Dawn of the Dead

Following the events of <a href="/title/tt0063350?ref_=tt_stry_pl">Night of the Living Dead</a> (1968), we follow the exploits of four survivors of the expanding zombie apocalypse as they take refuge in an abandoned shopping mall following a horrific SWAT evacuation of an apartment complex. Taking stock of their surroundings, they arm themselves, lock down the mall, and destroy the zombies inside so they can eke out a living--at least for a while. Tensions begin to build as months go on, and they come to realize that they&#39ve fallen prey to consumerism. Soon afterward, they have even heavier problems to worry about, as a large gang of bikers discovers the mall and invades it, ruining the survivors&#39 best-laid plans and forcing them to fight off both lethal bandits and flesh-eating zombies.
