The Return of the Living Dead is nuts

5 second plot: A group of friends and co-workers (and strangers) gets trapped in a medical supply warehouse and a neighboring mortuarium when a chemical is (accidentally) released that brings back the dead. These zombies only want one thing: brains.

5 second review: This is one crazy movie. It's completely over the top nuts. The movie is filled with memorable visuals, like the tar man (see below), and even more so with memorable lines, like 'more brains', 'technically you're not alive', 'send more cops',... It's hilarious and a must see for all horror fans.

IMDb score: 7,3/10

Fright Night gets right to it

5 second plot: Charley finds out that his new neighbor is a vampire. And he's killing someone every day. Everyone thinks Charley's imagination is running wild because he's a fan of monster movies. But the threat is real and soon enough Charley gets himself into a whole lot of trouble.

5 second review: This movie's got that awesome teenage '80s vibe. Add the fact that it's an old school fun monster movie and you've got a winner. There are some flaws here and there and it's sometimes overly dramatic. But it's still pretty decent and it's got some great memorable visual effects.

IMDb score: 7,1/10
