Return of the Living Dead Edit
Burt is a fictional undertaker and a main character featured in the Return of the Living Dead film series. He was played by actor Clu Gulager and appeared in the first installment of the series in 1985. Burt ushered in a young understudy named Freddy and showed him a secret room in the mortuary containing canisters marked with a U.S. Army seal. He went on to explain how scenes from the 1968 film Night of the Living Dead were actually based on real events. Naturally, one of the canisters busted open, revealing a gooey dripping zombie. One of the zombies bit Burt, infecting him with the virus, slowly turning him into one of the undead as well. Rather than continue to exist as a flesh-eating creature, Burt elected to take his own life by crawling into a crematorium.
