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 barrels full of 2-4-5 Trioxin are back and so are Thom Mathews and James Karen, but that's it.  The story about a little kid finding a missing barrel in a sewage drain and then accidentally causing another outbreak is lame, the zombies themselves don't look all that great, the script is weak and worst of all...it's a comedy!!  An unfunny comedy at that.  The zombies are constantly doing stupid shit (falling in a grave, stepping on another zombies hand, dancing, talking about Harry Truman) and none of it is even remotely funny.  By the time the ending mercifully shows up you're ready to roundhouse this disc right into the trashcan.

Stupid comedy bits, Thom Mathews and James Karen wasted with unfunny lines, zero nudity, zero gore.  About the only highlights were the familiar faces, the 80's rock soundtrack and maybe even a Bub sighting
