    A terrorist’s secret … a teenager’s revenge –

    Raiders of Living Dead is a film about a mad scientist who’s creating zombies on a remote island. A teenager (played by Scott Schwartz) pursues the walking dead with a self-built weapon made from a LaserDisc player’s laser. It was directed by Samuel M. Sherman and distributed by Independent-International.

    On the poster shown above, the title combines Tintoretto and all-caps Pendry Script, both available from Letraset at the time. The intro text is set in caps from the eroded Caslon Antique. Pendry Script (Martin Wait, 1981) also appears in the trailer, here paired with Helvetica Black in faux small caps.
