Hey tightwads, it’s time for another Tightwad Terror Tuesday. Here’s this week’s batch of free movies to keep you warm through these cold winter months.
The Return of the Living Dead
Is it a sequel? A Reboot? An unrelated movie that rides the “Living Dead” coattails? The Return of the Living Dead is kind of all three. This 1985 classic is about a couple of mortuary attendants who accidentally release a gas that seeps into the ground of the cemetery next door, causing corpses to rise as zombies. This was the original fast-moving zombie movie, made a good fifteen years before 28 Days Later and the Dawn of the Dead remake. No George Romero here, but you’re in good hands with director Dan O’Bannon. The cast is equally impressive, including Clu Gulager, Linnea Quigley, Thom Mathews, John Philbin, Brian Peck, Beverly Randolph, and the late Don Calfa. It’s also got one of the most rocking soundtracks of the eighties (if not ever). If you haven’t seen The Return of the Living Dead, you really should. Go see it here at TubiTV.
