The creatures put the manor under siege while they protect themselves trying to survive to the horde of zombies. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Excellent Flick! The Best Zombie EVER made!
31 October 1998 | by (Las Vegas, NV) – See all my reviews

From a long-time Romero fan. This surpasses Night of the Living Dead. Perhaps the best Zombie flick ever made.
