    He did this flick with RC! back in 2016. wicked funny
    “Night of the Living Dead” General Shaw and RC give their spin on a movie that’s probably been spun enough!

    The best . . . ever. When in high school and college as soon as one of us discovered the latest drive-in theater location presenting this masterpiece we burned up the phones planning our caravan. So many laughs. “Banned in 27 Countries” was all we needed to know to justify showing up.

    Anyone else ever think the bald buy whose daughter ends up munching on his arm was a dead (no pun intended) ringer for Don Rickles?

    Made the mistake 25 years later of thinking how great it would be to introduce the movie to my ten year old daughter and all of her sleep over friends one weekend. The only copy I could find was the 80’s remake. Oops, about the second f-bomb in I realized the newer version was only loosely based on the original. Sorry kids, no movie tonight.

    My mistake, Don and the General were just quiet and watching for about 20 minutes. The sound eventually resynched too.

    Halfway through the audio was way out of synch, and then the General and Don’s commentary disappeared.

    This movie is somewhat more tolerable with Gen. Shaw & Don Berman, but not much

    Phil – ‘Night of the Living Dead’ is no doubt the greatest horror movie of all time available in public domain, but you’ve DONE IT already! It was your Saturday Cinema pick two years ago this weekend. Why not pick (perhaps) the WORST public domain horror movies of all time for next weekend? That would be 1964’s ‘The Creeping Terror’. It’s notorious for being the only film directed by the mysterious Vic Savage, and – I shit you not – it was shot on location at the Spahn Movie Ranch!!!

      Phil said it was a repeat, so he knew that. It’s not technically a repeat, as the last time he did it was with different characters.

      Here’s “The Creeping Terror” (1964) – https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057970/
      A newlywed sheriff tries to stop a shambling monster that has emerged from a spaceship to eat the citizens of an American town.

      MST3k did this in Season 6 (1994). It would be interested to see their take on it.

      According to someone on archive.org, where Phil finds the vast majority of these public domain films, this movie is NOT public domain. I watched the start of the version at archive.org and it indeed has a copyright notice. Since this was copyrighted in 1964, if it was never renewed, the copyright would have expired in 1992. If the copyright was renewed prior to its expiration, the copyright remains until 2059. The poster claims there was a legit renewal, so, barring someone researching that (I don’t have time for this), I would advise Phil to stay away from it.
