Following an ever-growing epidemic of zombies that have risen from the dead, two Philadelphia S.W.A.T. team members, a traffic reporter, and his television executive girlfriend seek refuge in a secluded shopping mall.
There is panic throughout the nation as the dead suddenly come back to life. The film follows a group of characters who barricade themselves in an old farmhouse in an attempt to remain safe from these bloodthirsty, flesh-eating monsters.
Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again. But not everything goes to plan.
Now that zombies have taken over the world, the living have built a walled-in city to keep the dead out. But all's not well where it's most safe, as a revolution plans to overthrow the city leadership, and the zombies are turning into more advanced creatures. Written by
At the beginning of the movie, if you listen carefully to the tuba and tambourine zombies in the town bandstand, they are playing notes from "The Gonk", the mall music from George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead (1978). See more »
The main zombie antagonist, who is seen throughout the movie, carries an AUG assault rifle and fires it repeatedly. However, he cumulatively fires more than the clip can hold and is never seen reloading. See more »

This movie was amazing! I gobbled this movie up like a zombie gobbling down nasty pig intestines like every zombie extra eats! I was so disappointed to see that the studio gave this movie no publicity at all. I only heard about it when I saw a poster of it at a movie theater. Which is strange to say since zombie movies have been popular lately with Shaun of the Dead ( so awesome ) and the dawn of the dead remake ( meh, its enjoyable I guess but a hack remake fo sho) I saw so much commercials and publicity for these movies but why didn't they give credit to Romero, the father of the zombie movie?? Shaun and Dawn remake were appetizers, Land of the Dead should have been the main course but the studios treated it more like a pig in a blanket that rolled under the couch. DISAPPOINTED! The movie itself was amazing, Romero stands by his choices to make the story and concept overshadow big name actors and dialog. Fortunatly, all the actors were very solid and Leguazamo was a shining star in his role. Dennis Hopper was also brilliant. This movie was a perfect evolution to Romero's Night, Day, and Dawn stories. I love the idea that a zombie can start to think.
When everyone else was making millions off of rehashing Romero ideas, Romero actually brought something new to the table, reinventing the genre which he himself started. With so many remakes and new perspective's on zombie, er wait, we're not using the zed word, I mean, walking dead movies, its a shame the studio didn't promote this gem of a movie more. Shame on you! But the good news is zombie movies will never die, everyone loves and fears zombies, the very concept is so grotesque and frightening people cant stay away.
On the bright side Romero is talking about making straight to DVD movies without interference from big studios. I cannot wait.
Long live Bub, Long live Flyboy, and long live Tom Savini
