A Trip to the Night of the Living Dead Cemetery

Mike / July 12th, 2010

While attending a Monster convention in Butler, PA, Mike and I decided to stop by the famous Evans City Cemetery featured in Night of the Living Dead (1968).

The last surviving structure from the film, the chapel in the cemetery is in danger of being demolished. Click here for more info.

    Wow you actually had time to make it out there. I’m going to have to wait another half hour or so to actually watch. NRAnews is doing a special remote right now out at Camp Perry in Ohio. The National shooting Matches are going on. Looking forward to this as soon as I have the time.

      wow, so specific. why would you have to explain to everybody why you had time to post a comment about something that you wanted to see, but didnt have the time to. it would be like me posting a comment about how I couldnt view this yet becuase I have to get a root canal and I amd going to be late and I need to clean out my car first because I am going to be meeting to new girl I met for lunch afterwords……. (that is going to be a bad date, with a mouth full of novicaine)

    Another brilliant video-really love the enthusiasm you guys have for some of my favourite films. Nice work James and Mike. And a top notch Elvis t-shirt, Mike. The King would approve. I know Elvis fought a Mummy, I’m sure he could tackle a Zombie or two…

    Any chance you guys might find locations from the other classic Romero Living Dead trilogy?

    Double kill

    awsome…u guys should made a little short with a couple zombies or something XD

  • July 12, 2010 at 1:36 pm

    I love these location visits, it’s really cool to see how they look today and how some of it’s not even really changed that much.

    Great work man -_^

    I love the field trips!! I also really like your work with Mike, and it was awesome to see you at the location of one of my favorite horror-classics.

    Greetz from Holland!

  • July 12, 2010 at 1:38 pm

    This made my day, great video, I was able to only pick out a few of the things that I recognize from the movie, its pretty cool that you guys went there. Nice job!

  • July 12, 2010 at 1:42 pm

    Good stuff!

    If you pause at 4:28, you can see the last name on the gravestone to be Myers, just helpin with the search =)

    July 12, 2010 at 1:49 pm

    Is that the same graveyard as in the remake? I think it’s in Evans City (PA), right ?

    Great video, guys.

  • July 12, 2010 at 1:51 pm

    Okay, after some trying around it finally worked.

    Wow. I love these kind of movies of yours. They’re so much fun to watch ! Also Mike gives some extra humor into this video.

    :)

    It’s funny you guys post this today because I was google earthing this place yesterday lol.

  • July 12, 2010 at 2:03 pm

    I think the stick bit was a bit much but it would have been really funny if you could have found a stone that matched the one used to smash the window. I doubt any fans left any stones close to that shape there to be found though after 40 years. Great work even the technical issue with the i-pod worked well for this.

  • Butch Bitch

    July 12, 2010 at 2:04 pm

    I always love how precise you are with movie locations, James. It makes the videos even more of a treat to watch.

    Are you going to post pics (or footage) from the monster convention?

  • bick.benedict

    July 12, 2010 at 2:18 pm

    This looks so fucking tight. I can’t wait to watch it later.

  • July 12, 2010 at 2:24 pm

    sweet, I love these “on location” videos!

  • Dr.That1guy

    July 12, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    Awesome! You should do things like that more often. I wouldnt recomend going to the Amityville Horror house though. I heard they dont like the tourist coming to their small town. Anyway, it was a great video. Keep ‘em comin!

  • July 12, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    Thanks everyone, I’m still working on getting all my Monster bash footage edited. I have a few interviews.

    We also got some crude home video-ish footage of another Romero location, we could post if you’d like. Even less rehearsed and polished as the cemetery tour.

    And yep, the cemetery’s in Evans City.

    golden, very entertaining and fun to watch. thanks guys =)

    james, post that too =D
    It will be awesome =)

  • July 12, 2010 at 3:10 pm

    Wow Evans City is only about 20-30 mins away from me. I used to pass by it whenever I went to school in Butler.

  • July 12, 2010 at 3:19 pm

    4:10 to 4:20 epic face xD, great video again guys, keep up the great work.

  • barthdrum

    July 12, 2010 at 3:22 pm

    Very Fun to watch! Please keep doing this kinda videos! :D

  • July 12, 2010 at 3:27 pm

    Great work! I still wish it was a little bit longer but just as great as always :)

  • July 12, 2010 at 3:28 pm

    Very interesting!
    James, someday you have to compile all those trips videos together and to make a full-length movie, it will be very interesting! ;)
    By the way, I again have a problems with log in to the site in Opera 10.63 (script always readressing me to the “?action=register” module).

    July 12, 2010 at 3:42 pm

    very nice video, i hope you make a video visiting the dawn of the dead mall here in monroeville, if you haven’t already

  • July 12, 2010 at 3:44 pm

    I love the sneak peak into the editor’s mind!

