And the series just keeps right on going. This time, we have the richies and the gangsta's together in an experiment in sharing deal. Angela runs down a ghetto girl to get a spot in this roster, taking on the name Maria... and of course, bringing up the kill-count.

We get the priviledge of seeing the news reporter woman score some very nice cocaine from Angela, a decapitation, some burnings, firecracker exploding head, a lawnmower to the face, and even a good ol' fashioned gunshots to the chest. And they even seem to set Angela up as the heroine by killing off the annoying people, makes you kinda cheer her on... moreso than other movie baddies. Good times, indeed.

This installment was much more comical than the first two... part one had almost zero jokes, two was kinda split between comedy and horror, but this one was chock-full of one-liners. I'm not normally a fan of wisecracking villains, but Angela pulled it all off superbly, so no hard feelings against her.

Are you a cheerleader?
Are you a virgin?
"Of course not!"
Have you ever done drugs?
"Who hasn't?"
Strike three. /Angela kills

Storyline was pretty basic, nothing much going for originality; she shows up, kills off quite a few kids, nice little ending sequence, grand finale. However, it stays interesting all the way through, and there's never a dull moment. The kill methods were quite original, and for the most part, the gore effects were nicely done.
