A female nurse, Anna, and a black police officer, Kenneth, are caught in the middle of world-wide chaos as flesh-eating zombies begin to take over the world by attacking the living...

"Director Zack Snyder's remake of George A Romero's 1978 zombie horror is an efficient exercise in recycling, right down to the slogan: “When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the Earth.” Romero's original screenplay also acts as the flesh and bones for James Gunn's updated script, in which a group of survivors, including a nurse (Sarah Polley) and a police officer (Ving Rhames), find refuge from a plague of zombies in a shopping precinct. The morbid mob are never far behind though, prompting the pair to make plans to reach an island free from the undead hordes. Like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre before it, this is another gruesome but entertaining big-budget take on a 1970s horror classic. But Snyder's film lacks the satirical edge that gave Romero's original so much more bite." - Radio Times Review
