The zombie on the dawn of horizon will forever remain one of the most iconic horror images of all time, as well as one of the greatest poster designs ever. It's almost too simple, but it remains genius in it's execution. Extra bonus points for using that killer line of dialogue as a tagline. And I also love that little bit down the bottom that says "There is no explicit sex in this picture. However, there are scenes of violence which may be considered shocking. No one under 17 will be admitted."
