A entertaining sequel for all the wrong reasons

"I loved Greoge Romero's Dawn of the Dead (aka Zombi) and Lucio Fulci's Zombie (aka Zombi 2), so I figured why not check out Zombi 3. I already knew the movie would be bad, so I bought it expecting just that. Of course its not a worthy sequel to the first two entries in the series, but its still enjoyable, for exactly the opposite of what made Zombi 1 & 2 so good. The acting, story, makeup, editing are all bad, but it just adds to the fun. This film has zombie birds, flying zombie heads, a zombie baby, and more off-the-wall outragousness. I found my self actually laughing aloud at some moments. Shriek Show Entertainment (a division of Media-Blasters) is only second to Anchor Bay Entertaiment to bringing these rare Italian gore gems to American DVD. They do a stupendous job restoring this movie to its full uncut format. For this, I applaud them. It's just awsome that these guys would go to so much work for such a bad movie. Finally, for those of you that loved Dawn Of The Dead and Zombie, just know what your buying here. This is NOT like those two films; it is almost a mockery of them. If you only like serious well-made horror flicks, avoid this film. If you like seeing rare gems like this to be entertained by the the outragousness and stupidity of them, pick this up today! As for me, I am going to pick up ZOMBIE 4: AFTER DEATH today!"

"I've seen this movie at the store for quite a while but was afraid to buy it. The only reason why I bought was becasue it's a Lucio Fulci film. To be honest I was expecting a lot more. The one thing I hated was the fact that the zombies instead of eating people right away, they fight their victims!! (Kung Fu Zombies) by the way some of them talk too, actaully there is a DJ zombie! and there is hardly any gore. If you want good zombie action, stick to the basics: "Night, Dawn, Day of the Dead" and "Zombie""
What if Troma remade Return of the Living Dead...

"What if Troma remade "The Return of the Living Dead"? Well, here's the answer. Zombi 3. The only difference being that I don't think this was intentionally made to be so bad. It still works as an all-out, goof-ball, p.o.s. zombie flick that's so bad it's funny. Just don't go in expecting "Day of the Dead" ... Watch for the "main" scientist's spasticated body movements used to accentuate his nonexistent acting skills and the soldier's inability to react at people shooting at them. These I found particularly funny."
The unintentional humor will have you in tears!!!!

"This movie had me floored. I laughed through 90% of this so-called zombie flick. The scene with the flying zombie head made me laugh so hard I nearly couldn't catch my breath. Another thing that was so stupid about that part was the fact that the head was waiting in the refrigerator just plotting on the off chance that two morons would have the munchies and check out the kitchen. Sure enough two idiots show up. Who on earth would be thinking about their stomach while hundreds of ravenous zombies are waiting to attack them?
I guess you can see that the plot and the writing isn't that great. Hell, just by looking at the cover will tell you that. Don't come into this thinking that you will get scares or something thought-provoking will ensue, because you'll just be disappointed. But if you like laughing at cheesy special effects, bad acting and down right stupid characters this film seeks to please. I gave it three stars for the laugh factor.
Here's a piece of advice. Don't forget to pack the Depends!!"
