, humor, and music. **** out of *****.
