Night of the Living Dead


Over the weekend, I turned my hand to live tweeting a film from the 1001. After a poll, George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead (1968) was the film to get the live tweet treatment. This is how it turned out.

As I mentioned during the review, the film is in the Public Domain, so you can check it out right here:

  1. Your tweets are more entertaining than the film! HA!
    My favorite Zombie film will always be Shaun of the Dead. I love dark comedies.

    1. Thanks for commenting. I still haven’t gotten around to seeing Shaun of the Dead shamefully.

      1. Well, you better rectify that discrepancy and fast! 😉

      2. Will do. You’re not the first person to tell me that.

  2. Haha, that was excellent! I’ve not seen this – one of my biggest blind spots. But as you say it’s readily available on the interwebs, I’ll see if I can track it down.

    1. Cheers man. It is definitely worth taking the time to check out on Youtube.

  3. Excellent!

  4. That was awesome lol. As for the film. Loved it. Along with Romero’s Dawn of the Dead my favorite zombie movie

    1. Cheers for commenting. I will definitely be tracking down some of Romero’s later efforts in the series.

      1. Dawn of the Dead was epic, Day of the Dead I disliked at first now love. Took a couple of viewings. I think I reviewed it here. Sometimes I lose track lol

        After that. Ah. Land of the Dead was ok. Diary of the Dead took me a couple of viewings. But now I think it’s alright. Survival of the Dead I hated at first now dig it.

      2. I’m the same as you. Constantly forgetting what I have reviewed. I will be prepared for some of them not to grab me immediately then.

      3. I now keep a log of my reviews. A couple of times I almost posted stuff I already did. So if unsure just look at my files. But yeah I think you’ll love Dawn right away. But may need a couple of viewings for others. Like I said Day of the Dead I was like blah. But now I love it.

  5. Actually, the story about how NOTLD wound up in the public domain comes down to it being the distributor’s fault. They changed the name at the last minute, bit didn’t put a copyright notice on the new title card, therefore, instant p.d.! In case you want more info on it, here’s a write-up I did back when i was running a purely public domain blog:

    1. Awesome, thanks for sharing. Took a look at your post about it. Very interesting stuff.

  6. Funny comments, now I need to watch the film and read your tweets along with it:)

    1. Thanks for the kind comment

  7. I’ve noticed that a lot of people do these live Tweet reviews, and they usually turn out pretty funny while also summarizing the movie well. Nice observations, my good sir.

    1. Thanks very much! Glad my stupid sense of humor works on occasions.

  8. I can’t wait for you to get to his last one, Survival of the Dead. Let’s just say it’s not as good as Night, which is awesome.

    1. Haha, cool. Looking forward to working my way through them.
