Wicked Zombies


The chapel featured in the opening sequence of the 1968 George Romero classic, Night of the Living Dead, needs your help. It's in bad shape and the Evans City Cemetery Board has plans to demolish it.

As soon as he heard of the Cemetery Boards plans, Gary Streiner, sound engineer for the film, decided to do something about it. He convinced the Board to give him a year to raise the estimated $50,000 needed for the restoration and he set about organizing a grass roots effort consisting of cast, crew, and fans to "Fix The Chapel".

Coming up on three months old at the time of this writing, the movement has raised over 11,000 dollars, but the goal is still far off.

With talented artists, writers, musicians, animators, and a myriad of others coming together to offer their talents to help raise the money to prevent the loss of this bit of zombie history, one thing is still missing. You.

See the latest Corpse 'O Clock News episode full of the latest news on the effort:

Come join the effort at savethechapel

With events happening all over the country, art auctions on ebay, visits from cast and crew, and lots more, there isn't a better way to become part of zombie history as we all pull together to Save the chapel!

That is the number the Cemetery Board arrived at after having contractors look at the building....we are actually talking with a different person (who is also a fan) and that price may come down a bit..

i got an idea. what about them meeting you half way. like for instance. above you said that $50,000 was needed to restore the chapel. if you could get say like $25,000 could they not see you half way by chipping in the other $25,000? that way its not all on them and all not on you. it would be a joint venture that restore a piece of cinematic history.

Evans City is a TINY town, and the cemetery isn't in a position to offer that kind of financial support...wish it was possible though...

I posted this link to our facebook page! Thanks for the info! 

kick ass, Thanks!

How is the Evan's City Cemetary Chapel doing in 2020?
