Free Digital Downloads: Night of the Living Dead (1968) and Dracula (1897)

Starting Monday September 30, 2013 (10:30 – 12:30) and periodically throughout the semester, we’re going to focus on digital downloads. We’ll be in the library lounge (located in the L building) to help you specifically download our feature items of the week. (It’s like soup for your soul. Wait, is that copyrighted?) We will feature one book and one film that are out of copyright, and thus, free for you to download unto your device. Next Monday (September 30) we will feature Night of the Living Dead (1968) and Bram Stoker’s Dracula,  but who knows what it could be next time! One thing is for sure, it will be free! So stop by!

Do you have more questions about public domain and copyright? Stop by! We’ll explain it to you! Or maybe you need technical help getting items downloaded onto your device? We can help!

If you’d like a little background information on Night of the Living Dead, please click here to take a look at a previous Film Blog post. Looking for more information on zombies? Who isn’t these days? Take a look at Generation Zombie : Essays on the Living Dead in Modern Culture (2011). I’ve embedded the film below, but if you have any questions about how to embed a video or how to download books legally onto your device, please stop by! Look for the big blue sign.

Evil Dead…the Musical? Yes, it is true. The Moraine Valley Academic Theater will be performing Evil Dead: The Musical during the post-Halloween/pre-Thanksgivisng limbo in November.

Here is the blurb about the musical from the MVCC theater site:

  • Evil Dead: The Musical, Nov. 5-7 at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 8 at 3 p.m.Dorothy Menker Theater, Directed by Tommy HenselBook & Lyrics By George Reinblatt, Music By Frank Cipolla/Christopher Bond/Melissa Morris/George Reinblatt: Based on Sam Raimi’s 1980s cult classic films, Evil Dead tells the tale of five college kids who travel to a cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash an evil force. And although it may sound like a horror, it’s not! The songs are hilariously campy, and the show is bursting with more farce than a Monty Python skit. As musical mayhem descends upon this sleepover in the woods, “camp” takes on a whole new meaning with uproarious numbers like All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons, Look Who’s Evil Now and Do the Necronomicon.
