A cop chases two hippies suspected of a series of Manson family-like murders; unbeknownst to him, the real culprits are the living dead, brought to life with a thirst for human flesh by chemical pesticides being used by area farmers.
Colonel Reynolds and his group of government scientists continue their work on re-animating the dead for military use. His son Curt and his girlfriend Julie use Dad's security pass to sneak in and watch the proceedings. 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. Written by

Director Brian Yuzna on the DVD commentary regrets not coming up with a more proper name for the film as "Return of the Living Dead III" is too long. He suggests the title "Kurt and Julie" and admits that the title "Mortal Zombie" (which it was called in some places in Europe) is a nice name. See more »

Probably the best 2nd sequel in the history of horror movies!
Usually, sequels are inferior to their original films. Fortunately, every once in a while there comes a sequel which by far surpasses the "first one". Brian Yuzna's "Return Of The Living dead 3" is one of those miraculous exceptions. A simple story of love, parenthood and zombies turns out to be one of the best horror films of all time, making the genre move forward both in quality and in innovation. There are some excellent performances, but the gore-effects take the lead role in another job well done by FX wizard Screaming Mad George. It's hard not to be captured by the movie's unique sense of humour allied to some ultra-violent scenes of pure horror and fantasy, that combine to tell the tragic story of a young man, who sees his beloved girlfriend turned into a flesh-eating creature that still loves him, but will sooner or later have to eat him! Brian Yuzna really got it once more, proving that he is one of the most promising horror directors for the future. Don't miss this one!
