John Russo and George A. Romero had a dispute over how to handle sequels to their 1968 film, Night of the Living Dead. The two reached a settlement wherein Romero's sequels would be referred to as the Dead movies, and Russo's sequels would bear the suffix Living Dead. Thus, each man was able to do what he pleased with the series........
The zombies differ in The Return of the Living Dead films:
- They are as fast, strong, and intelligent as they were in their previous life.
- Instead of hunting humans for their flesh, they hunt for the humans' brains, stating that only the taste of the endorphins contained inside human brains can ease their suffering.
- Injuries to their brains do not have any effect and the only way to fully destroy them is to cremate their bodies, although the ensuing smoke also spreads the contagious gas.
Enter Tarman, probably one of the coolest looking zombies ever. In this scene his hunger for brains is finally fulfilled.....
