Bride of Re-Animator (1990) + Return of the Living Dead III (1993)

A deep dive into a lady zombie double bill of Brian Yuzna-directed gore: Bride of Re-Animator (1990) and Return of the Living Dead III (1993).

We're joined by writer and podcaster Becky Darke to dive into two zombies of a very different ilk: Bride of Re-Animator (1990) and Return of the Living Dead III (1993), both directed by Brian Yuzna.

We chat about the homage to Bride of Frankenstein (1935), Herbert West's hubris, the Bride's look and the literal monster mash. In the second part of the episode (0:39:50) we move onto Return of the Living Dead III, talking about Julie and her 'bad girl' look, her teenage death wish, and the way that transformation scene.

Digressions include: early YouTube, Jack Off Jill, Marisa's mom on The O.C., and the heat wave.
