The master of horror returns to the kind
of filmmaking he pioneered and the genre he invented. In his
first independent zombie film in over twenty years, George
A. Romero takes us back to ground zero in the history of the
Jason Creed and a small crew of college filmmakers are in
the Pennsylvania woods making a no-budget horror film when
they hear the terrifying news that the dead have started
returning to life.
Led by Jason's girlfriend, Debra, the frightened young
filmmakers set off in a friend's old Winnebago to try to get
back to the only safety and security they know: their homes.
But there is no escape from the crisis, nor any real home
for them anymore. Everything they depend upon, all that they
hold dear, is fractured as the plague of the living dead
begins to spread.
Jason documents the true-life horrors in a tense,
first-person style that heightens the reality of each
encounter. Even as his friends die, even as they are
attacked by ravenous walking corpses at every stop along the
way, Jason keeps filming, an obsessive, unflinching eye in
the midst of chaos.
The government first denies, then promises to quell the
crisis, but can’t. Technology fails. Communication with the
rest of the world becomes impossible. Jason and what remains
of his crew end up on their own, a handful of lucky
survivors, reliant on no one but themselves to stay alive.
They take final refuge in a fortress of a mansion, but their
sanctuary turns out to be a trap from which there is no
escape. Throughout it all, the cameras keep rolling,
recording every detail for future generations…if any
