really is the narration even needed?
It's assuming no one had seen the original.


or noticed that the title was return of the living dead par 2....i mean all you need to know is that there are zombies and they want to eat brains
Yeah but then you wouldn't know who the James Karen and Thom Mathews characters are even though they have nothing to do with their characters in the first film.

Now supposedely the music is different on the DVD. Is it the songs? Score? Both? I don't know the movie well enough to know.



The music score on the DVD release is almost completely different to the original theater, laserdisc and VHS versions. This is widely said to be because of difficulties obtaining the rights to use the original score. However, the original score can be heard on the French audio track.
Is it better or worse or the same?


don't know I've only ever seen the dvd

I'm watching the new version and I'd have to say that it's worse, though, unlike part one, this movie was never known for any of the music in it anyway. The songs on the soundtrack are terrible.

Is it terrible because you're not used to it or is it cheesy and lame?
