You may or may not have already seen the 1968 George Romero masterpiece, Night of the Living Dead, but even if you haven’t, you can’t deny the importance and long-lasting effects it has had on the cinematic, and Zombie-loving communities worldwide.
At the start of the film you are introduced to Barbara and her brother Johnny as they drive to visit their Father’s grave. Shortly after arriving at the graveyard, and exiting the car a chapel comes into view in the background; this is the Evans City Cemetery Chapel.
As I write this the Evans City Chapel sits in disrepair and is danger of becoming demolished. Gary R. Streiner, a key member of the production staff on the original Night of the Living Dead, has created “Fix the Chapel.com” to raise funds to save this historic piece of cinematic and Zombie history, but that isn’t even the best part…
Not only can you simply donate toward the cause, you can even purchase an actual piece of the chapel to keep with your collection at home. For just $10.00, less than the cost of most Zombie movies, you can be the lucky owner of an actual chapel artifact.
Check out: www.fixthechapel.com to learn more, donate, or even purchase a piece of history like we did.
You can do whatever you like with your piece of history, but we added ours to the Official Zombease Library.
