But that was the second part of the day. First, we traveled to a deceptively quiet street and a distinctively decorated store front to meet with Kevin Kriess of the Living Dead Museum, a veritable treasure trove of information, artifacts, and memorabilia related to NIGHT, DAWN OF THE DEAD, DAY OF THE DEAD, and many other aspects of zombie genre history dating both before and after Romero’s immortal trilogy.
Formerly based in the Monroeville Mall, site of DAWN, the museum is now just minutes away from the aforementioned Evans City Cemetery. We’ll cover the museum visit in two installments, because it’s just too big an event to encompass in a single post. In this gallery, we arrive at the museum, and encounter some amazing and authentic artifacts from Romero’s original cinematic cycle!
There’s so much more to explore, but that will have to wait until the final post covering the second half of our visit to the Living Dead Museum in Evans City! “We got this, man!”
Arnold and Scott are back, sharing e-mails and news and then turning to one of the macabre milestones of horror film, an essential stepping stone in the shambling journey of the flesh-eating pop culture zombie from US notoriety to Italian fame! Zombie Vs. Shark! Eye-Gouging Scene! Ol’ Worm-Eye! What else could this be but the Lucio Fulci cult classic, ZOMBIE from 1979/1980 (or ZOMBI 2 or ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS or…)! In this special tribute episode, the guys talk all about those iconic moments and why Fulci’s film is a must-see for any zombie fan. It’s time to head to Matool, so grab your luggage, because “the boat can leave now. Tell the crew!”
By popular demand! At long last (and just in time for their 78th episode), Arnold and Scott turn their attention to one of the unforgettable landmarks of horror cinema, the second installment in the immortal George Romero trilogy, DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978)! In this special tribute episode, the guys chat about favorite moments from such an oft-viewed classic, themes that resonate as powerfully in 2016 as they did in 1978, and some of the reasons why the zombies of DAWN are different from the creatures people may remember. Shop for your favorite survival gear (and keep your eyes peeled for zombie kids), tell your friend that “we got this by the ASS,” and get ready for the dawn!
