George A. Romero followed up his ground-breaking 1968 film ‘Night of the Living Dead‘ with another modern zombie film that pushed the genre even further – ‘Dawn of the Dead‘
‘Dawn of the Dead‘ was released in 1978 and traced the story of a small band of survivors that seek refuge and safety in a shopping mall when the world is over-taken by zombies.
Eventually the zombies break into the mall, and the subsequent scenes have been used as a statement of social commentary about modern consumer society ever since.
This is a seminal zombie film that further cemented Romero reputation as the ‘father of modern zombie films’.
The film was extremely popular and was released all over the world with various titles and posters.
You can check out some of the posters for ‘Dawn of the Dead‘ below.

This is the original British theatrical poster for the movie from 1979. The artwork for this was also used on a DVD boxset the collected Romero’s first three zombie films (‘Night’, ‘Dawn’, and ‘Day’) together in one release.
This German theatrical poster for the movie is incredible, it’s like a piece of art in its own right and definitely has a 70s feel to the style. Hands down, this is probably our favorite.
