According to director Tor Ramsey, he was pressured a lot during the filming by Karen L. Wolf and John A. Russo, who made him use their friends as the film crew even though Ramsey wanted to hire other people. After screening the Directors Cut of the film, Wolf took the film away from Ramsey, hired a new editor and even looped many lines to correct the plot holes of the new cut. See more »
When Hughes fights the zombie by his car (just before blowing it up), he throws the zombie to the ground and shoots him multiple times. The slide on the semi-automatic handgun he is shooting locks to the rear, indicating it is empty yet he rolls onto the hood of his car and fires at several more zombies in the field. See more »
From Children of the Living Dead, I have obtained more hours of enjoyment than watching any other movie. I can watch this film numerous times, laugh at how hilariously bad it is and still find something new each time. For instance, when we get a brief glimpse inside the construction site building, why is there gang graffiti on the walls? Or, if you watch the very beginning when Savini and the sheriff are walking towards the house, you can see something from the sheriff's belt make a big shine reflection on the house. Thank you, John Russo and all your cronies for pumping out good quality garbage like this. The bad dubbing, the horrible acting, the horrible script....Oh, and that brings up the end credits. I love how in the end credits, that there is a separate credit for "Abbott Hayes is an original character by" and then they give the screen writer's name. I guess the writer was afraid that people would think that someone else came up with the idea of the great zombie villain Abbott Hayes, or maybe they were afraid that someone would rip him off and that he would become as big as Jason or Freddy Kreugar. Oh, a fun drinking game to play is to take a drink for every time you see someone with the last name "Hinzman" in the end credits. You'll die of alcohol poisoning by the time they stop rolling.
