“Return of the Living Dead Part II” is the sequel to one of the 1980s’ best horror-comedies. It’s basically the same premise — a top-secret government gas leaks causing the dead to awaken with a yen for human brains.
The ensuing action, although not for the squeamish, is both scary and hilarious. “… Dead II” is a campy, funny, off-the-wall and well-crafted exercise in the zombie genre. Rated R.
