‘Zombi 3‘ is an Italian horror-film directed by Lucio Fulci & Bruno Mattei. Fulchi initially started the film, but then dropped out with illness, so Bruno Mattei took over – and both men got credited.
The film isn’t related to Fulci’s ‘Zombi 2‘, even though it has previously been released under the title ‘Zombie Flesh Eaters 2‘.
The film uses chemicals as the plot device for creating zombies – scientists working on a reanimating serum called ‘Death One’ get attacked and the serum gets stolen. It soon spreads and before long the film is tracing the survival story of a bunch of soldiers who have teamed up with a small group of civilians.
The zombies in ‘Zombi 3’ are aggressive and fast, with many of them climbing and leaping to get to their prey.
The film was only released in Italian cinemas and it went straight to video in all other countries.
