Wow! This had it all! In 1968! Slow zombies (or „ghouls“), and lot‘s of them that then do indeed get dangerous, TV and radio broadcasts about the outbreaks, flesh- and gut-eating, a child zombie slaughtering and feasting on its parents, conflicts between the living, boarded doors and windows, zombie hands reaching in, stuffed animal heads, power outage, eerie lighting, an escape mission gone wrong, and a mean end etc etc. Sure, it also has some shortcomings, but overall I was left super-impressed with this one. Was way ahead of its time!

Saw the restored 4k version at the Metropol. It looked fantastic!
