If you're going to force a sequel on us, you could at least get creative rather than just cribbing from Dan O'Bannon's original script.

Antagony & Ecstasy

It seems to be doing so many of the same things that made the first one great. It fails, in that it does them all poorly.

The only saving grace in a totally misguided effort is the performance of character actor Bruns who is quite funny as the slightly off-the-wall doctor.

One of short series that gave James Karen his place in horror movie history.

Not even a nuclear explosion, it seems, can prevent a sequel to a tongue-in-cheek zombie pic.

Given the abundance of films like this, Return 2 is hardly a classic, but it's far better than it has any right to be.

The movie's high points are its makeup and special effects. The movie's low points are almost everything else.

The first film was an amusing, winking zombiefest that glorified its own cheekiness. The sequel tries to do bigger and better and thus is less and worse.

An occasional clever joke but in general a degradation of this branch of the series.
