The Return of the Living Dead

The Return of the Living Dead (1985)

10 corrected entries

Corrected entry: During the beginning of the film, Frank is giving Freddie a tour of the warehouse. Frank explains that Freddie was in for a rare treat because they had a supply of split dogs. The warehouse was equipped with a freezer room where the dogs should have been kept. The dogs would have rotted and decayed on the shelf at room temperature where they were stored.

Correction: The dogs were displays for veterinary schools, so they would have been embalmed.

Corrected entry: When Frank and Freddy wake up to find the lid of the canister open Frank thinks the body must have melted when it hit the air. The question they should be asking is who opened the lid?

Correction: They opened the lid and kept it open when they were knocked out.

Corrected entry: When Trash is being attacked by zombies, she is wearing a jacket. However when she comes out of the puddle as a zombie, she is once again fully nude.

SAZOO1975

Correction: It is very plausible that Trash's jacket was torn off as she was being attacked.

Corrected entry: In the scene when the skeleton zombie first rises out of the grave, you can see he's just a skeleton and nothing else except eyes. If the skeleton in the grave can reanimate, then why didn't the skeletons in the supply warehouse reanimate?

Correction: The skeletons in the warehouse had been cleaned, stripped, and put back together with pins, unlike the untouched bones in the grave.

Jason Hoffman

Corrected entry: After Trash is killed, she is walking up the street towards the homeless guy with the shopping cart. Notice that she is not wearing her "zombie FX" until they show her up close biting into the homeless guy.

Correction: Yes, she is wearing the zombie fx make-up when walking down the street, it just looks different because she does not have her mouth open yet. Just look at her eyebrows and neck.

Corrected entry: The Tar Man, who shows up throughout the movie, goes through 3 distinctly different voices, one for each scene: one is low and gurgly, one is high-pitched, and one is extremely low. This same zombie also takes a few breaths when he tries to pull the door of the cabinet Tina is hiding in, and proceeds to stop breathing for the rest of the movie.

Correction: This is simply because he is a rotting corpse that has trouble maintaining his voice, his vocal chords and lungs are in the process of decomposing. Also, him breathing to assist in his pulling of the door is not a mistake, as we cannot tell he is not breathing througout the rest of the film. He very well could be, and most likely is, otherwise, he couldn't talk.

Corrected entry: After Frank and Freddie open the tank, Tarman comes to life, gets out of the tank, and hangs out in the basement. Some time later after Tina arrives, he finally shows himself. Where and why was he hiding while Frank and Freddie were out cold (and unbeknownst to them already dead)?

Correction: There's no way to be certain, but he was probably in the process of reanimation, and they were so scared/sick they just didn't notice him.

Jason Hoffman

Corrected entry: The door to the freezer, where the first zombie is trapped, says "DO NOT OPEN THIS DOOR".

Correction: Pointing out something obvious to anyone watching the movie is NOT trivia.

Jason Hoffman

Corrected entry: Of the main characters that are "eaten" by the zombies, Suicide, Trash, and Scuz, only Trash comes back as a zombie.

Correction: True but of those three only Trash is left submerged in a toxic rain puddle, also she got a much bigger dose of trioxin to start with, seeing how she wasn't wearing anything.

Corrected entry: When Frank is talking to Freddy, he says that the movie Night of the Living Dead was based on something that really happened in 1969. But Night of the Living Dead was made in 1968.

Correction: Character mistake, not movie mistake.

Mistakes

When Tina runs up the stairs and then falls through, she lands on a blanket but when she stands up, the blanket is gone.

Trivia

Not a mistake, just a case of very bad luck that not many realize: In an attempt to escape the infamous "Tar man" zombie, Tina runs up the stairs. She ends up falling through the bad stair, mentioned earlier in the picture. Now think back to the beginning, after Freddy and Frank breathe the gas from the tank. Frank runs over and pukes under the stairs. So, not only is Tina being pursued by a brain hungry zombie, she also takes a high fall, and lands in cold puke.
