A more straightforward horror film than the darkly comic Return of the Living Dead Part II (1988), this third chapter in the "Living Dead" saga was directed by Brian Yuzna and is quite similar plot-wise to his earlier film, Bride of Re-Animator (1990). J. Trevor Edmond and Mindy Clarke star as Curt Reynolds and Julie Walker, a young couple in love. Curt's father is Col. John Reynolds (Kent McCord), a scientist working on a top-secret project at a nearby military compound. When Curt steals his dad's security pass and sneaks Julie into the base, they discover that the project involves bringing corpses back to life using the powerful gas Trioxin, responsible for events in the previous films. The military hopes to use the mindless, flesh-consuming zombies as weapons, but the experiment goes gruesomely awry. Later, Julie is killed in an accident on Curt's motorcycle and the grief-stricken boyfriend brings her to the base and exposes her to the gas. As she begins craving human flesh, Curt must try to keep her alive while also facing down a local street gang he's unintentionally crossed, as well as the soldiers seeking Julie, led by his father.

I thought this movie was really good. I first found out about this movie when I saw this video by Jack Off Jill. Basically, music video. This movie has some funny parts, but also some touching parts to the movie. I would see it is a movie to see more then once.

Great Zombie movie for all you Old School Zombie brain eaters out there, but oh, there's a developed love story to this one as well! Guy loses girl, Guy exposes girl to undead gas, girl becomes masochistic sexy flesh hungry Zombie! Can anyone say, BrRaAAaiInnsssSSsSs! Lots of interesting Zombies and gorey effects in this movie. A must for any Horror Collector.

I had seen this film some years ago and i remembered it as a classic, so i watched it again last night.Better than ever i have to say.More zombie love story than flesheater,it still has plenty for the hardened splatter fans to lap up.Mindy Clarke is the undead to die for and she delivers a performance far more intense than the role would have called for.I would recommend rotld 3 to all fans of the genre and i believe that this is the best all round instalment of the series.

Maybe I'm just jaded, but I had the tendency to ignore most of the sappy love scenes of this movie (although I guess they were okay). I focused instead on the cheesy dialogue some of the characters had. This turned it into one of the funniest movies I had seen in awhile, and one I would gladly recommend to others.

I just saw this movie for the second time on cable (it had been a while), and, really, if you can look beyond the massive plotholes in the storyline, it is not all that bad. It is certainly entertaining enough to hold the viewrer's interest. A young man named Curt (J. Trevor Edmond) is fed up with moving from base to base as his dad, Col. John Reynolds (Kent McCord) is continually being transfered due to the nature of his job. While his dad is working on a secret government toxin, Curt is unaware that it will be used to turn zombies into killing machines for warfare purposes. He finds out about the experiments only after he and his girlfriend, Julie (Mindy Clarke), go on a joyride and visit the site without authourization. Soon enough, after Julie is killed in a motorcycle accident, Curt brings her back to life using the toxin, and everything goes haywire! The plot is not the problem, but rather how it is executed. If you can ignore the many shortcummings of this film technically and simply view it as a ''what if...'' type of entertainment, then you may find it interesting. The acting is not bad by any means, and the special effects are fine. It drags a bit in the middle because too much occurs too early in the film, leaving the story to slowly unwind. However, I have seen a lot worse than this, and I have been watching horror films since I was five years old, including some very rare [and probably out of print] movies.
