Return of the Living Dead (1985 Trailer / Orion Pictures)
The show features a first time ever Pittsburgh reunion of seven cast members from the 1985 horror comedy, “The Return of the Living Dead”, led by veteran actor Clu Gulager. Mr. Gulager played Burt Miller, the owner of “Uneeda Medical Supply” in the film. He has appeared in scores of films and television shows including the role of Deputy Emmett Ryker in seasons 3 through 6 of the classic western TV series “The Virginian” as well as appearing in the films “The Killers”, “The Last Picture Show” and “McQ”. Most recently, Mr. Gulager has appeared in several films directed by his son, John Gulager, including “Piranha 3DD” and the “Feast” film series.

Other “Return” cast members appearing at Horror Realm are: Thom Mathews (Freddy), Beverly Randolph (Tina), John Phibin (Chuck), Jewel Shephard (Casey), Brian Peck (Scuz) and Linnea Quigley (Trash).
