A nurse, a policeman, a young married couple, a salesman, and other survivors of a worldwide plague that is producing aggressive, flesh-eating zombies, take refuge in a mega Midwestern shopping mall.
Former MTV/MTV2 VJ Iann Robinson has an uncredited cameo as a zombie. When first entering the mall, the group is charged by an Asian man-turned-zombie. The large zombie behind the Asian man is played by Robinson.
Well, Michael, what are you waiting for? Go ahead, kill him. Hey, kill Tucker, too!
Tucker: Wait a minute. I was never bit!
Ana: We can't be sure. Do it, Michael!
There are two massive explosions in the movie, at the beginning while Ana is driving away from her house and at the end when CJ blows up the propane tank, but the environment is obviously not affected by the shock waves. For example, in the beginning the trees do not move; and in the latter, the water remains still.
During the closing credits we see a series of shots filmed by the survivors using a camcorder they find on Steve's boat. There are a couple of scenes of Steve and his girlfriend (still left on the camera), then the survivors finding a small boat with a still-animated zombie head in an icebox, and finally them running out of gas and landing on an island where they are attacked by zombies. There are then a series of brief almost-subliminal flashes of zombies "attacking" the camera.
