Any Night of the Living Dead fans here?
« on: September 08, 2010, 12:31:38 pm »
I'm talking about the original version.

I live fairly close to Evans City Cemetery where the opening scene was filmed, and last year my wife and I went there and took some photos.  I had some screenshots from the movie with me, and tried to match the scenes to the current view.  Here's the results:

The cemetery is still in use, and as a matter of fact, a funeral was happening on the other side, out of sight, while we were there.

    Yeah, I love all those old zombie flicks.  Night, Dawn, Day, etc., etc.  I'm a sucker for the genre, in film or in books.

    Interesting pic comparisons.  Thanks for sharing!

    Cool. I remember seeing this movie when I was home sick from school as a little kid and being scared witless. It's one of the few that have stood the test of time for me. It doesn't inspire the same crazy terror, but it still gives me chills.

    I saw it a million years ago.  That's pretty awesome that you could match up the pictures like that.  Gotta love it.

    I'm a huge dead fan. I watch every one when it comes out no matter how corny they are.  I love the social commentary on the first one, and I like how he tried to bring that back with Land of the Dead.  The last two not so much, but they were still fun to watch.

    Nice photos, btw! That would be cool to visit the locations like that.
