    Night of the Living Dead


    The 4K restoration of NOTLD is nuts, perhaps too nice even as some of the grain and imperfections that added to the nightmarish quality are missing.

    2 clowns fight for the affection of a curvy trapeze artist (Spain), one is heavy handed and drunk (the Nationalist) while the other is sweet timid (the republic).

    I really also commend the ending for telling it like it is, nobody gets the girl(Spain) but the church.
