Stephen is bitten and changed into a zombie. Peter shoots him in the head.
In the end the bikers all break into the mall letting thousands of the living dead in. A bloodbath ensures.
Peter and a pregnant Francine escape via their helicopter on the roof. They fly off, low on fuel and seemingly nowhere safe to go.
Trivia: Despite popular belief to the contrary, the bright-red "pastel" look of the blood effects in the film was an intentional decision by director George A. Romero. He wanted the film to have a slight "Comic-Book Aesthetic", and thus chose an extremely bright hue of fake-blood in order to better contrast with the muted-gray look of the zombies.
