Alternate titles : The Never Dead Part 3, Das Bose 3.

Tagline : "Terrifying, Relentless, Unstoppable..."

Phantasm 3 : Lord of the DeadPicking up after where part 2 left off, we see the Tall Man (Angus Scrimm again), having sort-of survived, capturing Mike (now played by the original actor A Michael Baldwin) and taking off with him back to his own dimension.

Loading up with his favourite 4-barreled shotgun, Reggie (Reggie Bannister again) sets out to try and track them down. As usual though, help is at hand from an unlikely source. It turns out that Mike's older brother Jody (Bill Thornbury reprising his role from Part 1) isn't as dead as we first thought, and his spirit is currently occupying one of the Tall Man's flying spheres.

Guided by the sphere, Reggie finds a couple of allies along the way. A sharp shooting 10 year old named Timmy (Kevin Conners), whose parents where victims of the Tall Man, and an ex-army girl named Rocky (Gloria Lynne Henry), and together they do battle with more killer zombie dwarfs, masked grave robbers and killer spheres as they attempt to rescue Mike from the Tall Man's realm, and put an end to his current operation.

Again, another thoroughly enjoyable film with plenty of action and dark humour to keep fans of the series happy. I particularly found the 3 looters hilariously funny, who even after being killed continued to chase Reggie and co around in their pink hearse after the Tall Man brought them back as zombies. It was also good to see the entire original cast re-united, even though it was a bit weird seeing A Michael Baldwin playing Mike again (having been played by James LeGross in part 2).

Well worth seeing!

Overall Marks : 6/10.
