"They're Back From The Grave and Ready To Party!"

After two employees of the medical supply company Uneeda accidentally open a military canister of toxic gas, the dead come back to life and chaos ensues. The gas brings all the corpses in the building back to life, to include a cadaver destined for medical study. The pair decides the only way to hide the evidence of their mistake, is to dismember and burn the cadaver at a nearby morgue.

The smoke from the burned cadaver filters into the air causes even more dead to return from the grave. As the surrounding area becomes a battleground between zombies and the living, the military prepares to take end-game action to contain the problem.

The movie focuses on the two employees, a group of rebellious punks, and a hapless mortician. Return of the Living Dead introduces and explains the zombies’ need to consume brains as well as other concepts that were new for the era and the sub-genre, such as speaking zombies and that sometimes destroying the brain isn’t enough.
