Based on the filming of the original 1978 Dawn of the Dead as well as the 1985 film Day of the Dead. Dawn was filmed in a shopping mall, however it was located in Pennsylvania. Day of the Dead was filmed in Florida, however the plot unfolds mostly underground. The mission involves Vic replacing a stunt double during several of the film's battle scenes. In each scene, Vic must hold off a zombie horde for a certain amount of time. It is inferred that while Vic is filming, Lance is negotiating a cocaine deal with the director, whom is obviously based on George Romaro.
