They Will Leave You Brainless!
PLOT
Julian, Zeke and their friends are a group of high school seniors with nothing much to do. They live the typical teen lifestyle until Julian's uncle brings something unnatural back to town.

Uncle Charles works for the Mega Corporation Hybratech, conducting inhumane experiments on human test subjects with a mutated chemical compound called Trioxyn-5. This chemical re-animates the dead.

It all amounts to trouble when Zeke finds himself as one of the test subjects, and his not entirely capable friends attempt to rescue him. As the kids break into the facility they find and release more zombies than they can handle. The worst is in store for the kids when they discover that Uncle Charles' favorite test subjects turn out to be Julian's parents who have been mechanically mutated into uber zombies. The rescue mission has some deadly and often humorous consequences for the kids.

INTERESTING TIDBITS
Tobe Hooper had once been named director, but that was never officially finalized. Talks were said to have also been had with Stuart Gordon to get in the director's chair.
Writer William Butler has been quoted (2003), "We're writing these films as fans. I'm having so much fun! They are the zombie movies that I grew up with. We really pay homage to the first [ROTLD] film, and we want to get many of the original cast back for cameos, especially Thom Mathews and James Karen."
Release date was originally going to be December 2002 and was originally subtitled Necropolis. That was scrapped and it was then titled Rave From the Grave. Now that title has been given to part 5, while part 4 has been re-subtitled Necropolis. It was a previous possibility that the Necropolis story could be its own separate film.
William Butler played Tom in the 1990 remake of Night of the Living Dead and Ryan in Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3.
In 2001, writer William Butler told Fangoria magazine, "I'm reinventing the franchise. My take on the sequel is a combination of martial arts, anime and horror. [Executive producer Tom Fox] would like to get a Dawson's Creek cast in there this time, and we are beginning to talk with directors."
