Return of the Living Dead Part 2 (1988)

1988 Horror, Comedy

User Score: 57/100


Curious kids unearth the barrels that helped revive the dead of the first film, which proves the second time's an undead charm.

You’d think this one would be just as much fun as the first, but alas, it’s not half as good. This time a cannister containing one of the Trioxin infected undead falls off an army truck and is discovered by neighorhood bullies. Soon it’s open, releasing a slimy looking tar-man zombie (again), and the gas spreads to a nearby cemetary (again). James Karen and Thom Mathews are back in almost identical roles from the first movie, even repeating the same lines at one point and realizing themselves that they’ve been through this before. The gore is good, but the humor and fun of the first one are barely visible throughout this flick. You won’t miss anything if you skip straight to Part 3.
