I'm not sure where all of the hate comes from... the film currently has 0% on Rotten Tomatoes. Is it as good as Return of the Living Dead? No. Is it as bad as the other sequels? Also no. The effects are pretty good, the score and soundtrack are sufficiently 80s. It's a bit watered down and feels like a PG-13, but that's ok. All in all, a fun horror comedy.
Wow, what a powerful film. A horror film, but not of the supernatural but of the spiritual. A film full of debauchery, treachery and moral repugnance. A film, quite frankly, that speaks to the souls of mankind and of society. The connections you could make between what was on screen and modern times was striking and nauseating. This film will stay with me for some time.
