Town of the Dead is a 2008 American zombie movie.


While on a cross-country road trip, five college girls stop to spend the night in a small Missouri town and when they awaken, they discover that a zombie outbreak has broken out. Teaming up with other survivors, the girls discover that they are completely cut off from the outside world and must deal with not only the zombies, but a psychotic, mentally unstable minister, his equally demented wife, and their followers who believe that this is the End of Days and that human sacrifices must be made to the zombies.
