When Dawn of the Dead was released, it had only been ten years since Romero’s breakthrough Night of the Living Dead and zombies hadn’t achieved the cultural importance they enjoy today. To help promote the film, Romero commissioned Lanny Powers to created this now-iconic US 1-sheet. There were actually three versions of this poster produced — the first and rarest is the version with a green-title which was printed in small numbers and used primarily in drive-ins. After gaining steam at the box-office through word of mouth, the red-title poster offered here was printed to meet a wider distribution. Finally, the a slightly different red-title version of the poster was made to sent out with 16mm rentals for special screenings, perhaps at colleges. A bold statement in any room!
