Tommy Dean Musset,
A group of scientists have developed the Resonator, a machine which allows whoever is within range to see beyond normal perceptible reality. But when the experiment succeeds, they are immediately attacked by terrible life forms.
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

J Trevor Edmund (Curt) believes it's his many portrayals of Romeo on stage that helped him land his role in the film. See more »
(at around 7 mins) During one of the early observation room scenes, Colonel Reynolds right (on screen left) epaulet clearly bears the rank of colonel, while his left epaulet (on screen right) bears the rank of lieutenant colonel. In the previous scene as well as those immediately following, both epaulets bear the rank of lieutenant colonel. See more »
Vidmark released this film in both Unrated and R-rated versions on VHS and laserdisc in the 1990s. The R version deletes the majority of the film's gore from the opening lab sequence, as well as heavily reducing the shooting of the storekeeper, removing scenes where a cop's eye is punctured with a crowbar and closeups of Julie's self-mutilation with a wire spring and a piece of glass, and a reduction to the infamous 'ripped lip' sequence.

A surprisingly good and (somewhat) original horror film
Return of the Living Dead III is the type of horror film you can watch with your friends, or your girlfriend. It is a film with a romantic (yet tragic) edge to it that saves it from the muck of sequel overkill. The story follows a young man who, after seeing his girlfriend die who he loves so much, brings her back to life in a top secret facility with the gas that brings back the dead from part 1 (without them being able to get electricuted), but then strange things happen. Clever horror with a edge, with it's only problem not stopping too often and of course the sequel overkill. Still worth a look, especially for horror enthusaists who don't believe there's life after part 2. A-
