Re-Animator which came out the same year and is equally fun when it comes to 80's zombie cult flicks.
Night Of The Living Dead involves a bunch of young punk rockers who barricade themselves inside a mortuary while fighting off droves of brain-eating zombies. Yep, in this one the zombies are very picky eaters and are not content on eating human flesh. It is strictly a human brains diet and in one mind-numbing scene a naked female zombie who is missing the bottom half of her body explains why they eat brains. Return Of The Living Dead is more of a comedy then anything you can take seriously and they are not the slow staggering George A. Romero type of zombies. So if zombies that run fast and speak is against your zombie religion or something, you should probably stay away from this one all together. However if you want to see scream queen Linnea Quigley get naked and dance on a tombstone before having her brains munched on by a bunch of rotten zombies, then this one might be for you.
