Overview

In this sequel to 1985's Return of the Living Dead, a bunch of horny teens discover that their new designer drug is actually a chemical that turns humans into flesh-eating zombies. Unfortunately, they don't make this discovery until they're in the middle of an enormous outdoor dance party, where the wild costumes and chemically induced shenanigans make it difficult to tell who's a zombie and who's simply having a good time. Although it shares plot points, characters, actors, and crew with Return of the Living Dead 4: Necropolis, Return of the Living Dead 5: Rave to the Grave features only a cameo from Peter Coyote, the sole bold-faced name from the previous film. Both movies were co-written by William Butler, who previously acted in 1990's Night of the Living Dead remake, among other horror films.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Return of the Living Dead and its first sequel were enjoyably goofy attempts to graft punk trappings onto the basic George A. Romero zombie concept. The teen fashions may have been as secondhand as the horror setup, but the low-budget execution was right-on. After the darker Return of the Living Dead III and the just-plain-awful Return of the Living Dead 4: Necropolis, this fifth installment returns the series to its original zombies-and-subcultures scenario. The rave scene replaces the punk milieu, but in other respects Rave to the Grave stays true to the franchise's roots. The script, by returning scribes William Butler and Aaron Strongoni, is almost as dull as that of the previous outing. But the whole ecstasy-users-equals-zombies concept is worth a chuckle or two, and the climactic dance party provides plenty of opportunities for colorful gore and pop-cultural riffing. Tobe Hooper's name was once thrown around as a possible director for both this installment and Necropolis -- a fact that underscores Ellory Elkayem's shortcomings as a director. But Return of the Living Dead 5: Rave to the Grave is a perfectly adequate time-filler for both the SciFi Channel's schedule and horror fans' Saturday afternoons.

    Disappointing Return

    In the world of horror films there is a clear distinciton between good B movies and bad ones. Return of the Living Dead 5 manages to easily place itself in the latter category. The first film in the series did a wonderful job of balancing horror with indirect comedy. Rave to the Grave's clumsy plot and poor acting do very little for the zombie genre. The scenes that are supposed to be funny come off more like a poorly executed high school film where the camp is just too unbearibly campy to be taken genuinly funny. To it's credit, there are a decent amount of zombies interspersed in and between some scenes. That is about it though. If you are a gore fan then just forget about this movie all together. It isn't nearly as gory as one would expect it to be and while that isn't the only selling point for a zombie fan, it matters. After it is all over you are left with a bit of disappointment (because you know it could have been better) and a hole in your pocket where $24.29 used to be. It does have a pretty awesome cover but that really isn't worth your hard earned dollar. Rave to the Grave's plot is silly and horrendously contrived so please, do yourself a favor and stay away from this film whether you are a fan of the genre or you are just looking for a scare. This film has disappointment in spades, friends.
