A workable Director's Cut was created which cut down the long dialogue scenes and emphasised the action scenes. However Karen L. Wolf fired everyone in Pittsburgh, hired a new editor and re-cut the film. She reinserted long dialogue scenes and looped even more dialogue without the director, resulting in robotic delivery of many of the lines. See more »
When Deputy Hughes puts the "dead" zombie in the front seat of his car, he's behind the steering wheel, alone. When Hughes shoves the car off and the other cars go after it, however, there's another head visible in the passenger's side, and this is the body the zombies go after. See more »
This is a film that should be shown in film schools as how not to make a movie. It's got really bad "acting," dubbing, direction, editing, cinematography, dialog and I want to say script, but I find it hard to believe they weren't making it up as they went along. There is no logic in the film and although it's supposed to be an unofficial sequel to Night of the Living Dead, it seems most of the people in the film weren't aware that zombies walked the earth at one point.
The lead zombie is a character named "Abbot Hayes" whose sole purpose is to make a most annoying screech that rivals any fingers on a chalkboard. He walks like he's a in a bad '70s blaxploytation film. He has amazing powers and sadly, isn't killed as they were obviously hoping this creature might join the ranks of Freddy, Jason and Chucky in famous monster moviedom. Luckily, the film will be hated by anyone who watches it.
There's a lot to hate about this film, but my favorite thing is in the opening credits, when the actor playing the lead zombie is "Introduced." This is done in a film when an actor is making his film debut. Yet, outside of Tom Savini, this had to be everyone's film debut as there wasn't a real actor in the bunch. Even Savini was pretty bad.
There are camera shadows, poor edits, and talents that rival any high school produced film. I'd like to think that everyone involved in this piece of trash should be banned from making film, but thankfully, since they have no talent whatsoever, I think it goes without saying. The only thing I wished could have happened with this, is a "behind the scenes" short along with the DVD. I would have really loved to see what they were thinking with this garbage. And I would have liked to see George Romero watching this. I have no doubt he wouldn't have made it past the first 15 minutes. It's just that bad.
