Synopsis

“A fresh and immensely entertaining take on the zombie genre.” – Film Threat

A fiendish mix of outrageous humor and heart-stopping terror, The Return of the Living Dead is “a veritable smorgasbord of fun” (L.A. Herald Examiner)!

On his first day on the job at an army surplus store, poor Freddy (Thom Mathews) unwittingly releases nerve gas from a secret U.S. military canister, unleashing an unbelievable terror. The gas re-animates an army of corpses, who arise from their graves with a ravenous hunger… for human brains! And luckily for those carnivorous cadavers, there is a group of partying teens nearby, just waiting to be eaten!

About Ray Marek III 273 Articles
Who am I? I am a widower now, father of two amazing children. I co-created the website, Nightfall Unlimited with a good friend of mine. Nightfall Unlimited was a great learning experience for me and I learned a lot from so many great people. I had the chance to dip my toes into blogging and even social networking. Now, we are here, the Horror Syndicate is nearly a year old and we are having fun! There is so much more about me. I hate this phrase, but I am an aspiring comic book writer. Problems with finding artists and getting published have held me back. Writing comics has been a dream for, well as long as I can remember. Now I am writing with a great team, Apogee Comics and hopefully we will make some noise in the same way Image comics did in the 1990s. One day, Rage of Rayzor and the Horror Syndicate will lead me to my dream. Support me, by sharing this site, liking and sharing posts, even following me on twitter would help @Rayzor_33. But you want to know about the horror…right? I have been watching horror films since I was 6 years old. The story, one Saturday night, my mom and I were watching movies and she fell asleep on the couch. We had the channel set on HBO and the movie we were watching ended and the next one, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. This was some time in 1986. I watched then entire film, I was sitting on the edge of my seat. When my mom woke, she asked me what just ended and I told her, “Freddy”. That was all I talked about for weeks and finally she broke down and rented more horror films for me. She rented, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre part 2, Re-Animator, Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives and Halloween II. I watched all and fell in love with horror films forever. When my little brother was 2, I was 10, so were talking 1990. He was introduced to Halloween and I made him believe Haddonfield, IL was a real place. We lived in Illinois at the time and this terrified him. After the intial shock, he grew older and more interested in horror films. When he was 8, we went to the local video store and made our way to the horror section. We started with Alien and worked our way through the alphabet of horror. That day we basically started our course in horror. Since then, I have built a nice horror film collection of my own and started a Facebook Horror Group, The Horror Movie Massacre. I wrote for Nightfall and Rage of Rayzor, realized there is a lot of horror content I wanted to put out. So, I drafted some fellow horror fans to make a site, run by fans, for fans and here we are. 5 Horror Films to Watch Inferno (1980) A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) The Beyond (1981) Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives (1986) Horror of Dracula (1958)
