(A letter from Brian Yuzna, director of Return of the Living Dead 3)
Long time no talk. What's going on with you? Can you believe it's 1993?! Man, I'm glad the 1980's are over. These are the glory days!!! Dude, did you see the video for "All That She Wants" on MTV? I love that song. Ace of Base are the best.
So dude, did I tell you I'm directing another movie? I guess they loved Bride of Re-Animator cuz I'm directing another sequel - Return of the Living Dead 3. Can you believe it? I'm directing a Return of the Living Dead movie! Remember that time we played that drinking game while watching Return of the Living Dead? You were so wasted.
Yeah, so, this movie is totally different than the first two. It's way more 90's. We're totally focusing on horror and gore. No more sillly talking zombies. I know you loved them but it's time to move on. Sorry man. Teens these days want something much heavier.
Check this out, the plot is totally awesome. The government is trying to create zombie soldiers for the military which would be awesome if it was real. The Colonel in charge of the experiments is a total dick. One night, his son Curt and Curt's girlfriend, Julie, break into the lab and find out that they're making zombies. The Colonel finds out and gets totally pissed. Curt and Julie decide to run away but get into an accident and she is killed. Curt is totally heart broken and decides to sneak Julie to the lab so she can bring her back to life. It's kind of like Pet Cemetery except they use Trioxin 2-4-5 to bring her back to life and she isn't buried anywhere near a pet cemetery.
Curt successfully brings her back to life but she's a total zombie. A totally hot zombie. Julie is played by Mindy Clarke and she is totally hot. She's kind of goth in the movie which I know you'll dig. Anyway, here is where it gets better. She doesn't stumble around and moan or any of that shit. She is basically normal but she has a growing need to eat brains. The guy who wrote the script (John Penney) is a total genius. You know how everyone is getting piercings and stuff? Well, she is able to hold off the urge to eat brains by piercing herself. It's so awesome. She pierces the shit out of herself.
I don't want to spoil the surprise of the rest of the movie but I'm sure you can guess that things go downhill fast. I have included a picture from one of the dailies that I know you'll love...
Alright dude, I better run. We're shooting this sweet scene where the zombies at the government lab get their revenge. It's gonna be sweet.
Don't be a stranger.
