Two policemen are brought back to life to chase down supernatural criminals.
Features the big reveal of the 1949 movie D.O.A. in the scene where Randi and Roger return to Randi's house and find Doug dead.
Det. Roger Mortis:
How do you fight this thing?
Det. Doug Bigelow: Maybe you can drown it in A1 sauce.
When Roger is examined by Rebecca after his resurrection, he cuts himself and does not bleed as he is found to have no pulse. Later he is shot and bleeds from his wounds, which contradicts his earlier examination.
TV versions have additional scenes that were cut out of the original release. Included: The Mausoleom part is longer (and includes an appearance by Dick Miller), Mortis having a nightmare about his Death Day Party (with Piscopo in Zomibiefied makeup). These scenes and more are included on the 2004 DVD release (in rough but watchable quality).
