This was a great movie, and a very interesting series overall. The first one was just a very poorly made sci-fi horror film, but it seemed to try to be serious. The second was a really funny parody of the first, and unlike the first it was very much worth watching. This one, on the other hand was serious like the first but this time it was really more of a sci-fi drama than a horror flick. It was still a zombie movie, but it was more centered around a touching story than an attempt to be scary.

"It's a shame I have to drag out my old unrated VHS tape of this to catch all the gore. I waited a long time for this to come out on DVD and we get the cut "R" version. It's still gory as all get out but is missing a few scenes that I need to be happy. Whoever released the "R" version on DVD dropped the ball."

"This unique sequel finds two teenage-lovers Curt and Julie looking for a thrill, and they find it in a secret Government research lab where Curt's Dad works. There, they learn the chilling factor that the dead can remain living with the help of a chemical called '2-4-5 Trioxin.' Curt horrified, Julie amazed, both flee to Curts house to chill out. When Curts' father returns home they both get in an argument that causes Curt and Julie to escape on Curts' motorcycle. Unfortunately for Julie, there is a motorcycle accident and Julie is killed. Curt, afraid to live without her, revives her with the chemical Trioxin. But Julie isn't the same as she use to be, she feels different and very, very hungry. In a murderous accident Julie soon learns that only the taste of brains will norish her. Curt disgusted at what he sees begins to regret his actions. But then Julie learns that the pain helps, pain makes the hunger go away. With a Mexican gang on thier tails, the teenagers escape and find a new friend called 'River-Man.' As Julies' urges for brains grow stronger, she goes to drastic measures and does some serious decorating on her own body using metal, glass, chains and more to create enough pain to sustain her.
With her urges growing stronger to attack Curt, Julie must under-go a painful transformation, if she ever hopes to leave Curts' brains in his head where they belong.
I really enjoyed this movie, I found it as good as the first and way better then the horrible Part 2. The plot-line had a good speed, it didn't drag nor rush into things. The acting by Curt and Julie is fantastic and 'The new Julie' looks very cool and gross. If you're a gore hound then I highly recommend this movie. If you want more gore, there is an uncut version located on the UK Amazon site, hyperlink at the bottom of the page. The uncut version is well worth buying, but I recommend you make sure your DVD player is multi-region first."
Great and ultra gory sequel

"Return of the Living Dead 3 is a large departure from the other two films in the series. Where as those two films combined dark humor and zombie horror, director Brian Yuzna (Bride of Re-Animator) goes all out with some of the goriest zombie action to see release in this country. When a young girl (Melinda Clarke) is killed in a motorcycle accident, her boyfriend uses the experimental facility where his father works which re-animates corpses to bring her back to life. However, when she comes back, she's got a hunger she's never had before, and it's like the old saying goes; a girl's gotta eat. The acting is surprisingly solid, with Clarke being almost perfect as the zombified girl who still loves her boyfriend. The gore is extremely realistic and there is loads of it, so be warned; gorehounds will find plenty to love here. All in all, this is one low budget horror film that is definitely worth checking out."
