29. ‘Night of the Living Dead’ (Remake, 1990)
This is the first remake of the classic, directed by gore effects maestro Tom Savini (probably best known as playing the role of Sex Machine in “From Dusk Till Dawn”). While this film stays true to the original script through much of the film, it does not stand up to the original. But given that the original is one of the all-time greats, this remake is still a solid zombie film when judged on it’s own merits. The changes in character and plot along the way lead to an entertaining twist in the ending. Plus, you get to see Tony Todd killing zombies in his pre-”Candyman” days.
