Night of the Living Dead

With Halloween coming up I thought it was a good occasion to remind everyone about the 1968 horror classic “Night of the Living Dead” directed by George A. Romero. It’s the first movie in a series that so far counts six zombie movies. The movie was controversial when first released and continues to be a classic and icon in the zombie genre.

Summarized plot: During a visit to a cemetery the two siblings, Barbra and Johnny, are suddenly attacked by a man. Johnny is killed and Barbra manages to escape. She finds shelter in a nearby farmhouse and soon after a man, Ben, also looking for shelter joins her. It turns out five other persons are hiding in the cellar of the house. Together, despite several differences and opinions, they try working together to survive an ongoing attack from what turns out to be flesh hungering zombies.

More info about the movie can be found in the IMDb listing and Wikipedia entry.

Because the movie was released without a proper copyright notice it has entered the public domain and can freely be distributed by anyone so downloading or streaming this movie from any source is completely legal.

“Night of the Living Dead” can be streamed from YouTube in a decent quality or it can be downloaded from Archive.org, that offers downloads in different formats, including, HD and DVD quality as well as versions ready for PS3, PSP, iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.
