The two heroes of the movie are names Burt and Ernie, obviously an ironic reference to the popular Sesame Street (1969) characters, right? Wrong. Turns out Dan O'Bannon didn't know he was using the names of the two beloved children's show's puppets (from liner notes in the Collector's Edition DVD). See more »
After Frank and Freddie are gassed my the faulty barrel and wake up, Frank closes the barrel lid before they go upstairs. Later when Burt comes down to get the phone number from the barrel he closes the lid a second time. See more »
Mister, they're out there and there's more of them in that warehouse on the other side of the graveyard.
The medical supply...
Oh Shit! Shit! God damn!
I think things are getting out of hand.
Mister, there's a hundred of those things out there.

The best $10 dollars I ever spent was buying The Return of the Living Dead
This is such a kick ass zombie movie its my favorite I enjoy this movie more
than "Dawn of the Dead" the best thing about this flick is the outstanding
cast I love everyone in this movie they made it all happen with Dan O'Bannon
