Chemical rain, yellow man, slimy zombies, yelling, naked red head. This about sums up the movie. Pretty fantastic effects for the mid 80’s, and I liked the skeletal look of the zombies. The story behind the creation of the living dead wasn’t bad either. However, by the end, I just wanted them to get to the solution already, and then when it happened with the flashbacks, my eye rolling was unstoppable. It is written over and over that this is supposed to be a horror- comedy, but it seemed like a regular old eighties movie to me with no laugh-out-loud lines.
