Trivia

(at around 55 mins) After devouring a security guard's brain, a zombie picks up a phone the guard had been speaking into and says "Send more security guards!" This pays direct homage to the original The Return of the Living Dead (1985), in which a zombie who had been devouring a paramedic picks up the radio in the ambulance and says "Send more paramedics."

Goofs

(at around 16 mins) When Garrison pumps the gas into the container to re-animate the severed arm, you can see the gas leaking out into the room. That should, but doesn't, turn him into a zombie. See more »

Quotes

Julian Garrison: What's all this for?
Charles Garrison: Ain't it obvious? World domination! What else is everything ultimately for? Hahahaha!

necrapolis...
18 January 2006 | by murdoc995See all my reviews

Upon my anticipation for the two RTOLD sequels, I was extremely disappointed to encounter these terrible cop-outs for sci-fi pictures. I didn't think that the rape of a film-series could ever evolve on this level. However, as I caught the film on Sci-Fi, I saw the 4th one first and thought it was'nt SO bad.. simple story, simple structure. Very poor and dry acting sets the pace as a group of Teenagers bent on dirt-biking, find themselves trying to save a friend from a chemical company which is harvesting our favorite zombie-making chemical.

Friends ZEKE(Elvin Dandel), JULIAN(John Keefe), BECKY(Amie Chadwick), CODY(Corey Hardick), CARLOES(Toma Dinala), JULIANS kid-brother JAKE(Alexandru Geoana), ZEKES exigirlfriend KATIE(Jana Kramer), MIMI(DIANA MUNTEANU) and DARREN(Razvan Oprea) are all dirt-biking lovers. However, after ZEKE wrecks his bike, he finds himself presumed dead and in the care of JULIANS uncle CHARLES'(Best actor thus far PETER COYOTE) company HybraTech. The crew of teens then go special-ops as they try and attempt to rescue ZEKE, and accidentally release numerous zombies into the facility.

The cheese-fest starts up when the characters are all unbelievably older than they are. The plot is so dried-up, but recycles itself with oodles of zombie-action. But don't get excited, the zombies are a major disappointment.. remember the invincible undead which made the ROTLD series interesting? Well, they are'nt here. We do have the talking, brain-craver's from before, but on a reduced One-Shot-To-The-Head Romero basis. One thing that also ticks me is that Every time someone usually got bitten, it was a zombie chomping into the same spot on the back of the skull... Every time. It got to expecting.

Despite all the crap this new line of sequels adds to the mix, it IS a rather entertaining zombie film... except that one zombie has a thing to want to start street-fighting. Regardless, this IS better than its follow-up, ROTLD 5: Rave To The Grave. I'd check this one out again to see the good special-effects make-up, to some of the more thought out kills. The major thing that should be redone is changing the name from ROTLD to some other zombie film... it would've been much better, speaking also for the sequel.

Overrall, if your looking for a bonified sequel to the infamous Russel Streiner film-collage, don't touch this with a 10-foot-pole.
