Dawn of the Dead (2-Sep-1978)

Director: George Romero

Writer: George Romero

Keywords: Horror, Zombie, Cannibalism

Zombie apocalypse sweeps America; a traffic reporter, his girlfriend, and two SWAT team member barricade themselves in an abandoned suburban shopping mall as events unfold. The makeup on the zombies is terrible, the acting sometimes not so good, but it is still a magnificent zombie film. Sequel to the legendary Night of the Living Dead (1968), taking place several weeks afterwards.
