Later when father and son have a disagreement, Curt and Julie take off on a motorcycle and Julie is killed in an accident. Grief-stricken, Curt takes her body to the lab and brings her back to life. Curt must help Julie deal with her new existence as military agents and local gang members try to find them.
Here is the third installment of the Return of the Living Dead movies. With the first two movie being horror and sticking with the same story, but the second movies was trying way too hard to be funny and scary. This time around they moved away from the original story and moved more toward the government working with the dead now. It makes the movie sound like it would just be another living dead movie, but you would be so wrong. This one was so awesome for the day.
The story for this movie was not that bad. It was pretty basic. Two young high school kids fall in love quickly, then she gets bitten by a zombie because they got to be trespassing at his father's Army station. They were just really stupid, but in all of these movie, it is always one idiot that starts it all.
This movie was all about the special effects. When she starts to feel better by cutting up her body with glass and adding metal body decorations all over is when the movie really starts to take off. She looks so cool when she is all done up in her fighter mode. It all looks so painful, but it makes her able to really kick this Latino gangs in the ass. It is what she does to them that puts the icing on the cake. She really messes them up, but it all looks so cool. I want you to watch the movie to see want I am talking about. The special effects are great in this movie.
This chapter in the series did not do as well, but I think that it is one of the best. I love the first three movies. This movie is well worth watching. You will not be disappointed at all. Enjoy.
