Raiders of the Living Dead, as far as zombie movies go, went pretty quickly for me. I gotta say straight up, I’m not sure about the beginning of the movie, so let’s move on. A hitchhiking reporter goes to Smalltown USA. Finds a room for rent, buys a gun, and ask one of the local females to the movies. Meanwhile a young kid temporarily living with his grampa (who also happens to be the town doctor), while attempting to repair grampa’s lazer machine he ends up turning it into a lazer gun (only after finding out it was able to kill his hamster). In this movie, the zombies “sleep” during the day, and only come out at night. Come to find out the town has a dirty little secret and the reporter finds out about it, and investigates the secret. I liked this movie and thought it was pretty fast paced. Enjoy!
