As seen in the trailer for ““There are also zombie animals and there are three types of undead: the shamblers or crawlers, the alphas who are organized and stronger, and the original, who creates the latter.

While Marianne fails to start the helicopter, Ludwig manages to open the vault and Kate sneaks off to look for Geeta, Zeus discovers the bride’s body and seeing that he also lost the zombie baby he was expecting, he sends his army to kill everyone. .

The first to die is Maria, the next is Ludwing, who sacrifices himself to save Vanderohe and locks him in the casino vault. On the run, Guzmán is bitten by zombies, so he detonates a bomb. Even Martin is hit by the zombie tiger.

When the survivors reach the rooftop they are hit by Zeus, but the Coyote stops him using the head he stole from Martin. The original zombie kills Lily, who destroys the Queen’s head. Meanwhile, Marianne and Scott get into the helicopter and go for Kate.

After that emotional outcome, it is revealed that Vanderohe manages to survive the nuclear explosion, due to being in the safe. He leaves the city and uses Tanaka’s money to charter a private plane to Mexico City.

However, it is not all good news, Vanderohe begins to feel dizzy during the flight and when he goes to the bathroom he discovers that a zombie bit him at some point, that is, it does not take long to turn and attack the entire city.

If Zeus is the original zombie Vanderohe will become an alpha, otherwise he will become a crawler. So most likely “The army of the deadHave a sequel.
