Plot Details: This opinion reveals major details about the movie's plot.
Dawn of the Dead, a remake from the 1978 version, was one of the most amazing zombie related movies I've ever seen in my life. Not only did it provide thrills and chills, it also had a pretty decent story. The stars in this 2004 remake are Sarah Polley as Ana, Ving Rhames as Kenneth, Jake Weber as Michael, Mekhi Phifer as Andre, Ty Burrell as Steve, Michael Kelly as CJ, Kevin Zegers as Terry, and Lindy Booth as Nicole. The film starts out at a hospital where Ana is just getting ready to go home from working there as a nurse. A patient was admitted earlier complaining of a bite wound. Ana checks up on his records and goes home. Her husband and her turn off the television when she gets there to go take a shower together, completely missing the news special about zombies taking over the town and to stay indoors with the windows and doors locked. They wake up the next morning to find the neighbor's little girl standing in their doorway with half of her jaw missing. Ana's husband instructs her to call 911 while he rushes to the girl only to be bitten and Ana locks the girl in the hallway and gets no answer from 911 so she tries to care for her husband herself, only she is too late. He is already dead from a bite to the vein in his neck. As Ana sobs, he arises and tries to attack her, however she makes it out the window into her car and down the road where she meets Kenneth and Andre and Michael and they head together to the local mall where they plan on locking themselves in to get away from all the terror outdoors as there are zombies everywhere. Well, I won't ruin the movie for you, but I recommend you go watch it if you have not already! The zombie make up made this movie awesome as the zombies looked real and not like prosthetic dummies. The acting was superb, especially Mekhi Phifer's role, and the story strung along without a single flaw. All in all, a decent horror movie.
