Return of the Living Dead: Part II (1988)

Director: Ken Wiederhorn
Starring: James Karen, Thom Mathews, Michael Kenwood

Kids stumble on an Army bioweapons canister and trigger a zombie outbreak.

I actually decided to watch this because I was expecting some cheesy Italian flick like the Zombi movies. Little did I realize it was it was part of its own little series. Horror comedy can be a tricky subgenre. In this film's case, the horrific elements are too goofy and the comedy falls flat. It's not unwatchable, but it's not particularly worth watching either. However, the goofiness may appeal to some people and the very 80s soundtrack may also have some charm factor (it was certainly a plus for me). I can't recommend it, but if you want a silly zombie movie, it may be right up your alley.
