Zombie master George A. Romero makes his first appearance on the list. The 1985 release of this zombie classic is one of the most copied movies in the zombie genre to this day.

Flesh-eating zombies have completely swarmed the Earth. Day of the Dead follows what is left of the human race and its’ government, in their failing efforts to survive. This movie is timeless due to its strong storyline and directing from none other than Romero himself.

This film is actually the third film in the series that followed Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead. Romero’s masterpiece isn’t all about zombies eating humans; the element of humans working together with time running out is what truly propels this cult classic.
