Where did the trope of the shrieking zombie come from?

I've seen it so often now, the shriek (almost a high pitched roar) of a zombie. I know this is a modern invention, but is it taken from The Ring? Was it invented in the Left 4 Dead video game? I wondered what started this new trend, be it movie, foreign movie, TV, or video game.
