Night 19 – Return of the Living Dead 

Hey Tar Heads,

Welcome back….It’s becoming hard to keep count of all the horror movies I have watched over this glorious Halloween month. But there have been a lot! I’m becoming exhausted – ehehehe, just kidding! I love horror movies and I love having you all over for my scary slumber parties!

Of course with this next addition to the list you gotta bring some fresh brains over….BRAAAINNSSS…..Yeah, it’s Return of the Living Dead.

Return of the Living Dead/ Dir. Dan O Bannon / 1985

Where George A. Romero’s zombie films were more on the serious spectrum Dan O’ Bannon’s Return of the Living Dead mixed both horror and comedy into one delicious viewing experience. ROTLD is pure 80s fab trash late night horror indulgence. It makes this list because of one really notable scene. The scene with the ooey-gooey Tar Man! When I first saw this scene when I was a child I had to cover my eyes in horror because the pure viewing of the tar man felt wrong and the way the words BRRAAAINNSS rolls of his tongue still give me the jitters.

If you have to be the tar man for Halloween then please just let me know which parties you are going to so that I don’t have to endure that kind of horror. K, thanks.
