A cop chases two hippies suspected of a series of Manson family-like murders; unbeknownst to him, the real culprits are the living dead, brought to life with a thirst for human flesh by chemical pesticides being used by area farmers.
In the Plum Island, off the coast of Delaware, the long feud between the families of the patriarchs Captain Patrick O'Flynn (Kenneth Welsh) that intends to eliminate the zombies and Seamus Muldoon (Richard Fitzpatrick) that intends to keep his undead relatives waiting for a cure culminates with O'Flynn expelled from Plum. Meanwhile in the continent Sarge "Nicotine" Crocket (Alan Van Sprang), Chuck (Joris Jarsky), Cisco (Stefano DiMatteo) and Tomboy (Athena Karkanis) are plundering and seeking a safe place to stay. When they rescue the young Boy (Devon Bostick) from group of sadistic hunters, Boy decides to join the group and suggests them to head to Plum Island since he had heard a O'Flynn's broadcast inviting people to move to the island. When Sarge and his team arrive in the island, they are attacked by Muldoon's men and they see that the place is crowded of undead. Sarge's friend Chuck is killed and they decide to fight against Muldoon. Written by

In the back of the armoured car when the boy shows the soldiers the video on his iPhone the cellular carrier name on the screen says "Rogers" which is a Canadian company. The movie was filmed in the Toronto area but the story at that point takes place in Pennsylvania where AT&T would have been the cellular carrier for the iPhone. See more »
Sarge 'Nicotine' Crocket:
Last time anyone counted, fifty-three million people were dying every year, a hundred-fifty thousand every day, a hundred and seven every minute, and that was in normal times.

This movie was stunning! Not only does it have a kick ass guy from the army in it, but it brings back the slow... fun.. and bone shredding undead. It's about damn time Romero returns to the zombie scene and he couldn't have done it any better! Sure, The plot may be iffy in this movie and some scenes could have used more acting, but come on people, it's a zombie movie! LOVE IT! The characters are easy to remember. Their stories are fast to love. Not only is this movie enjoyable but it's one you'll re-watch, i sure did. Sadly on IMDb i watched the rating drop from 7.2 to 5.9, horribly undeserved and it should have stayed at 7.2. But alas by the end you'll be cheering for more. I'd recommend this movie for anyone that misses our little zombie friends. Long live Romero.
