Watch Stalker now, free

I’m sure some of you non-neanderthals have played S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Shadow of Chernobyl, GSC Game World‘s magnum opus. What you might not know is that the game takes much of it’s inspiration from the novel Roadside Picnic by Boris and Arkady Strugatsky.

In 1979 the book was adapted into a motion picture by Andrei Tarkovsky, who directed the original (and by far the best) version of Solaris. Shot in Estonia, the film apparently suffered a great number of setbacks and conditions during shooting have been blamed in causing the early deaths of cast and crew.

The full version of the movie is linked below. Watch and enjoy:
