As a small town is accidentally exposed to a biological weapon that turns people into homicidal maniacs, an unprepared U.S Army swoops in to quarantine and control the damage. Mixing elements of his Night of the Living Dead with The Andromeda StrainDr. Strangelove and M*A*S*H, Romero’s breakneck-paced, full-color, bleakly comic sci-fi thriller doubles down on both social commentary and political satire as well as fast-cut editing that was to become his stylistic calling card.
