It's been less than a week since the dead began to walk, and the world has gone to hell. The rule of law is disintegrating. The military is in chaos. A war-weary band of soldiers goes AWOL, convinced they'll be better off on their own. Led by Sarge, a tough, chain-smoking guardsman, their only ambition is to survive. They are lured to a remote island that promises to be the last paradise on earth, only to discover that even here, miles away from civilization, there is no escape from a world at war. The battle follows overtakes everyone on the island, living and dead, and poses a new meaning for the word, "survival".
Romero back to his best.

After the fairly average 'Land Of The Dead' and awful 'Dairy Of The Dead' I had pretty much written off George A. Romero as a director who was out of ideas and just rehashing his old movies. 'Survival Of The Dead' is though is a real return to form for Romero and a surprising good film to boot. The storyline is simple and well paced, with good characters and a nice balance of drama and gore. Overall, this is a genuinely enjoyable horror film which shows Romero back at his best.
