Trivia

The film had a troubled production. When director William Lustig's rough cut came in at only 51 minutes, he refused to shoot the additional scenes the producers wanted and quit the project; the balance of the picture was directed by co-producer Joel Soisson. Prior to Blue Underground's DVD and Blu-ray release of the movie in 2013, Lustig was the film's credited director. However, the Blue Underground version is credited to the Director's Guild of America pseudonym Alan Smithee. See more »

Goofs

Delivers the goods, but the priest subplot falls flat (mostly, anyway)
25 May 2012 | by (Ladson, SC) – See all my reviews

The third time is also the charm for MC3, but it's slightly less interesting than 1 & 2. For starters, the voodoo stuff is unconvincing and unnecessary. If you notice at the end of MC2, when Cordell was still in the casket, He was seen reaching for his badge, indicating he's still alive. So why a resurrection if he isn't really dead? Even if I had enjoyed it more, it would still be pointless, since this priest has resurrected a living body. Plus, the movie mostly takes place in a hospital, like "Halloween II". Of course, the chase scene is the most fun. Even the convenience store robbery doesn't work as well as it should. If the robber looks familiar to you, he's Jackie Earle Haley (Freddy Krueger, of the NOES remake.

*** out of ****
