As zombies overrun the globe, a small group of scientists and military personnel in an underground Florida bunker battle each other over how to deal with the undead menace, in the bleak and brutal final chapter of George A. Romero's original zombie trilogy.
In a grim future long after the early days of Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead, zombies have conquered the earth. A small group of scientists and military personnel have taken shelter in a bunker in Florida, where gruesome experiments are conducted on the undead in a desperate attempt to understand and stop the zombie epidemic. As the labs fill with zombie body parts, the fascistic military contingent grows increasingly frustrated with the scientists' failure to find a solution. As the two groups clash for control of the underground enclave, the zombies from above ground find a way into the bunker, and soon the dwindling survivors must try to outrun the grisly death that is shuffling after them. "As always in Romero's films, the minority characters — a woman, a black, an alcoholic intellectual — provide the only positive contrast to the American nightmare of power lust and compulsive consumption, yet this time the focus is less political than philosophical. Beginning from a position of absolute misanthropy, Romero asks what it means to be human, and the answers are funny, horrifying, and ultimately hopeful" (Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader).
