A small group of teens are going to or leaving prom nite and they get hit by a truck transporting chemicals or something and it brings them back as zombies. I think it's a late 80S early 90s film and I remeber a couple of the deaths in the movie. In one scene they spit in a cop's face and break his neck. In another they kill a mechanic by pumping him full of oil. Also, at the end of the movie they push two people into a woodchipper, and the girl that was killed was wearing a dress.

Seems it's Night Life from 1989. All the details are there (teenagers, prom, chemical truck, wood chipper, overpumping someone to death). Beware - graphic images inside:

This seems like a pretty decent match - good find +1 – Nobby Mar 20 '13 at 16:12

Sounds like "Return of the Living Dead" I or II.

Well it's definately not the first one, but i haven't seen the second one. you're answer is also very brief, could you please tell us why you think it's one of these? – DForck42 Dec 14 '12 at 16:43
Return of the Living Dead 2 certainly starts with a barrel rolling off an army truck, but I don't recall the other things you mentioned. I'll have a think. – Nobby Jan 13 '13 at 15:42
Reading through imdb seems like the sequel fits the description we might need more elaboration in this post – Dredd Jan 13 '13 at 17:04
Neither Return of the Living Dead 1 or 2 have the listed death scenes. Great movies though. 3 is the best. – cde Aug 25 at 22:26
