RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD

“Return of the Living Dead” is one of the movies that my teenage self considered awesome that has withstood the test of time. Counter to the movie’s oppressive feeling of dread is a ghoulish sense of humor. “Send more paramedics” is a perfect example. The zombies are preying upon the living by asking for more help. We, the audience, know what is going to happen to the next ambulance that arrives at the graveyard. It is ghastly, but we laugh because it is also clever and diabolically unfair.

Lesson Learned:
Lysol destroys 99% of the germs that cause the smell of death.
