Return of the Living Dead 4 and 5 teaser posters online
30th Nov 04
Not exactly the most exciting images in the world, but the official posters for the upcoming Return of the Living Dead sequels (that’s 4 and 5) have turned up online, in advance of their expected release sometime next year. These have been confirmed as the official teasers that were also displayed at the AFM a couple of weeks ago.
The two films are being shot back-to-back with a view to a Kill Bill release of six months apart in 2005. Return of the Living Dead 4: Necropolis stars Peter Coyote as a dodgy scientist called Charles Garrison who uses the radioactive trioxin to turn the dead into vicious killing machines with grafted on weaponry.
Prodcucer Anatoly Fradis:
” I came up with forensically realistic extensions of those zombie looks with the addition of grafted-on weapons and chainsaws for an über-zombie, TERMINATOR-like unstoppable mutant quality, because NECROPOLIS is all about military tests on the undead for warfare use.”
Return of the Living Dead 5: Rave from the Grave feature’s Garrison’s nephew finding two barrels of trioxin and manufacturing it into an Ecstasy-type drug that turns some Halloween partygoers into crazed zombies.
Both films were shot back-to-back in the Ukraine by Eight Legged Freaks director Ellory Elkayem. Part of the shot took place at the site of the Chernobyl nuclear-power disaster. Optic Nerve Studios provided the film’s Special effects.
