"Brains!" John Russo worked with George A. Romero on the notorious 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead. Unfortunately afterwards the two argued on how to continue the zombie concept and parted ways. Interestingly enough Russo had the rights to the name Living Dead and so Romero had to call his follow-up zombie film simply Dawn of the Dead. Furthering the social commentary and the graphic gore Romero's sequel is constantly held up as one of the best Horror films ever made. Russo used the Living Dead title to produce this more humorous youthful film The Return of the Living Dead. Here the zombies can speak, crave brains (this was the film where the murmured Brains! claim first made its appearance) and are indestructible. Few of these concepts have lived on and none are used in this second golden era of zombie films we're currently living in. The film has its moments but ultimately I greatly prefer films similar to Romero's vision than this goofy schlocky interpretation.
