    Reception

    In The Zombie Movie Encyclopedia, Volume 2, Peter Dendle wrote that the film is a low budget ripoff of Re-Animator with minimal changes, such as changing the color of the reagent and giving the antagonist an occasional German accent. Steve Anderson of Film Threat rated the film 1/5 stars and called it a low budget knockoff of Re-Animator. Milos Jovanovic of HorrorTalk rated 3/5 stars and wrote, "Night of the Dead: Leben Tod is not quite Bad Taste or Braindead, but it's a step in that direction, and a good one."
