Raspy and grimacing Jeffrey Combs is more Adam West than Dr. Herbert West as he faces off a cast of Spaniards in this cheapo installment. With hardly any creative humor, gore, or sex, it just staggers like a refrigerated corpse to the stoopid climax. Depressing.
The film is filled with macabre blood effects, but the story feels too much as a reboot at times as the story threads on familiar ground. Rest of cast from two first films are sorely missed as the new additions are not that good, except for a good-looking nurse that is turned into a zombie with human feelings. The moment when a rat starts to fight with a still living severed penis is a sick absurd cinematic moment.
A weak effort to follow up the two previous movies and plays like a pale and cheap imitation. Coombs is kinda fun to watch but the rest of the cast is pretty crummy. The gore is well execucuted and somewhat fun but the jokes are pretty stale. Still it´s an OK time waster if there is nothing else on.
OH HEY WHAT IF WE JUST TAKE HERBERT WEST (what ? dead ? nah he's not!), PUT HIM IN A JAIL AND SEND A NEW APPRENTICE FOR HIM ?! AND THEN, EVERYTHING COULD JUST GO WRONG, PEOPLE GET KILLED AND RESURRECTED ?!
Yeah, well, after all it's not that stupid. According to my friend it's a low budget (3M dollars) and they did well with that ! I enjoyed the "riot-mayhem" part of it, but it's like the others: slow to start.
