Today's Monster Memories are of:Held Over! which features vintage newspaper movie adverts. And the magazines sometimes held articles that, as I refind them in my collection, I decide would fit better here.
November 7th, 1971 Newsweek "Night of the Living Dead" article
Such is this article from the November 7th, 1971 edition of Newsweek. The article is a look back at how NOTLD was viewed as it began to make the midnight movies circuit long after it's initial theater run, which was unusual. I had never seen the movie, and articles like this only whetted my appetite. I wouldn't get the chance to see it until 1982, when I brought it home from the local library along with their 16 mm projector, and watched it on a sheet on the wall. I was 23 at the time and it was still terrifying to me!
For weeks later, when I would take the trash out at night, I would glance around nervously in the dark. It gave me the willies that much!
