When a small Colorado town is overrun by the flesh hungry dead a small group of survivors try to escape in a last ditch effort to stay alive.
With this movie, all the installments in George A. Romero's original Dead Trilogy have been remade: Night of the Living Dead (1968) as Night of the Living Dead (1990); Dawn of the Dead (1978) as Dawn of the Dead (2004), and Day of the Dead (1985) as this movie (it would later be remade again as Day of the Dead: Bloodline (2017)). This makes it perhaps the only trilogy that has been completely remade, though none of the remakes are related to one another.
Great. A driver without keys and a soldier without bullets. It must be my fucking birthday. What's with you two?
Bud Crain: You know what? It's complicated, okay, pal?
Sarah Bowman: How did you get here?
Doctor Logan: Taxi.
Bud Crain: Great. Well, you're nominated to go out and hail us another one.
When Cross first visits her house, the shadows indicate it's no later than mid-afternoon. But Salazar had just stated that breakfast was in "like, 12 hours".
-** SPOILER ALERT! *** The alternate ending on the DVD has Salazar's character disappearing off screen after opening fire in the Nike missile silo. He screams, fires again, then the horde of zombies appears. The film continues exactly as it did in the theatrical release, until, as they escape in the SUV, they pass a building in the exterior of the missile base. Salazar emerges, screaming that he wasn't bitten, and muttering that everyone expects the black guy to die. He gets into the SUV, and they drive off. At that point, the screaming zombie pops into frame.
