    Initially I was tempted to give this book 5 stars for the cover alone Wonderfully creepy to say the least Undead is a two story collection the written version of the movie Night of the Living Dead and a seual of sorts The Return of the Living Dead Both are written by John Russo who along with George A Romero wrote the screen play for the movie Night of the Living Dead The Return of the Living Dead is not a product of George Romero it is all John Russo’s creation Since two separate stories are presented in this book they will get two separate reviewsNight of the Living Dead is awesome It’s hard for me to write an objective review because I know the movie by heart and love it so much The novella here follows the movie exactly Although it’s not and never will be a product of fantastic literature it does manage to convey the intense psychological horror and unease expected of a zombie apocalypse In fact the events in written form are slightly powerful than the movie But again I’m biased Another reviewer on here stated that reading this story is like visiting an old friend and I couldn’t agree Loved it The Return of the Living Dead is unfortunately not so awesome There are so many bad horror movie clichés such as axe wielding bad hillbillies’ gone amuck rape old farm communities I could go on and on This is not a written adaptation of the film The Return of the Living Dead In fact it is a different story altogether However it still reads as if it is the written adaptation of a 1980’s slasher flick Had this been a movie the movie would have been fantastically gory and campy or incredibly scary; depending on the whim and skill of the director and of course the talent of the actors But as a written story this is a total fail It has none of the subtle emotional terror presented in Night of the Living Dead Blood and guts are meant to be seen not read aboutFinal verdict HorrorzombieLiving Dead fans should give this a try I can’t help but recommend Night of the Living Dead As far as The Return of the Living Dead horror enthusiasts may be interested in skimming through it Everyone else should probably pass it up

    I'd never read an author who plagiarized himself so much More than half of Return of the Living Dead was lifted word for word from Night of the Living Dead which is funny because Return of the Living Dead is the better story Still it was an interesting curio to read

    Night of the Living Dead ☆☆☆☆½ Ben stood up He had to use his foot against the dead thing's head to gain leverage to pull the jack handle out and the dead skull flopped back with a thud against the living room floor And just the tiniest bit of fluid white and not the color of blood oozed from the wound made by the jack handle in the dead creature's skullThis novelization of the movie has several differences in minor details and background information It maintains all the gore and flesh eating that made the original so intense when it first came out While it's the same story some details like view spoilerBen being bitten toward the end hide spoiler

    I have always loved the Night of the Living dead series and the genre that it helped create Reading this collection took me back to the time I discovered a dog eared copy of Dawn of the dead by Romero on my father's bookshelf I dove right in and finished it in one intense sitting; shaking the whole time The first of the two stories Night is the better IMHO of the two but Return does still stand to give some chills

    Two zombie novellas by a screenwriter who worked on Night of the Living Dead how could I not love this? Read onThe Introduction John Russo could be the Jack Kirby to George A Romero's Stan Lee but his introduction comes off as sour grapes Apparently everything you love about the Living Dead franchise is due to Russo and not Romero but who really knows? Russo could provide interesting insight but he mostly downplays the roles of Romero and O'Bannon telling us that his is the original no holds barred originalNight of the Living Dead I love Night of the Living Dead Unfortunately Russo gives us a relatively straightforward novelization There are some added details like Ben's parental drive but most readers would be better off watching or rewatching the movie What's frustrating here is that there are always some details or aspects of character that don't make it to the big screen but Russo fails to capitalize on the opportunity he has here Avatar Press's comic book series does better work fleshing out the back storiesReturn of the Living Dead Russo points out that this isn't O'Bannon's horror comedy but stark horror And it's best not to compare the two Russo picks up the story ten years after the original Living Dead event essentially one horrible unexplained night uelled by authorities Now in the shadow of the zombies religious sects secretly stake the dead in the forehead while authorities assure the populace that the zombie menace could never rise again And then it doesThis is an interesting premise but it essentially plays out the same way However Russo reiterates that during zombie apocalypse however short the biggest thing you have to fear is other humans Rapists and looters take the forefront making any stark horror come from sexual violence I have no doubt the John Russo played a vital role in Night of the Living Dead I'm also glad that Romero and O'Bannon separately took it from there

    A thrilling uick to read novelisation of the zombie movies I enjoyed Night if the Living Dead than its seuel Worth a read for fans of zombie stories

    This signed limited edition from Cemetery Dance collects Night Of The Living Dead and Return Of The Living DeadMost horror fans are likely familiar with the classic low budget shocker Night Of The Living Dead The novelization sticks very closely to the film so no real surprises I dig the story Return Of The Living Dead however is nothing like the awesome movie of the same title and while it borrows heavily from NOTLD I think it's a pretty decent little seuelI may have given the collection itself only 35 stars but this Cemetery Dance edition is pretty damn sweet just look at that cover art so for this book collector 4 stars it is

    This book is difficult to rate honestly because there are two sides to it but here it goesNight of the Living Dead reads exactly like the movie If you enjoyed the movie then you will enjoy the book for the sheer nostalgic feel to it Return of the Living Dead is written like a rough draft to try and get a screenplay There are holes in the storyline and there isn't enough of anything given to any of the characters There are moments that definitely make you say well why or what or even flipping back a few pages thinking you missed something because of the holes in the plotHowever to give this book a real review I do what I usually do and try to mentally think what was available at the time the book was written These were both written well before things like Resident Evil and The Walking Dead were common knowledge Well before zombies were the flavor of the month These books excel in laying the foundation for what we have nowNight of the Living Dead sets the tone for the undead coming back to life and causing sheer panic and terror amongst the survivors We are obviously desensitized to zombies and the idea of zombies but one could see how terrifying this could be at the time it was writtenReturn of the Living Dead is actually ahead of its time in that it shows the horror that can come from a disaster which are the people taking advantage of the situation The Walking Dead has transformed this idea and has made its money on the drama between the living This book literally set the foundation for such a thing With all of this being said I gave it 4 stars I feel like it is a great nostalgic throwback and a uick easy read I would recommend this to a friend but I would remind them when the books were written They are not perfect or masterpieces to say the least but are uite enjoyable overall

    Night of the Living Dead is a classic Romero is the father of zombies I love his work It's B horror at its best I was excited for this book because Mr Russo co authored the script for the movie Unfortunately this duology of short novels was a total let down I'm not sure how much Russo contributed to the original script Perhaps he is an excellent writer of screenplays He is no however talented novelist The writing was bland I was strictly being told a story not living it between the pages Everything was just so incredibly flat feeling There was no terror no fear And the second story Return of the Living Dead was even worse than the first He literally copy and pasted direct dialogue from the first story Come on not cool Also when writing a seuel perhaps one shouldn't use names similar to those in the first story if they are not related It's a small thing but I found it irritating And shame on the editor of this collection There were misused comas everywhere In one instance several was spelt with an 1 instead of an L Really? Come on Spell check is your friend The mistakes were embarrassingly freuent and obvious

    I'm going to hurry and review this before I go to bed lol XD So this is a bind up of Night of the Living Dead and Return of the Living Dead which are novelizations of the movies Each is separated by ten years and the recently dead have come alive again and are starving for human flesh People must take it into their own hands to eradicate them and hopefully make society whole again or as whole as it can be I liked this book this is my first zombie book and it has been better what I have been reading I liked the concept of the book and the action in the story However I felt like I would have enjoyed the movies than the book I would love to see the films and compare the two and come to a conclusion But yes I liked the story and I hope this will open me to a world of zombie books and hopefully some truly amazing ones
