Plot Synopsis:

'When there’s no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth.’

With the U.S. in the grip of a zombie apocalypse, four desperate survivors find refuge in a shopping mall. But the flesh-eating hordes, still possessed by an instinctive desire to consume, are drawn to the same destination. What follows is a nail-biting fight for survival.

George A Romero’s Dawn of the Dead remains one of the greatest horror films ever made, often imitated but never equaled, and is now presented in a brand new restoration.
