of The Dead:
Why it started
where it started -- NOT KNOWN.
Whatever happened, however it started, overnight, the world has become a living
nightmare of surreal proportions, with the planets population hit by an
inexplicable, unfathomable and lethal plague -- and the dead arent staying
dead. Corpses yearning for their next meal are now stalking the few remaining
survivors, driven by their insatiable hunger to feed upon the flesh of the living.
After a terrifying escape from her suburban Wisconsin home on the morning after,
Ana Clark (SARAH POLLEY) runs into a small group of the still-living, including:
a stoic police officer, Kenneth (VING RHAMES); Michael, an unassuming electronics
salesman (JAKE WEBER); a street- rough Andre (MEKHI PHIFER) and his pregnant
wife. This ragtag group seeks refuge in a fortress of the late 20th Century
-- an abandoned, upscale suburban mall.
As the world outside grows more hellish, as the ever-increasing army of decomposing
zombies tirelessly strive to infiltrate the mall, the survivors battle the undead,
each other and their own fears and suspicions. Sealed off from the rest of what
used to be the world, the malls inhabitants -- now one of the last bastions
of humanity -- must learn to co-exist with each other and use every available
resource in their fight to remain alive, and more importantly, human.
When there is no room in hell, the dead will walk the earth
