Special features announced for Return of the Living Dead Part II Blu-ray

Back in May we passed along the killer news that Scream Factory is bringing Ken Wiederhorn's "love it or hate it" zombie-comedy classic RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD PART II to Blu-ray this August. The release will be branded as a “Collector’s Edition” and today we have word on all of the special features! 

This definitive set includes a collectible slipcover featuring newly rendered artwork and a reversible cover wrap featuring original theatrical key art. A must-have for movie collectors, zombie horror enthusiasts, and loyal fans, this Collector’s Edition Blu-ray is available for pre-order now.

For those who may not know, or may have just forgotten, THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD sequel follows this synopsis:

The horror begins again as mysterious barrels bounce off an Army transport as it passes through a new housing development and land near an abandoned cemetery. Mischievous neighborhood boys discover the barrels and open them, unaware of the evil contained within. A deadly green vapor escapes and turns the living into flesh-eating zombies and causes the dead to rise from their graves. As these hideous living dead hunt down the fresh human brains they need, man is pitted against man, and the living against the dead. It is a macabre struggle for survival!
