Dawn of the Dead (2004) - Synopsis
Sarah Polley, Ving Rhames, Jake Weber and Mekhi Phifer head an ensemble
cast in a re-envisioning of George Romero's apocalyptic horror classic,
Dawn of the Dead. An unexplained plague has decimated the world's
population and yet.the dead things aren't dying. They've become zombies,
stalking endlessly in a constant quest to feed on the flesh and blood of
the few remaining living.
A ragtag group of desperate survivors in a Wisconsin town seek refuge in
a large indoor mall, where they must learn not only to protect
themselves from the ever-increasing zombie horde, but also to co-exist
with each other as a last bastion of humanity. Sealed off from the rest
of what used to be the world, the group uses every available resource
(both within and without) in their against-all-odds fight to remain
alive and human.
Dawn of the Dead is directed by Zack Snyder from an adapted screenplay
by James Gunn; it is produced by Richard P. Rubinstein, Marc Abraham and
