Saturday Night at the Movies: "Night of the Living Dead"

Welcome to "Saturday Night at the Movies," a weekly feature in which I'll share a full-length movie, available for honest-to-God free on the Internet, that gets the ol' JB stamp of approval.

Night of the Living Dead has become such a part of film culture that it's kind of unimaginable to have not seen it, but I'll fess up: I was 30 before I finally got around to it. Romero's low-budget zombie creeper influenced so many horror pictures in the years that followed, it's silly to even try and tick them off. But it maintains its ability to creep (on a next-to-nothing budget, with industrial film know-how). It's an innovate film, and a blast to watch.
