The dead rise and stupid humans are still stuck fighting over money and power in George A. Romero’s LAND OF THE DEAD.
Years after the undead dominated the planet in Romero’s Day of the Dead, humanity still thrives in the heart of Pennsylvania… Sort of. Protected by rivers and an electrified fence, the remains of Pittsburgh now exists as a rigid feudal society. Orchestrated by evil haircut-and-a-suit Dennis Hopper, the poor live on the streets in squalor, enjoying zombie pit fights and scavenged food, while the wealthy live a relatively normal life of luxury in a plush high rise. To supply the city, a vigilante group pilots a tricked out, zombie bashin’ bus out into the Pennsylvania wilderness, where they start to notice that the zombies aren’t acting quite as stupid as usual. With the smarty-pants zombies closing in, an all out class war breaks out in the city as factions tear their sanctuary apart in a hopeless fight over cash, comfort and survival.
