Public Domain Torrents has 800+ free public-domain videos from cult classics like Night of the Living Dead and Swamp Women to animated features like Gulliver’s Travels.
Not only are these movies all free, but many of them have already been encoded into iPod Video format! Don’t have an iPod? There’s also Zune and PSP video versions for many of these films. But don’t expect these movies to download as fast as content from the iTunes Store. In fact it may take several hours, or even an overnight session, to download these movies via BitTorrent.
NOTE: Popular films, like Bruce Lee the Invincible, will have more torrent seeds and download much faster.
So what can you expect to find in this treasure trove of free films? There’s a lot of silent-era stuff, but you’ll also find some classics from director Ed Wood (Plan 9 from Outer Space), George Romero (Night of the Living Dead) and a weird Russian sci-fi film called Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women.
The IMDB.com review for King of Kong Island might be a good example of what you can expect from these movies:
An Italian Spanish Co-production with America’s own Dick Randall involved in the ‘presenting’ – King of Kong Island mixes horror movie, nudie-cutie and jungle adventure with toppings of National Geographic stock footage- all set to a jungle beat of exotica. [IMDB]
You will need a BitTorrent client in order to download these films. If you are unfamiliar with BitTorrent and how to use it, please check out this MethodShop.com BitTorrent tutorial.
