More Movie Taglines:
- Just when you thought it was safe to be dead.
- If "A Nightmare On Elm Street" made you scream and "Creepshow" split your sides, then... "Return Of The Living Dead Part II" will scare your brain out!
- They're Back, And They're Not Happy!
- Got an appetite for horror? This is your dish.
- Jesse Wilson: That's why you're dead, asswipe. No brains and a big mouth!
Ed: You're right, there's a chill in the air tonight. Fifty-eight years old, can't be too careful in this weather. Joey: [pointing to coffin] Yeah, you'll end up in one of those. Ed: Uh-uh. Not me. You'll never find me in one of these. I'm gonna get me cremated. Joey: You're just afraid that some old creep like you is gonna come along and steal your head. Ed: Watch your tongue, boy, if you like this job! Joey: Like this job?
Doc Mandel: Hey look, it's Harvey!... It wasn't my fault, Harvey, we ran out of type O!
Joey: I feel like we've been here before. You... Me... Them!
- Thom Mathews and 'James Karen (I)' nearly duplicate their roles from Return of the Living Dead as a pair who are sickened by zombie gas. In both films they have the exchange, "Listen kid, if you like this job..." "Like this job? Like this job!"
The music score on the DVD release is almost completely different to the original theater, laserdisc and VHS versions. This is widely said to be because of difficulties obtaining the rights to use the original score. However, the original score can be heard on the French audio track.
Writer/Director Ken Wiederhorn was trying to get out of the horror genre at the time Lorimar Productions bought his script. Once the film was released he received nothing but horror-comedy directing opportunities.
The cemetery and storm drain were complete outdoor sets. The mausoleum, hospital, meat packing factory, and interior houses were also purpose-built sets.
The set for Jesse's bedroom is the same one used for Billy's. Posters and furniture were re-arranged to change the look.
