Why it started...where it started - NOT KNOWN.

Whatever happened, however it started, overnight, the world has become a living nightmare of surreal proportions, with the planet's population hit by an inexplicable, unfathomable and lethal plague - and the dead aren't staying dead. Corpses yearning for their next meal are now stalking the few remaining survivors, driven by their insatiable hunger to feed upon the flesh of the living.

After a terrifying escape from her suburban Wisconsin home on the morning after, Ana Clark (Sarah Polley) runs into a small group of the still-living, including: a stoic police officer, Kenneth (Ving Rhames); Michael, an unassuming electronics salesman (Jake Weber); a street-rough Andre (Mekhi Phifer) and his pregnant wife. This ragtag group seeks refuge in a fortress of the late 20th Century - an abandoned, upscale suburban mall.

As the world outside grows more hellish, as the ever-increasing army of decomposing zombies tirelessly strive to infiltrate the mall, the survivors battle the undead, each other and their own fears and suspicions.

Sealed off from the rest of what used to be the world, the mall's inhabitants - now one of the last bastions of humanity - must learn to co-exist with each other and use every available resource in their fight to remain alive, and more importantly, human.

When there is no room in hell, the dead will walk the earth... []

"Gruesome, funny, everything a horror film should be."
