Following the events of Night of the Living Dead (196| 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've 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' best-laid plans and forcing them to fight off both lethal bandits and flesh-eating zombies.
One of the most compelling and entertaining zombie films ever, Dawn of the Dead perfectly blends pure horror and gore with social commentary on material society.
