The master filmmaker continues to reinvent the modern horror genre with a film that draws new battle lines between the living and the dead.
It's been less than a week since the dead began to walk, and the world has gone to hell. The rule of law is disintegrating. The military is in chaos. A war-weary band of soldiers goes AWOL, convinced they'll be better off on their own. Led by Sarge, a tough, chain-smoking guardsman, their only ambition is to survive. They are lured to a remote island that promises to be the last paradise on earth, only to discover that even here, miles away from civilization, there is no escape from a world at war. The battle that follows overtakes everyone on the island, living and dead, and poses a new meaning for the word, "survival".
Told with Romero's iconic sense of humor and keen eye for the fault-lines in contemporary culture, George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead expands and intensifies the zombie universe for which he is celebrated.
