On a small island off the coast of Delaware, live two families locked in a struggle for power and control over the fate of the undead. The O’Flynns approach the zombie plague with a shoot-to-kill attitude. The Muldoons feel that the zombies should be quarantined and kept “alive,” in hopes that a solution will be discovered. For both families, existence on Plum Island is a nightmarish world where humans are the minority and zombies rule.

Living story becoming dead and then living again. He is the zombies’ father. Zombies are his favorite creatures, which, if possible, would surround him to eat his juicy filmmaker’s brain. Now – we all know that – George A. Romero pities these scary and horrific figures typical of the fantastic cinema. To him, in fact, these figures coming back to walk from dawn to dusk are the denied reason. It is the worst thing that could happen to man.
