In South Dakota, the survivors arrives at a warehouse in a nuclear plant and they are warned by a man called Wilbur Grady and his daughter Amelia that the glowing zombies are radioactive and they should neither have physical contact with them nor let their blood splatter on them. Soon they learn that the reactor core will meltdown destroying everything within five hundred kilometers radius. The group decides to team-up with Wilbur and Amelia to fix the reactor, but Wilbur fails and subsequently dies. Now their only chance is to convince the engineer Homer Stubbins, who became a hermit after the loss of his son, to help them to fix the reactor. Will they succeed in their intent?

BS. at it's finest
19 July 2017 | by rickyjo06See all my reviews

OK, So if you're gonna be specific about where they are located, such as saying that they are in the Black Hills of South Dakota, or Edgemont, SD at least don't lie about what is there. Mount Rushmore is located in the Black Hills of South Dakota but it's not near Edgemont, it's in Keystone! And a Nuclear Plant, PLEASE!! Maybe some Gold Mines but a Nuclear Plant. If you had any viewers from the Great State of South Dakota, you may have just lost them. HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!!
