Land of the Dead (2005)

()

“George A. Romero’s Land of the Dead”

Horror, Sci-Fi, Thriller |

Land of the Dead is a post-apocalyptic horror film written and directed by George A. Romero; the fourth of Romero’s six Living Dead movies, it is preceded by Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead, and succeeded by Diary of the Dead and Survival of the Dead. It was released in 2005, with a budget of $15–19 million, the highest in Romero’s Dead series and has grossed $46 million.

The story of Land of the Dead deals with a zombie assault on Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where a feudal-like government exists. The survivors in the film have fled to the Golden Triangle area of downtown Pittsburgh. The region is protected on two sides by rivers and on the third by an electric barricade that survivors term “the Throat”. Released in North America on June 24, 2005, Land of the Dead received mostly positive reviews from film critics.

Some years after the events in Day of the Dead the remnants of human civilization have reorganized enough to establish outposts across the United States. One such outpost in the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, contains a feudal-like government. Bordered on two sides by rivers and on the third by an electric fence guarded by a militia, the city has become a sanctuary in which its citizens live in relative security. Outside the city’s barriers is a no man’s land of barren countryside and dilapidated suburban towns long deserted by living humans but overrun with legions of walkers. The rich and powerful live in a luxury high-rise called Fiddler’s Green, while the rest of the population subsists in squalor. Paul Kaufman, the city’s ruthless plutocratic ruler, has sponsored Dead Reckoning, an armored personnel vehicle that can travel through the zombie-infested areas with ease.
