The Great Unwatched: Return of the Living Dead 3 (1993)

Director: Brian Yuzna

Runtime: 93 minutes

Admittedly, I should've watched something much shorter. I have to wake up for work an hour earlier these days and I'm still adjusting. Ah well. This was a typical Brian Yuzna film -- aka a lot of dopey, over-the-top fun from a guy who has clearly hung out with Stuart Gordon a lot but has a bizarre comic book sensibility running underneath everything. I don't know if I'd qualify his films as good from an objective standpoint, but they sure as hell entertain (if not always for the right reasons). Return of the Living Dead 3 actually makes a good attempt at injecting some pathos into the 245-Trioxin saga, by giving us a zombie who maintains her personality and memories after revival. Overall, an enjoyable flick.

Worth the Purchase: Yes.

Stats: 16/401 movies watched in thirteen days.
Currently Projected Completion Date: January 15, 2010
