John Penney and Brian Yuzna claim in recent Vestron Blu-Ray extras that they felt the need to explain why zombies eat brains. The film explains they need the neurons because their nervous systems shut down. The first Return of the Living Dead explains it by saying "brains make the pain go away". Why a further explanation was needed isn't clear, especially since ROTLD3's zombie seem to eat any body part and don't just go for the brain as they did in the first 2 films. See more »

Return of the Living Dead III (1993) was released upon the 25th anniversary of the release of Night of the Living Dead (1968). Instead of making another bad spoof, Brian Yuzna wisely decided to make a return to the basics. A creepy and dark horror film. A young military brat and his girl are fooling around on a motorcycle and she's killed in a fatal accident. Grief stricken and severely sprung, the kid takes his girl to the army base where his dad works and takes her to a secret lab and revives her. Sadly the boy doesn't know what he's unleashed and this young "frankenstein" has to destroy his little "creation". If you're going to watch this movie please avoid the "rated" version. As in all of Brian Yuzna's films he likes to make his flicks over the top and very gory. The "family" rental companies carry the "rated" version so "look out" for the "unrated" label. If not then you'll be treated to a bunch of freeze frames and badly cut scenes. A sad tale about true love.
Let's hope this ends the series. If it does then it'll end on a high note.
