Dan O'Bannon (Aliens writer) directs his own version of the Night Of The Living Dead.
When a bumbling pair of employees at a medical supply warehouse accidentally release a deadly gas into the air, the vapors cause the dead to once again arise from their watery graves and go on a cannibalistic rampage through Louisville, Kentucky. Here, the re-animated hu-mons seek out seeking their most favorite of foods, KFC: Kentucky Fried Chippies.
The steady and nuanced direction by Dan O'Bannon, writer of "Alien", run through out this brilliant installment of Romero's zombie genre that revolves around counter-culture outcasts (punkers, new wavers and beady eyed morticians), maximum effects and then: even endowing some of the zombies with a limited power of speech (Send...more...paramedics...SNARF!). Dark humor, excellent undead effects, prosthetic make-up and much better casting make this 80's update a classic in it's own right.
