“The third part in a series of movies usually is nowhere near the original; however, Brian Yuznau0026#39;s take on the u0026quot;Return of the Living Deadu0026quot; makes the third installment in the famous comedy/horror series, a very different and special movie. Getting away from the slapstick comedy aspect of the previous films, director Yuzna u0026amp; writer John Penney unfold a tale of doomed love and gory violence spiced up with very dark humor. Quite a change from part 2; in fact, the only thing this movie has in common with the previous chapters is the inclusion of the re-animating gas.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003ePenneyu0026#39;s script is like a bizarre twist on u0026quot;Romeo u0026amp; Julietu0026quot;: Curt Reynolds (J. Trevor Edmond) is an angsty teenager in love with rebel Julie Walker (Melinda Clarke). While sneaking in the military base where Curtu0026#39;s father (Kent McCord) works, they discover that the project his father has been working involves re-animating corpses. After a tragic accident where Julie dies, Curt decides to bring back Julie using his fatheru0026#39;s experiments with the infamous chemical: 245 Trioxin.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRight after Julie is revived, the action starts and never stops, with the couple running away from both the army and a gang that wants them dead. To make things worse, Julieu0026#39;s increasing urge to eat human flesh and Curtu0026#39;s own anxiety and family troubles collide and make the trip harder for the lovers.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBrian Yuzna really created something special with this movie, the characters are very rich and are the backbone of the movie. The acting is top notch, something quite different from the typical b-movie. In fact, the movie is so well done in those aspects that its flaws in SFx and overall production are easily forgiven.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe movie has a lot of heart and the credit for that must go to Yuznau0026#39;s direction and Penneyu0026#39;s script. The couple of lovers must really grow to face the situation and to face each otheru0026#39;s troubles. The acting is very good for the most part, but is Clarke who gives the performance as Julie. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe transformation from self confident daredevil to fearful victim of the circumstances, and then to ruthless killing machine is very believable and one cannot avoid to feel sympathy for her character. A really remarkable job.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSadly, the movie is not perfect, the low budget hurts the production a lot and the sets look a bit fake, However, itu0026#39;s worth to point out that the make-up effects in the zombies and the gore are quite good for the budget.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBy far the best movie in the series, and among the best and most creative horror movies ever done. Director Brian Yuzna has not been able yet to come up close to this achievement, but he earned his place in history with this movie. 8/10. A modern classic.”
