Review

Our Score
George A Romero continued his Living Dead series here in the most sophisticated, disturbing and horrifying way possible. Scientists in an underground missile base try to find ways of domesticating and controlling the cannibalistic zombie hordes so they can be re-integrated into society. The result is a lean, mean and shocking sequel with gore that's so realistic, it's like being trapped in a slaughterhouse for 100 minutes. Investing the rotting zombies with human touches (they shave and listen to personal stereos) is a stroke of genius on Romero's part, and one that makes his unnervingly bleak world vision a real shock to the system. Shot through with claustrophobic chills and gruelling blood-letting, this heavy nightmare is not for the faint-hearted.

Summary

Military personnel and scientists have been confined to an underground bunker while zombie masses continue to decimate America. They face a race against time to figure out how to stop the undead before their sanctuary is breached. George A Romero's horror sequel, starring Lori Cardille, Terry Alexander, Joseph Pilato and Jarlath Conroy.
