More Unseen Artwork: The Original Return of the Living Dead ... in 3D?

The San Diego Reader's Jay Allen Sanford is back with another batch of unused artwork for some of Hollywood's biggest (and littlest) flicks, and while this latest treasure trove of goodies is light on horror, it does reveal a little known factoid that you may have been completely unaware of.

Below you'll find unused artwork for the 1985 Dan O'Bannon classic The Return of the Living Dead which reveals that two years prior to its release the film was conceived as a 3D feature. Nifty, no?

Head on over to Jay's blog for more artwork from The Ninth Configuration, Mac and Me, The Inheritors, The Rosary Murders, and even Meatballs III!

LifeMi: I loved the Zombies dealing with loss of humanity part of ROTLD3 and the zombies at the ending looked fantastic but for me it was the romeo and juliet aspect and the very ending that I just couldn't stand

I think the Romeo and Juliet elements are what divide people, because there's not a lot of horror and zombie action. I'm more of a story guy, so I'm down with a great story over great gore and felt the story of Curt and Julie was genuinely horrific and touching.

It's been a while since I've seen it to be fair, but I've always liked ROTLD 3. I appreciate the style and the concept; how many times do we see zombies dealing with their loss of humanity? I dug the Romeo and Juliet-esqueness of the story and thought the ending was great.

Hm, also when Hooper was gonna direct. Do I smell a Return of the Living Dead remake in 3D?

Bite your tongue, dude!

The Return sequels range from amusing to absymal. A remake is a terrible idea.

ROTLD 2 was an amateurish disaster, but I liked ROTLD 3 quite a bit. Never worked up the courage to see 4 and 5.
