Survival of the Dead

Synopsis: In the Plum Island, off the coast of Delaware, the long feud between the families of the patriarchs Captain Patrick O'Flynn (Kenneth Welsh) that intends to eliminate the zombies and Seamus Muldoon (Richard Fitzpatrick) that intends to keep his undead relatives waiting for a cure culminates with O'Flynn expelled from Plum. Meanwhile in the continent Sarge "Nicotine" Crocket (Alan Van Sprang), Chuck (Joris Jarsky), Cisco (Stefano DiMatteo) and Tomboy (Athena Karkanis) are plundering and seeking a safe place to stay. When they rescue the young Boy (Devon Bostick) from group of sadistic hunters, Boy decides to join the group and suggests them to head to Plum Island since he had heard a O'Flynn's broadcast inviting people to move to the island. When Sarge and his team arrive in the island, they are attacked by Muldoon's men and they see that the place is crowded of undead. Sarge's friend Chuck is killed and they decide to fight against Muldoon.

Is the boy all

right Matthew or not?

I believe whatever you tell me.

- He's ah ...

- Maybe I should go upstairs

and look for myself.

Don't you go up there.

Beth, I have to do this.

You don't have to do this

you enjoy doing it.

No, I promise you that

I don't want to go upstairs.

I don't want to see

what your boys become.

He ain't become nothing.

He is still just and only my boy.

Don't do it Beth!


Oh, my God.

You damn stupid fool.

You might have stopped this.

- How?

- By telling me the truth.

What you wanna do with her now?

Take her upstairs and put her to bed?

No, I'll do what I have to do.

If you'll just give me the means.

It's both of them.

I'll do it, I will

But I'd give my soul if someone

will step up and do it for me.

No ones going to help you.

Not this time, not children.

There's been enough

killing for one day

You boys must not have heard me.

I said there's

been enough killing.

You have us out numbered the way

the Muldoons have outnumbered the

O'Flynns from the beginning

Now, listen to me Seamus.

Plum's always been a safe place

where a man can

live a pride for life.

We can keep it that way

but only if we do

what we have to do.

Killing our own kind like

they didn't belong to us.

Putting the dead to sleep,

before they put

all of us to sleep.

I have faith.

The day of Judgement will forgive

me and prove me right.

You're are wrong, Muldoon.

What are you going

to do with them?

Their Muldoons

that's why we need to save them.

You can't save a person

who is already dead.

Maybe theyre not dead.

Maybe they got some kind

of sickness or something.

Somebody's gonna find

a cure for this.

It might take 100 years

but somebody's going to find a cure.

The only families who ever lived on

this island were yours and mine.

George A. Romero

George Andrew Romero (February 4, 1940 – July 16, 2017) was an American-Canadian filmmaker, writer and editor, best known for his series of gruesome and satirical horror films about an imagined zombie apocalypse, beginning with Night of the Living Dead (1968), which is often considered a progenitor of the fictional zombie of modern culture.

Aside from this series, his works include The Crazies (1973), Martin (1978), Creepshow (1982), Monkey Shines (1988), The Dark Half (1993) and Bruiser (2000). He also created and executive-produced the 1983–88 television series Tales from the Darkside. Romero is often noted as an influential pioneer of the horror-film genre, and has been called an "icon" and the "Father of the Zombie Film". more…
