Return of the Living Dead: Rave to the Grave - Donation Bonus

Much like the Tarman, the Return of the Living Dead franchise had been cooped up for years but in 2005 sudios released not one but two sequels! Last week Now Playing supporters heard our review of the film Necropolis, now Jakob, Stuart, and Arnie are back to Rave to the Grave. When the trippy drug Z starts to turn users into the undead only a pair of Russian mobsters stands between the zombies and global disaster. Is this film a good party time or should it have remained interred? Donate and support Now Playing to find out!

Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis - Donation Bonus

It's hard to kill a zombie in Return of the Living Dead. Shoot them, burn them, they keep coming back for more brains. But after 1993 it seemed the zombies had finally been killed for good by the most harrowing of enemies--intellectual property rights issues. Leave it to Hollywood to never leave money on the table, though, as the zombie resurgence of the early 21st century with 28 Days Later and Dawn of the Dead enabled Return of the Living Dead to crawl from the grave again with not one but two low-budget, direct-to-SyFy Channel sequels. This week on Now Playing's bonus donation series Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob watch the first of these films: Return of the Living Dead--Necropolis. Is watching this film worse than eating cooked, zombified rat? If you donate to support Now Playing you can listen and find out!

Return of the Living Dead 3 - Donation Bonus

For Return of the Living Dead 3 studio Trimark Pictures brought in Brian Yuzna, a horror producer and director best known for the ground-breaking Re-Animator films. Yuzna worked with writer John Penney to create a zombie love story. Starring future O.C. actress Melinda Clarke as Julie, a goth girl with a new found taste for brains, Return of the Living Dead 3 had much different in tone than the previous two films. Is this change for the better? Donate to Now Playing and you can listen and find out!

Return of the Living Dead Part II - Donation Bonus

Punk rock, humor, and zombies proved a successful mix in Return of the Living Dead so a sequel was inevitable. Some of the cast returned, including actors who's characters died in the first one, but writer/director Dan O'Bannon was absent from the sequel. With a new tale of Trioxin fueled undead and an even stronger emphasis on the jokes, is Return of the Living Dead II a proper thriller? Donate to support Now Playing and find out!

The Return of the Living Dead - Donation Bonus

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!
