ZOMBI 3 (1988)

I was lucky enough a few weeks ago to see Fulci's original ZOMBIE in the movie theater and even though the movie isn't all that good, it was still a lot of fun. ZOMBI 3 is also fun... to laugh at!

The budget is low as shit and the story is, I don't even know what, military scientists are working on a drug and some terrorists steal it, it gets loose and BAM! everybody's a zombie!!! Zombies that run, zombies that really, really like to climb up things and jump off of them, flying head zombies, legless swimming zombies, radio DJ zombies, zombies that like to hide in haystacks, zombies that like to jump out of bushes like an acrobat, zombies that like to hide under piers, zombies that if a hand grenade explodes 50 feet behind them they just fall over dead, zombies that just stand still and never move, zombie birds...every kind of zombie you can think of! It's complete chaos and I have no idea what the story was even going for, but it's goal was to make me laugh then it worked brilliantly.

If you are new to the zombie genre then wait until you've exhausted all of the classics before delving into this one, but if you're looking for a silly zombie film for you and your friends to laugh at then ZOMBI 3 is for you!
This zombie thought far enough ahead to wear knee pads.

Fact: 1 in 3 soldiers is gay.

Kinda hard to see (click on picture for a better look), but that is the extremely rare flying zombie head. It's damn near impossible to find those in the wild.
