Storyline

In 1987 serial murderer and rapist Abbot Hayes disappeared from the morgue. Shortly afterwards, a zombie plague swept his hometown and many lost their lives in the ensuing battle. Now, fourteen years later, the aging residents of the town are trying to erase all traces of their past. But the arrival of a businessman who relocates the bodies of the local cemetery into a mass grave so he can build a car dealership riles up Abbot, who sets out to create his own army of the undead and take over.

Blasphemy to the phrase "Living Dead"
11 August 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tom Savini is a very gifted make-up artist. He is creative, twisted, and a legend in the make-up/SFX world.

How this translates into him being an actor, sliding across car hoods, doing flips, and shooting zombies still mystifies me.

To be honest though, it wouldn't matter who starred in this mess..it would still be a sloppy, amateur cheesefest trying to capitalize on the words Living Dead.

As a huge fan of Savini, I was sooooo let down by this movie that I cant even begin to express my hatred for it. It does everything wrong, ugly, and with no Savini style. Please stay BEHIND the camera Tom....please.

Avoid this like the plague. 1 out of 10
