More Info IMDb

Marginally tough tough guys Treat Williams and Joe Piscopo are Roger Mortis (ouch) and Doug Bigelow, two reckless LA cops suddenly embroiled in a white-collar zombie manufacturing scheme. When Roger is killed, he returns looking for answers...and vengeance! Armed to the teeth and rotting to pieces, he unleashes a fully automatic deathwave on the parties responsible. Possibly the most unreasonable action premise of the '80s, and DEAD HEAT delivers. Late greats Vincent Price and Darren McGavin add their solid gold to the mix, along with mutated bikers, mad scientists, endless explosions, decomposing flesh and a reanimated Asian meat market packed with decapitated chickens and gyrating sausages! You heard me. (Zack Carlson)
