Freddy is a street punk trying to turn his life around, with help of his girlfriend Tina. He has a new job at the Uneeda Medical Supplies warehouse, and on a guided tour from second in command Frank, he is shown some military containers that were delivered by mistake fifteen years earlier and have sat in the basement since. Upon closer inspection Frank shows Freddy the containers hold corpses that were infected by a chemical. Unfortunately for the pair one springs a leak, spraying 2-4-5 Trioxin everywhere…
ROTLD immediately nods to Night Of The Living Dead and then sets on its own eighties gore-filled ride . Written and directed by Dan O’Bannon (Alien, Dark Star), it puts the punks alongside the establishment to fight off an army of the undead. Wonderful effects, fantastically OTT acting, quotable lines at every turn and an amazing soundtrack mean that sometime around Halloween grab a few beers, invite your friends and close the curtains to the rain outside. And if things get out of hand you can always call the emergency services and request they “Send more Paramedics” .
