Children of the Living Dead(2001)
Rating out of 5 possible lobsters :
Well the box looked promising and it does star Tom Savini(well sort of) but believe me Children of the Living Dead is far from good!
I don't know where to start. This movie had more bad horror movie cliches and awful acting then I have ever
seen in my life! It's rare that you come across something so bad that you wonder how anyone could read the script and decide to actually fund the making of the movie.
It all begins 14 years in the past, Hughes, played by Savini, is part of a law enforcement team that is blowing the
sweet fuck out of tons of young teenage zombies. After saving some children from a home belonging to a
zombie character named Abbott Hayes, Hughes is killed(so much for Savini being in the movie!) and the movie
jumps 14 years years ahead. Now we have a van full of teenagers on their way to the area and of course they
all start talking about the area being cursed by Abbott Hayes and the how he turns children into zombies. Hayes
ends up causing the van to crash and all the teens die. And yes, incase you are wondering, they all end up to be
his bitch teen zombies to do his bidding! Ok, so now the movie jumps one more year in the future and we have
this geek who is opening a car dealership on the graveyard and is moving all the bodies from one area to
another to make room. It's not long before the workers realize that some of the coffins are empty and others
contain people who were half dead and then burried alive by Abbott Hayes himself. *The movie was so shitty at
this point I started to black out and probably can't even tell what exactly happened but i'll try* The geek guy
who is opening the dealership meets a girl at a local diner and it turns out she was one of the children saved by
Hughes in the beginning from Haye's house. So anyway... the children from the van are now all zombies and
they start to attack everyone in the movie for some reason or another. This goes on for awhile and then the
movie ends showing that Abbott Hughes is still alive so watch out for a straight to video sequel sometime in the future!
First off this movie DOES NOT star Tom Savini! He's in it for 10 minutes and all he does is blow zombie's
heads off with every sort of gun you can imagine. Don't believe the movie box! Secondly, the acting, story,
plot...etc are NOT any good at all! The movie has more holes then Samantha Fox's 80s nylons! This movie is
so awful I wouldn't recommend that anyone check it out. The first 10 minutes with Tom Savini are ok but not
enough to make the rest of the flick any good. The gore is the only bright spot in the whole movie. Which
reminds me, for anyone that has seen this or plans on seeing it... what is up with Abbott Hayes? He is the worst
looking zombie I have seen since laying eyes on that movie Zombie Lake where all the zombies did was wear
green paint. Abbott Hayes has these zombie hands that look like that monster hands you buy at Walmart for
Halloween that are always 10 sizes too big! Also, his face looked like a rip off of Ash's zombie face from Evil Dead 2! AWFUL!
"Sweet Jesus! What the fuck is up with Children of the Living Dead?!?!?!?"
