Renowned cult horror filmmaker George A Romero continues to reinvent the genre he created with a film that draws new battle lines between the living and the dead.
Rogue soldier Sarge 'Nicotine' Crocket (Alan Van Sprang - DIARY OF THE DEAD, LAND OF THE DEAD) leads a band of military dropouts to seek refuge from the endless chaos of the zombie uprising on remote Plum Island. Patriarch Patrick O’Flynn (Kenneth Welsh - THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE) and his family believe the only good zombie is a (truly) dead zombie, whilst rival clan the Muldoons believe in chaining up the un-dead until a cure can be found. But there is no cure for death, and the consequences of the feud are bloody.
Caught in the middle, Sarge is drawn to Janet (Kathleen Monroe), Patrick’s daughter, who tries to make peace between the two warring factions. But when Sarge’s best friend is killed any hope of a truce is lost. The ensuing battle that follows overtakes everyone on the island, living and dead.
Romero has crafted a sharp subversion of the classic Western, and continued to raise societal issues while devising new and ingenious ways to exterminate flesh-eaters! So who are you going to side with, The Living or The Dead?
