    I bought this from my local dvd shop thinking that it would be a badly shot, terribly written, appallingly acted, gory, cult indie zombie film and thats exactly what it was, just plain awful.

    Another failed attempt by John Russo to destroy Romero's legacy.

    There are some interesting ideas contained in Children of the Living Dead, but its sluggish pace, poor production values and atrocious acting resulted in one of the worst zombie films ever made.

    Apparently a sequel to Night of the Living Dead by the guy who added new scenes to it, yet only the first few minutes actually seem like a sequel. After everybody killed the zombies in one county (besides one) the world seemed to have forgot it ever happened. For some reason the zombie that was left never did anything for years then started a small outbreak again. Even worst is that this zombie makes a horrible screeching sound. This film is no where like the orignal NOTLD and isn't a very good zombie film on it's own. The characters are bad, the time ellipses come out of nowhere, and the dialog was plain awful. It's a disgraceful sequel that takes Romero's zombies into the wrong direction. Plus, who thought it was a good idea that a murderer turned zombie would be more powerful than a regular zombie? There are so many things wrong with this film, but it has it's entertaining moments.

    A complete piece of crap - bad script, bad directing, average FX and the acting is worse than Twilight. Brutal.

    The bottom of the barrel for zombie films. So bad I almost couldn't make it through. The first 10 minutes is passable, then just plummets into the abyss. This one was below even Tom Savini, and I say that with all due respect.
