Following an air disaster, a North American lieutenant (Rob Freeman) has to join forces with a local sergeant (David Osei) if he wants to escape alive from an African continent infested with living dead. Hallelujah! Our prayers to Saint Fulci and Saint Romero have been answered and the dead are walking the earth once again... but nice and slowly, according to the rules. Because with The Dead two genre fans, with plenty of behind-the-camera experience, fulfill their childhood dream and pay a serious, sincere tribute to the zombie movies of yesteryear. Amazing settings, a great sense of suspense, bubbling gore and shovelfuls of zombies. Quite an accomplishment.
