In 1985, the now classic Return of the Living Dead was released and it would serve as the first horror film that actually scared the shit out of me. Yes, I had seen The Omen, The Exorcist, and even Faces of Death, but for some reason, this campy (almost comedic) zombie flick struck a certain level of fear in me, mainly because I lived down the street from a cemetery. Once the movie hit the HBO circuit, and I began watching it on a regular basis, and as I did, the fear subsided and I soon found myself engrossed with the subtle nuances of the cast more so than the fear that the film was trying to project. The film became something of an obsession, and it wasn't long before I had most of the dialog memorized and could recite lines a the drop of a hat. Last night I was strolling the internet looking for a downloadable workprint of Return of the Living Dead when I stumbled upon this documentary on YouTube aptly titled More Brains: A Return to the Living Dead. As a fan of documentaries, this was executed perfectly and left no stone unturned, but as a fan of Return to the Living Dead, it was possibly one of the greatest pieces ever produced! The stars of the film as well as the producers and directors break it down and literally walk you through the movie in a way that makes you feel that you were right there on the set. Simply put, if you're a fan of Return of the Living Dead, then you need to stop reading this and watch this documentary immediately!
Also, if you're a fan of the infamous Trioxin Theme, you'll be happy to know that the metal band Nocturnal Symphony recorded their own version and it sounds awesome:
