    "She rose up, like a big ol' black viper and pulled 'em under...swallowed 'em whole!" The teen son of the Army commander running the military's reanimation project uses the government's medical advancements to bring his girlfriend back from the dead after a fatal motorcycle accident. She hates how she now insatiably craves flesh for consumption, and much to the chagrin of her boyfriend, attempts suicide. Unsuccessful, and now with both the Bahala Na Gang and the military in pursuit, the couple meet a helpful homeless sewer-rat called "Riverman" who guides them as they plan on heading toward Seattle to start a band. Unfortunatey, the zombie-tendencies become too much for her to control, as she starts to resemble a black metal musician (including homicidal inclinations) until she gets caught up in a seemingly S&M contraption (for research purposes, of course). Crazy action and gore in this horror, and while it features much less comedy than the previous two, I found it more enjoyable than the first sequel (though, certainly not as magical as the original!).

    Pure zombie-reffic silliness. Lots of grunting and gore and exactly what you expect.

    Absolutely underrated gem. This movie actually pioneered the zombie romance movie in a way much better than warm bodies did.It's also paced extremely well, with one scene flowing into the next. The focus on horror over comedy actually make some like this one over the original and definitely more than the second movie. Hope it gets a better following one day.

    After a ghoulish and bright start this humourless movie runs out of ideas.

    This is by no means a *good* movie, but its most redeeming qualities, the dynamic between the protagonist and his girlfriend make the movie endearing. The practical effects, while ambitious, are hit and miss -- the misses being nowhere near as good as the previous two Living Dead films. The story is simple and surprisingly sweet, which really benefits the negative aspects of the film's production. I feel if the production aspects of this film were much better this would be a really strong movie. As it stands though, the cheesy music, sometimes laughable practical effects, and dated character portrayals make this film something worth watching for Living Dead fans, if only for the powerful and tragic conclusion to the movie.

    I quite enjoy the films of producer/director Brian Yuzna, who had no connection to the first two Return of the Living Dead films and puts his own stamp on this series wit this third entry. The story follows a punk rock girl who happens to witness a secret government project and finds herself turned into a walking talking zombie following a motorcycle accident. Yuzna leaves out much of the comedy of the earlier films and made more of a straight horror films, but he didn't make this a traditional Romero style zombie picture either and instead made the punk rock girl more of a human-like zombie who the audience feels empathy for, which was a new twist on the genre for the time. When this film was first released, I remember being disappointed and wanted a more traditional of zombie siege film, with characters trapped somewhere and surrounded by the hungry reanimated dead, but going into this film knowing it wasn't that type of story, I think I appreciated it more this time around, even if it still isn't exactly a classic or in the same league as Yuzna's best films (those would be "Society" and "Beyond Re-Animator," though I also quite enjoyed "Faust" and "The Dentist").

    A very trashy sequel to the horror comedy. More of a straight to video feel about this... watchable for zombie fans.

    An often overlooked Brian Yuzna flick, recommended for gore hounds. The unrated blu ray looks great.
