"When there is no more room in hell, the dead will walk the Earth"
Haunting words from the old 1978 movie. The movie starts out as a normal day for Ana who is a nurse. She goes home to her husband, they do "things" (and by things I mean naked things. KIDS MUST LEAVE THE ROOM PLEASE!), and her day pretty much ends that way. No way of knowing there are zombies around. Then suddenly its morning and her hubby wakes up to see the neighbors little girl standing in the hallway. Not knowing how she got there and what was really wrong with her, he saw her wounds and ran to her to see whether or not she was alright. Of course, like any other flesh hungry, she bites
him in the jugular vein and he dies soon afterwards. He then reawakens as a
zombie and Ana runs to the bathroom, jumps out the window, and the story
pretty much gets more interesting from there.

She later meets up with police officer named Kenneth and from there
they meet up with other survivors who are headed to the mall for refuge
where they met up with even more survivors.

I actually thought there wasn't any movie scary and gory enough to even
make me cringe but this one actually made me grip my pillow. First of all,
the zombies run. Imagine being chased by something that doesn't bother
slowing down since leg cramps aren't a problem. That's pretty scary. Second of
all, the gory parts were actually thought out. There were chicks getting
ruined by chainsaws and zombies getting impaled. Sure, this was a remake of
Romero's Dawn of the Dead but its entirely different (kudos to Romero
for thinking it up in the first place =D).

This is a movie for all you blood thirsty, gore-lovers since there is a
heck of a lot of it. And for those of you who decide to buy or rent it, be
sure to watch the credits (you're missing a lot if you do) and the bonus
