Dawn of the dead
This was the first modern zombie film, having nothing to do with voodoo! The earth is being overrun by the living dead.
The military is under siege in an underground facility, which they only leave to get specimens for the scientists to experiment on. Sounds familiar?
Wrong! This movie was made, when GEORGE ROMERO was in his teens.
