Legion of the Night (1995)
Nomination Year: 2005
SYNOPSIS: A scientist and his assistant discover a way to reanimate dead tissue, and are blackmailed by a Mob boss into using these cybernetic zombie assassins (CZAs) to commit crimes.
At one point they resist, and the scientist is killed (his assistant merely wounded). The scientist's son then comes into the picture [literally], and after being killed, he is transformed into a CZA to hunt down and destroy both the Mob boss and the remaining CZAs under his control.
