Strongly inspired by Romeo and Juliet, this Return of the Living Dead marks the franchise’s will to reinvent itself. None of the actors are making a return and a new formula is introduced. The key element, here, is that one of the two main protagonists, Julie, is slowly becoming a zombie and incidentally letting us in on the curse. We get to live the transformation from a more serious human angle.
The script lives up to the twisted concept’s potential. You haven’t seen sexy until you've met a girl delaying a progressive undead curse through self-mutilation and implicit sadomasochism. Her darkly sexual character design makes her both an interesting protagonist and threat to her boyfriend. As superheroes would, and to make us care for her, she only feeds on criminals and spares the innocent.
You’ll be pleased to find the same make-up and practical effect quality as the previous films, but filmed differently. There is obvious effort in delivering a story with depth, for the first time. The characters are well-written and no longer an easy caricature. Although the film has its share of cheese, the writing is smart, cohesive, and the actors perform wholeheartedly.
