The Return Of The Living Dead Movie Summary

The date: June 3, 1984
The time: 5:30 P.M.
The place: Uneeda Medical Supply in Louisville, Kentucky
The event: Zombies

Freddy is a new employee at Uneeda Medical Supply, Frank, the foreman shows him the cadavers and other no longer living things in the warehouse.   He even shows them a secret military drum down in the basement.  Frank kicks the drum to show how secure it is, but like anything made by the government, this drum is unstable and releases some sort of gas into the warehouse and on Frank and Freddie.

We learn that the army has been searching for this container for 25 years and has no idea where it is.

They start hearing noises coming from the cadaver locker and soon realize that the dead dude ain’t dead no more.  They decapitate the reanimated body, but that still doesn’t kill it, so they take it to the cemetery across the street to the crematorium – brilliant.
