The Return of the Living Dead

 (1985)

The Return of the Living Dead Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

On his first day on the job at an army surplus store, poor Freddy unwittingly releases nerve gas from a secret U.S. military canister, unleashing an unbelievable terror. The gas re-animates a corps of corpses, who arise from their graves with a ravenous hunger for human brains! And luckily for those carnivorous cadavers, there is a group of partying teens nearby, just waiting to be eaten!

For more about The Return of the Living Dead and the The Return of the Living Dead Blu-ray release, see the The Return of the Living Dead Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

The Return of the Living Dead Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

It's hard to believe that the last time I personally saw this film it was on a VHS copy from Blockbuster. What a difference we have here! MGM unleashes Return of the Living Dead with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that'll likely satisfy the film's fans, even if it has a few PQ problems. Return, now 25 years old, was a fairly low budget picture—you can't expect pristine clarity—but I hesitate to say that this is the best the film will ever look. Some darker scenes feature a murky mixture of chunky grain and compression noise; others, hoping to avoid a similar fate, look as though they've been lightly smoothed with DNR. The key word in that sentence, though, is lightly. There's nothing here that even comes close to the Predator travesty we saw in June, and most of the film looks appropriately filmic and natural, if a little soft. Sharpness is definitely not this transfer's strongest suite. There are a few tightly defined close-ups that really reveal the intricacies of the zombie makeup, but truly fine detail is absent from much of the film. Color fares better, with a muted palette that occasionally pops with bright police lights, vivid '80s clothing, and, of course, cherry red arterial blood sprays. Black levels are somewhat inconsistent, though, sometimes deep and elsewhere a soupy gray. I have a feeling the film could definitely look better, but I'm satisfied for now.


The Return of the Living Dead Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Return of the Living Dead's original mono soundtrack is enhanced here by way of a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround mix. (A Dolby Digital 2.0 mono track is also available.) Honestly, not much has been expanded—this is still a fairly front-heavy presentation. The one thing you will notice, though, is the addition of rain falling in the rears for most of the outdoor scenes—obviously, the ones where it's raining. It's nothing drastic, but I suppose it adds to the creepy vibe. Although it's rare, you'll also occasionally hear a random effect in the surround channels. These usually have a distinct "patched in" quality—along with the effect, you'll notice a slight spike in white noise from whichever speaker is being used. The film is known for it's deathrock/punk soundtrack—with songs from The Damned, The Cramps, 45 Grave, and SSQ—and the music sounds great, loud and driving with plenty of low end. Dialogue throughout is easy to understand, and the disc includes several subtitle options—including two sets of pointless zombie subs. More on that below.
