Return of the Living Dead 4: Necropolis [DVD] [2005]

Release Date:04/18/2006
First came 1985's Return of the Living Dead, the critically-acclaimed Romero follow-up helmed by Alien and Dark Star-guru Dan O'Bannon. Then came successive sequels, released in 1988 and 1993. The latest installment in the series, Return of the Living Dead 4: Necropolis, debuted on The Sci-Fi Channel and stars screen vet Peter Coyote (E.T., Timerider). When the parents of young Cody (Cory C. Hardrict) suddenly die in a car wreck, he and his siblings are shipped off to stay with Uncle Charlie Griffin (Coyote), a scientist using the trioxin chemical substance (from the previous films) to raise a group of invincible, biogenetic soldiers. Cody doesn't ask questions about his uncle's top-secret project -- that is, until one of Cody's close friends is injured in an automobile accident. When the friend's body is shipped off to Charlie's facility, Cody and his pals break into the lab -- and accidentally set free hordes of zombies. Gorehounds will be awestruck, as stomachs are ripped in half, blood and guts fly through the air, and flesh is devoured. The film also stars John Keefe as Julian Garrison and Jana Kramer as Katie Williams.

    Return of the Living Dead 4: Necropolis
    A pair of orphaned teens experience an unexpected reunion with their parents in this fourth installment of the long-running Return of the Living Dead franchise. After a traffic accident kills his folks, high-school senior Julian (John Keefe) leads a more or less typical suburban life. Sure, he's a little depressed, and sure, his brother, Jake (Alexandru Geoana), has a problem with matches. But otherwise everything is business as usual. All of that changes when their friend Zeke (Elvin Dandel) is injured in a dirt-bike accident and rushed to the hospital. Although the authorities claim Zeke is dead, he's actually carted off to a secret laboratory by the evil Hybratech corporation, whose scientists plan to experiment on him with a chemical that can reanimate the dead. Unfortunately for Julian and Jake, their uncle Charles (Peter Coyote) is one of the bad guys -- and he's not above using members of his own family as test subjects. With a group of friends in tow, the boys must infiltrate Hybratech's lab, find Zeke, and fend off a horde of angry zombies. Filmed back to back in Romania and Ukraine with Return of the Living Dead 5: Rave to the Grave, Return of the Living Dead 4: Necropolis premiered on the SciFi Channel cable network before receiving a DVD release. Both films were directed by Ellory Elkayem, who previously helmed Eight Legged Freaks. ~ Brian J. Dillard, Rovi
