Zombi 3 (1988)
95 min.
Directed by Lucio Fulci & Bruno Mattei.
With Deran Sarafian, Beatrice Ring, Ottaviano Dell'Acqua, Massimo Vanni, Ulli Reinthaler, Marina Loi, Deborah Bergamini, Luciano Pigozzi.
Lucio Fulci and Bruno Mattei share the director's chair in this installment to the Zombie series.

A sample of a bacterial compound called Death One is stolen by a group of terrorists who inadvertently expose the deadly virus.

When the toxin manages to get airborne (via birds), the general populace turns into the walking dead.

Rather underappreciated Fulci effort, this is no Zombie, but still it has some good moments going for it, including a disembodied head flying from a freezer and a nice 'zombie hand' birth from a pregnant woman.

Also known as Zombie Flesh Eaters 2.

Italian living dead completists can follow this with Zombie 4: After Death directed by Claudio Fragasso the same year.

Not to be confused with Andrea Bianchi's Le notti del terrore (1980) which is sometimes aka Zombie 3.
