Children of the Living Dead (2001)

Children of the Living Dead (2001, USA) C-90m. * D: Tor Ramsey. Starring Tom Savini, Marty Schiff, Damien Luvara, Jamie McCoy, Sam Nicotero, Heidi Hinzman. What starts out as an action-filled homage (or redo) of George Romero's zombie epic, looses its footing when it tries to introduce plot about a zombie leader, who even turns the dead into undead. After nice intro with Savini as the cool zombie killer, film disintegrates, suffering most from inept acting. The zombie effects are first-rate, though. Interestingly, executive producer John A. Russo cowrote the original NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968), and cinematographer Bill Hinzman also photographed that classic.
