Undead is a 2003 Australian zombie horror comedy film written and directed by Michael and Peter Spierig and starring Felicity Mason, Mungo McKay and Rob Jenkins.

Plot

After losing her family farm to debt, local beauty pageant winner Rene (Felicity Mason), decides to leave the small town of Berkeley. Strange meteorites fall to earth nearby, turning the inhabitants into zombies. Rene and some other survivors hide in the home of local gun nut and alien abductee Marion (Mungo McKay), and attempt to survive the plague of undead. Marion has a collection of guns and there is a fallout shelter in his basement, which the group of survivors take refuge in. Marion has not had a chance to stock the shelter with food or water yet.

The group tries to get to the food but encounter the zombies again. It is here that Marion shoots one in the head and discovers it stays down. They abandon the house, which eventually leads them to Marion's garage, which contains his van. They secure the van and flee, only to find a huge barrier surrounding the entire town, which Marion attributes to the aliens that abducted him. He also blames them for the rain that continues to fall at regular intervals, which seems acidic though non-painful, and the group is careful to not let it touch them. As the group understands the virus is airborne, slowly affecting them all, they are confronted by strange glowing hooded figures. One by one, the members of the group are killed or sent up to the cloudy sky by the aliens until only Rene is left. The aliens soon confront her and cover her in the rain chemical, which is actually a cure for the infection. Aliens are there to help cure the town of the zombie plague caused by the meteorite shower and keep it from spreading. Those "abducted" are floating in suspended animation above the clouds to keep them safe. With their job done, the aliens flee, unaware that one of Rene's group, Wayne (Rob Jenkins), presumed dead by Rene, managed to escape the barrier via plane and is still infected when they leave.

The townspeople are rushed to the hospital to treat the injuries inflicted upon them by the survivors while they were zombies. Unfortunately, Wayne transforms into a zombie, first infecting Marion and then spreading the plague once again.

The film ends at Rene's farm where the survivors are staying. The final shot is of the farm with a fenced-in area nearby, containing the zombified residents of Berkeley. Rene stands guard with a quadruple barreled shotgun and a gas mask, waiting for the return of the aliens.
