While it’s essentially just a remake of George A. Romero’s old film which was released in 1978 starring the very famous Ving Rhames, Sarah Polley, Jake Weber and Mekhi Phifer, the directors have done a way better job this time around. The story revolves around how the city gets filled with people that turn into flesh eating zombies. The survivors in the city are terrified and the story gets more thrilling when the remaining survivors seek refuge in a mega mall in the Midwestern area.
