78 mins George Romero's Night of the Living Dead was so successful that it had not one but two sequels! Of course there was 1978's Dawn of the Dead, but Night co-writer John Russo wrote his own sequel as well: Return of the Living Dead. First published as a novel in 1977, the story was taken and rewritten, and eventually directed by Dan O'Bannon, best known as the author of Alien. Giving the film a punk rock score and a cast of punk characters, the film combines horror and humor. Does it work? DONATE to Now Playing you get to find out and hear...more...podcasts!
