Zombi 3 (1988)

It’s unfortunate that this semi-infamous curiosity is more interesting for its place within this strange Lucio Fulci franchise than for the movie itself. Fulci’s original “Zombie,” which was released as “Zombi 2” as an unofficial Italian sequel to George A. Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead,” spawned “Zombi 3,” which is really “Zombie 2.” It’s all very confusing and peculiar, and has enough of a whiff of disrepute to pique a cult seeker’s interest, but the movie itself is a dud. The story is difficult to follow, the zombie action is pretty tame, and while there are some cool practical effects here and there, there just isn’t enough to keep a viewer going.
