Dawn of the Dead (also known as Zombi) is a 1978 American independent zombie horror film directed by George A. Romero. It was written by Romero in collaboration with the Italian filmmaker Dario Argento and produced by Richard P. Rubinstein. It was the second film made in Romero's Living Dead series and shows in a larger scale the apocalyptic effects on society, though it contains no characters or settings from Night of the Living Dead.
