Storyline

A brilliant scientist experiments with dead tissue regeneration, leading to organized crime making use of the creations as Ultimate Killing Machines! The doctor is blackmailed into creating "Cybernetic Zombie Assassins" (C.Z.A.'s) to carry out mob hits on rival gangsters. The scientist is killed when one of the hits goes wrong. The scientist's assistant then teams up with the doctor's son, and they send the C.Z.A.'s on a mission of revenge against the mob boss. A glitch, however, causes the monsters to go on a killing rampage throughout the city. The son is forced to go after the C.Z.A.'s, and he is nearly killed. He then decides, if you can't beat them, join them! He is brought back as a C.Z.A. to face off against the remaining zombies - leading to a showdown between "the ultimate killing machines"!

Fresh and darkly original zombie action film
22 June 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dr. Bloom (Bill Hinzman, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD) conducts experiments in dead tissue regeneration and cybernetic implants on the bodies of fallen soldiers. With the help of his assistant, Russell (Ron Asheton, of punk rock band THE STOOGES), they succeed in creating the ultimate killing machines: cybernetic zombie assassins (CZA's for short). Unfortunately, their government funding is cut off and they must turn to Detroit Mob Boss Francis Vansemie' (Jeff Rector, STAR TREK: TNG, NYPD BLUE). Vansemie' (pronounced Van-SEM-ee-ay) cheerfully agrees to finance the Doctor's experiments and allows them to repay the loan by using the CZA's to "rub out" his competition! The Doctor agrees, as he needs to field test his undead troops anyway. Unfortunately, once Vansemie's competition is gone, the brutal mobster decides to eradicate all traces of the doctor and his CZA prototypes. Unknown to Vansemie', Russell survives and contacts the doctor's son Taylor (Tim Lovelace, MOSQUITO). Together, they team up to avenge the doctor's death by bringing the CZA's back "online." The undead assassins perform their job with expert perfection, but then break from their programming and go on a berserk killing spree! Taylor feels responsible and tries to hunt the rogue zombies down, but the creatures are too deadly and he is mortally wounded. Dragging himself back to the lab, Taylor pleads with Russell to transform him into a "Super CZA." Russell reluctantly agrees and Taylor is reborn. He hunts the monsters down and manages to destroy all but one. Returning to the lab, he discovers Russell has been kidnapped, his supply of life-giving serum (needed to power his undead body) has been stolen and Vansemie' still lives! Apparently, the evil crimelord had stolen the doctor's notes and had his own team of (mad) scientists working on perfecting the process. Vansemie' is now a CZA and plots to take over the underworld with his unstopppable CZA army, his "legion of the night." Taylor and Vansemie' battle to the death while the sole remaining CZA attempts to escape with the last dose of the doctor's life-sustaining serum... This is an ambitious production that injects a fresh twist to the zombie genre. The CZA's themselves are extremely impressive, loaded with bizarre high-tech weapons like exploding throwing stars, spinning sawblades and "Wolverine" style spring blade battle claws! If you like dramatic sci-fi/action/horror, then LEGION OF THE NIGHT may be just what the "doctor" ordered!
