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

This film marks the first time that a character from a previous Living Dead film returns to star in a sequel, with 'Alan van Sprang' as Sarge "Nicotine" Crockett having been seen in Diary of the Dead, and also playing Brubaker in Land of the Dead. The only two other times this has come close to happening was Tom Savini reprising his role of Blades from Dawn of the Dead as a cameo in Land of the Dead in zombie form, and Joseph Pilato playing an unnamed police captain in Dawn of the Dead returning to play Captain Rhodes in Day of the Dead.

At one point Sarge Crockett smashes out one of the windows in the armored truck with the butt of a rifle. In reality, that is impossible since the polycarbonate "bullet-resistant" windows would not be penetrated even by a bullet, much less the blunt plastic butt of a rifle. 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.

I did not like this movie.....at all. I did not like Diary and Land was...well okay. I think the thing that disappoints me the most is that the original trilogy is so good. Now as I already said, I did not like Diary. So considering that this was a technically constituted as a continuation ruined it for me from the start. I think the biggest problem with this film is it lacks (just like the other two) the one thing that made George's original 3 so creepy....an impending sense of doom. To sum it up, you always knew that the characters (in the original trio) were f#@ked some way or another. Forget the social commentaries and forget the plot. That is what made his original trio scary. Okay I know this film has some bad CGI, bad acting, plot holes, crappy music, etc. etc. But when you think about it, his original 3 kind of did too. It was the atmosphere that made it creepy and unsettling. This film has no atmosphere.
This is the type of movie I would have on just to have on. Everything felt forced and thrown together. I think George is just making movies to make movies now. I think he is experimenting with new techniques and loosing some good fans (the most hardcore ones) along the way. Sorry George but I've lost all respect for you as a film maker.
