Land of the Dead

In this installment of the Zombie films, zombies have taken over most of the world and the number of living humans is dwindling. Society has adapted to this change and a great number of people reside in Fiddler’s Green one of the few remaining cities not populated by zombies. Kaufman (Dennis Hopper) the founder of this great city has separated the people into two classes. The upper class living fancy lives, and the lower class left to fend for themselves on the streets. Supplies are brought into the town by a team of mercenaries lead by Riley (Simon Baker) and Cholo (John Leguizamo). Cholo does all of Kaufman’s dirty work in hopes to gain a nice home in Fiddler’s Green, but Kaufman decides to have him killed of instead. Severely pissed off from being double crossed Cholo steals the Dead Reckoning – a seriously modified truck armed to the gills, and threatens to blow up the city. Since Riley designed the Dead Reckoning, Kaufman recruits him to get it back. Meanwhile the zombies decide to attack the city and they have learned to use various tools along the way. Will Riley get the Dead Reckoning back in time to save Fiddler’s Green, or will Cholo blow the city to hell and let the zombies devour the citizens of Fiddler’s green?
