This is the kind of film that gives horror movies a bad reputation. It is sexual but not eroticizing, filled with self-referential inside jokes that don’t make you laugh, and it’s never scary. You can’t polish a turd. You can either step in it or make more of it. This sequel rehashes old gags that weren’t funny the first time around. Indeed, you might want to skip this one...
After a recap of the two previous films, we pick up right after the events of Part 2. The main protagonist from Part 2 returns, still wearing a tank top, and he narrates ninety percent of what happens on screen to make sure the writers and directors don’t have to worry about dialogue. The timeline is so convoluted and illogical that his voice blends with the ambient cacophony.
Once again, the creators seem to write the story and its characters around cheap props then can find at the dollar store and in thrift shops. The only good thing about Class of Nuke 'Em High 3 is its filming locations. Most of the action takes place in and around a nuclear plant, making things more interesting than they really are. Beware; this is one of the worst movies ever made.
