The 1990 reference book "Uranian Worlds: A Guide to Alternative Sexuality in Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror" by Eric Garber and Lyn Paleo lists "Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things" as one of the first horror movies to show positive (though stereotyped) gay male characters who also have an important role in the story. With the help of these two gay men (actors Roy Engleman and Robert Philip) made-up as corpses, Alan plays a practical joke on the other characters that frightens them so badly that one wets his pants.

ohh, the simple pleasures ...food...drink...ladies....ZOMBIES!!!
This movie I have to admit is one of my most cherished guilty pleasures. The whole movie makes me smile and shiver. The first half of the film is light, and funny but there is something beneath it that creeps and crawls.
From the opening there is something that is unsettling, the atmosphere. All of the actors are very entertaining, and at times provide well done overacted performances. As the movie draws towards it's climax, it explodes and is creepy to the max. The whole mood changes. Very rarely do you get to see a movie do an about face on it's audience so well. Low budget heaven, this is how to make a good movie on little.
