Image via WikipediaOne of my favorite fun facts about living in Pittsburgh is that homewood cemetery is the location that Night of the Living Dead was filled. Well, after learning about this event – I realized that I have been misinformed. Regardless, Pittsburgh is still the birth place of this horror film and it is something to be celebrated, even if the scenes were filmed in Evans City. So head on up to Evans City to celebrate the 40th Anniversary Celebration of the film Night of the Living Dead with some of the original cast members too.
