"It makes the pain of being dead stop..."
Also the Tarman is boss.
Its really weird how this one little punk rock zombie movie managed to work its way into mainstream pop culture. Zombies ate flesh up until RotLD and almost ever zombie movie, comic, novel whatever that came after it. But for some weird reason EVERYONE knows "zombies eat brains". Ask someone to do an impression of a zombie, they're more than likely going to shamble around moaning "Brraaaiiinns," but outside of the Return of the Living Dead you'll almost never see zombies doing that in zombie flicks. Weird, eh? And everyone goes on and on about how 28 days later and the Dawn of the Dead remake introduced "running zombies" but Return did it first in 1985.
Oh and steer clear of the sequels they're pretty crummy. Part two is mostly watchable, and three is pretty good, but neither are as amazing as the first, but anything after part three ... HOO-Boy!
