I recall another 1980s underground bunker film in my mind partially but I cannot connect with the title. Know it had zombies roaming around, started out in some kind of a shop at the beginning of the film and ended up in a bunker they thought the zombies couldn't get to. The leads were "teens" who sure looked older than teenagers. That's all I can remember. Suspect it was a parody of the Dead series of some kind.

Offhand, I am going to try some free association.  Zombie films all tend to end up with the characters barricaded somewhere, so that could be a tough one.

The Dead Next Door
Burial Ground (unlikely, as I think you would have remembered the creepy midget guy who was supposed to be a young child)

I split this off from the other topic to give it visibility.

Andrew I've remembered some more stuff about this one (but honestly it's entirely possible I'm mixing two films together in my head): The zombies may have in fact been mutants who acted like zombies and there was an end of the world aspect to the film. Honestly I did a search of IMDB and came up with URBAN WARRIORS (1987) which sounds oddly familiar and fits my description although it makes no mention of teens or a shop so I'm hardly certain.

Ah, Urban Warriors.

IIRC that is an atrocious opus "movie" that uses footage from just about every Corman production you can think of.

However the mutants in a post-apoc setting is a clue.  Search IMDB for these titles:

Creepozoids
The Terror Within
The Terror Within II
Hybrid

If it's not one of those it might be. . .

Biohazard
Biohazard II

If it's none of those then search Fred Olen Ray and Roger Corman's IMDB entry.  Odds are the movie is something one of them produced/worked on.

TERROR WITHIN seems a possibility. Might be combining it with URBAN WARRIORS, which is the title that still seems most familiar to me.

I really do not think that it is "Urban Warriors."  I have a review here:

Another thing I recall about the "teens"...there was a male and female lead.  Pretty certain the male wore a leather or biker's jacket.

Was this an American film?  The actors didn't have Australian accents by chance?  Sounds vaguely, and I do mean vaguely, like "Death Warmed Up" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089002/  I mean, there is a scene in a shop in the first bit of the film.  They are chased by mutated "zombie-like" creeps.  They do end up in a bunker.

Just taking a shot.

Actually I suspect the voices in the film may have been English dubbed.

And it may well be that I'm mixing together two films here. Searching films from the 80s, REMOTE CONTROL (1987) sounds like half of the plot described above only without the zombies and underground bunker.

So does anyone know of a movie basically like REMOTE CONTROL (1987), with a leather jacket wearing young hero and a young female lead saving the world in some fashion but also involving zombie/mutant-like people and an underground bunker or am I just meshing two movies together in my memory? Entirely possible that given my penchant years back for renting pairs of B-movies.

Just learned from another site that REMOTE CONTROL does in fact have zombie-like people (although not actual zombies) and a scene underground so I'm thinking it's definitely the film in question.

Offtopic but...
That movie was totally messed up! Especially that freaky "kid".   "Momma!"
