 Dawn of the Dead (1978) on IMDb

Romero’s independently made zombie sequel provides a tongue in cheek attack on the shortcomings of our modern materialistic society by way of hordes of reanimated corpses preying on human flesh. The film follows four Pennsylvanian survivors of the epidemic, caused by an unidentified phenomenon, who barricade themselves inside a suburban shopping mall amid mass hysteria. Combining action, tension, gruesome horror and a surprising amount of humour, Dawn of the Dead manages to move far beyond its low budget, and, thanks to a great cast and clever special effects, is seen as one of the best horror films ever made.
