You ever watch a movie you’ve seen dozens of times and all of a sudden you realize something you never have before? That’s what happened to me the other day. I was home sick watching Return of the Living Dead and it occurred to me- that despite all the comedy, this is by far the most bleak of all zombie films. It’s far worse than all others.
