Return of the Living Dead Part 3 Review


Having recently witnessed the horrific results of a top secret project to bring the dead back to life, a distraught youth performs the operation on his girlfriend after she's killed in a motorcycle accident.

Although Return of the Living Dead III (1993)¬†does not follow in the spoof-wannabe footsteps of the previous two flicks, it stands out as a zombie love story of sorts without sacrificing scares or gore. Trevor Edmond plays a teen whose father (Kent McCord) is in charge of recent experiments, trying to use them as a form of biological weapons for the military. However, the boy’s father is soon to be relocated, and the teen decides to run away from home with his girlfriend (Mindy Clarke) to live happily ever after; but that doesn’t happen. A motorcycle accident takes the life of his girlfriend, and in his distress, he uses the toxic gas to revive her. Soon, they are both on the run from the military, the girl creating more zombies via her bite as they go. The highlight of the film being when Julie emerges from the sewer as a gruesome yet somewhat sexy zombified version of her former self to defend her boyfriend from a street gang. The final twenty minutes of the flick features a plethora of the undead stalking around the military installation, and the ending will leave a tear in your eye (if you’re that type of person). Thanks go to John Penney for actually putting some thought and good characterization in his script. A great zombie flick all around.
