RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD PART II (1988)

The best thing about ROTLD2 is that badass poster art.  Other than that this film is pretty lame.

The story starts out with that one kid from THE BLOB remake finding a missing barrel of 2-4-5 Trioxin in a sewage drain and accidentally releasing the contents.  So now, before you can say "Harry Truman jokes!" zombies are popping up all over the place and doing stupid comedy shit (falling in a grave, stepping on another zombies hand, dancing, talking about Harry Truman)...only about 1% of it is amusing.  By the time the end mercifully shows up you're ready to roundhouse this disc right into the trashcan.

Stupid comedy bits, Thom Mathews and James Karen totally wasted with unfunny lines, zero nudity, zero gore, that one guy from "The X-Files", that one guy from "Twin Peaks", 80's rock soundtrack and maybe even a Bub sighting.
