Two sibliings are visiting their father's grave at a remote cemetary when they are suddenly attacked by blood-thirsty zombies. The brother falls victim to the zombie assault, but the sister escapes, making her way to an old farmhouse, where she and other survivors make their final stand against the on-slaught of zombies overtaking the countryside!  Can mankind hope to survive? This is the cult film that jump-started the whole zombie genre and propelled it to its present-day popularity (as well as numerous  sequels and remakes).
