80's Punk Nostalgia Cinema!

The end of this month begins the Egyptian's 6th Annual Festival of Fantasy, Horror & Science Fiction. Number One Must-See:

20th Anniversary Cast & Crew Reunion:
RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD, 1985, Columbia, 90 min. "They’re Back … They’re Hungry … And They’re NOT Vegetarian!!" Director/writer Dan O’Bannon’s gory, gleeful, punk-rock classic is the godfather to such revisionist zombie flicks as the recent SHAUN OF THE DEAD. RETURN is an unofficial "sequel" to NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, where leaking gas canisters at a medical supply warehouse inadvertently rain down on the nearby cemetery and mortuary. Much skull-splitting, brain-eating hilarity ensues … along with punked-out Linnea Quigley’s unforgettable erotic cemetery dance! Discussion following with cast and crew including: director & screenwriter Dan O'Bannon, actors James Karen, Don Calfa, Beverly Randolph, John Philbin, Miguel Nunez Jr. and Brian Peck, and art director William Stout.

No mention of Quigley making an appearance, but one can hold out hope. At any rate, I will be there. Nothing else I'm that interested in playing. Well, I might check out the Spaghetti Western double feature on August 21. But, also...
