When two bumbling employees at a medical supply warehouse accidentally release a deadly gas into the air, the vapors cause the dead to rise again as zombies.
Brian Peck, who plays Scuz, also appears as a zombie who's clawing his way out of his grave.
Tian, it was wrong of you to lock me up. I had to hurt myself to get out. But I forgive you darlin' and I know you're here, because I can smell your brains.
Freddy: Go away!
Freddy: I'm comming up tian!
When the movie shifts from the graveyard to the funeral home, it clearly states that the time is 9:20 on the screen. Yet when you look at the clock behind the dead body and Don Calfa (Ernie) the clock clearly shows the time is 10:20.
The following phony disclaimer precedes the movie: "The events portrayed in this film are all true. The names are real names of real people and real organizations."
The original version of the movie had "The Damned's 'Dead Beat Dance'" on the scene where all of the punks are driving in Suicide's car, but some versions have a different song and it is a little longer. You can tell if the version you have is the original if there is loud laughter after Col. Glover says "Look, we've been through all this before. They could be anywhere" to his wife.
