March 19, 1921 - Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari - Movie - Released in the US

March 19, 2004 - Dawn of the Dead - Movie - Released

A very important early horror film; and yet another zombie movie remake. I have to admit this shopping-mall zombie movie was really fun to watch in the theater, and I've watched it once or twice more on DVD.
