Decent sequel to the comedy/horror original Return of the Living Dead. Still, leans too much on the comedic angle for my tastes - though it still has that campy quality. You kind find many worse zombie movies out there.

This was an ok sequel to the original. Though I liked the first one much better. This time around one of those drums from the first one falls off a truck and these kids open it, once again awakening the living dead. This time around though, it is definitely more of a comedy than a horror. The first one had quite a bit of comedy in it, but in the end I would say it was more horror...this one has very little horror in it. All in all a good sequel to a great film with just about as many laughs and it helps to have a seemingly quite larger budget to work with as well as advances in effects. Not quite as original as the original but since that there was less to be original about within the genre.

Not as good as the original but it does come REALLY close.Return Of The Living Dead had the perfect mix of horror/comedy but part 2 was way more about comedy.I think if part 2 would've been more of a horror flick with a bit of comedy thrown in like part 1 then this movie would've been perfect.That would be my only complaint about part 2.1 of my favorite things was the return of James Karen & Thom Mathews.They were great together in the original & this movie as well.I wish they made more movies together.If they did, I know I would've watched them.Also the Michael Jackson zombie.That was unexpected & I had to rewind it a couple times & watch it over & over again.I'd tell anybody to check this movie out.I enjoyed every single moment of it.If you enjoyed Return Of The Living Dead then you'll …
