Our trip to the Night of the Living Dead

Back in the fall of 2007, my husband and I headed to Butler County, Pennsylvania for a friend's wedding.  Hubby looking rather dashing as one of the groomsman...


We took advantage of this long weekend to indulge in one of my obsessions... ZOMBIES.

The quintessential, original zombie flick -- Night of the Living Dead -- was filmed in Butler County.  Specifically in a town called Evans City.  And the Cemetery is still there -- very much in the same condition as when the movie was filmed in 1968!

So, we drove out to Evans Cemetery, and recreated a few scenes.

Here is Barbra, clasping a tombstone in terror....

They are coming to get you, Barbra!


And hubby's portrayal...


My attempt...
