Children of the Living Dead is a 2001 American direct-to-video zombie film written by Karen L. Wolf and directed by Tor Ramsey. Executive produced by John A. Russo, the film serves as a sequel to Night of the Living Dead: 30th Anniversary Edition,[1] a recut version of the original film that Russo produced without the involvement of George A. Romero.

This film is notable only for Tom Savini's appearance as a zombie killer in the beginning and for its near-unanimous poor reviews; the film itself is generally regarded as a bad imitation of the original, though many of the zombie rules are not followed.


Serial murderer and rapist Abbot Hayes disappears from the morgue and becomes the leader of several waves of zombies that attack his home town. Fourteen years after the last zombie attack, a businessman relocates bodies from a local cemetery to pave the way for progress, but sets in motion Abbot's next undead assault.
