A reporter learns that poking your nose into the wrong places can earn you a face full of rotting zombies.  Luckily, a brat kid who invented a lasergun is there to save the day.

For your ol buddy Ken's explanation of who the terrorist is, his relationship to the Man in Black, and why this movie makes so little sense, see his review

I don't know of any Troma connection with this one.  It does have a convoluted pedigree, which is why there are three versions: 

Dark Night
Dying Day
Raiders of the Living Dead

The film was apparently edited each time, with newly shot material added each time, until we finally got to "Raiders of the Living Dead" - a much different movie than the original script.

Wow, you've made this film sound entirely too coherent.

Amazingly, Raiders of the Living Dead was treated to one of the most elaborate DVD releases EVER.  There were three radically different versions of the film, and we get all through, along with commentaries explaining how we got from Version A to Version C, the picture you review here.  For people with the tolerance to sit through all of this, it's an astounding and often fascinating look at low budget film making.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