  • that1person

  • July 12, 2010 at 4:09 pm

    That was awesome. For some reason I find it funny that Mike is a fan of Elvis Presley. Don’t ask me why, I don’t know.

    Apple junk.

    Really cool to see these places in current times. Pretty amazing how little they’ve changed. Great job James!

    Hahaha! That’s insane!! Great job James!

  • marigold23

    July 12, 2010 at 4:54 pm

    lol. you guys are so cool- and insane, but that’s not a bad thing. and, oddly enough, it never occurred to me that mike would be an elvis fan. or that, in actuality, he’s more prone to swearing than james. key character insights, there. :) but that’s cool too.

  • OrbitalVelocity

    July 12, 2010 at 5:11 pm

    Not sure if you’re aware of the problem, James, but the video won’t load in Firefox. I had to use *gack* Internet Explorer.

  • Moertel

    July 12, 2010 at 5:13 pm

    Awesome

  • July 12, 2010 at 5:21 pm

    The Willie Wonka gates were visited a long while back check the blog, James posted a photo taken at night.

    As to the video not working. I didn’t have any trouble with it in Seamonkey. Wonder what they strip out in Firefox that makes it so much less compatible so often.

  • M3n747

    July 12, 2010 at 5:21 pm

  • mister moges

    July 12, 2010 at 5:27 pm

    to everyone having problems watching the video: stop messing around with crappy internet browsers and just use Chrome, it’s the best.

    I’ve never had a problem loading any of james’ videos using Chrome. which is good because all of his videos are the shit.

  • Dnat

    July 12, 2010 at 5:30 pm

    Thanks James, this is great. Im a huge Romero fan and this has made my day, cheers.

  • Shaggy

    I so love your videos man :)
    Keep up the good work guys..

  • danny

    July 12, 2010 at 5:54 pm

    Very funny and informative, as usual. I’d love it if you and Mike were to do a commentary track for this movie, like you did with Dracula a while ago.

  • VampricYoda

    July 12, 2010 at 6:00 pm

  • tommyfan69

    July 12, 2010 at 6:09 pm

    Very nice video, James.

    If you and Mike are ever near Monroeville, you guys should do a video about the “Dawn of the Dead” locations. I know for a fact that it was in Monroeville Mall. It’s been about 10 years since I’ve been there, but I think you could get some good stuff. Both interior and exterior.

    There’s also the Harold W. Brown Memorial Airfield (Pittsburgh-Monroeville Airport) that was used for the eariler scenes.

    Anyway, Keep up the awesome work, man

  • strint519

    July 12, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    Awesome short James. This movie is an absolute classic. Love how you put the films music over your drive, and re-created some of the scenes and shots. Most excellent day trip, too bad you didn’t pass the house they bunked in.

    “They’re coming to get you Barbara!”

    Ah, I wish I knew that James was in the Burgh :( I live 40 minutes away from the cemetary. I’ve been there before and I love it! Did you stop at Monroeville Mall too? (I’m writing this comment before I’ve watched the video, so if there’s any reference to that, then oops!)

  • IDaCashman

    July 12, 2010 at 7:14 pm

    I love NOTLD, but you obviously are obsessed with it.

    And I don’t think they call them Zombies, because…well, listen to the movie. You can hear the words “disease” and “aliens” coming out of the radio. I dunno it’s been some years since I’ve seen it but that’s what I remember (and the awesome characters/zombies.)

  • staywhatur44

    July 12, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    Yeah. Western PA is a bunch of tiny, backwoods roads…I used to live in a little town about 20 miles away from Butler called Harrisville, and for the longest time, there was a rumor that a little bit of that scene took place in a cemetary in that town…unfortunately it didn’t, but my elementary school is in the movie. In the movie I think it’s called Harrisville Middle School or something like that, but that’s about as famous as that town ever got. Haha. It’s sure awesome living around where the great George Romero worked!

  • starman15317

    July 12, 2010 at 7:52 pm

    It would be cool if James came to Monroeville Mall in October for the Zombie Walk! I would love that! ;)

    really enjoyed this, one of my classic favorites. Wild how the building and such hasn’t changed too much.

  • Dan1234

    July 12, 2010 at 8:32 pm

    Great video. My grandparents lived and still live right by this place, and my grandfather once sold casket protectors, which meant he had to go into the graves, pull out the caskets, and replace the linings inside to keep bodily fluids from running out. The stench was so bad that people sometimes fainted, apparently. During the time this movie was made, for some strange reason, he ended up selling a used car to Tom Savini.

  • TIMI15

    July 12, 2010 at 8:34 pm

    I’ve tried two different browser and neither have worked. When I try to play the video it say that the page has to close.

  • Joker83

    July 12, 2010 at 9:31 pm

    love NOTLD, but isnt it weird how the first zombie is able to figure out that he could pick up a rock and use it as a tool? i dont think the modern day walking dead wouldnt be able to do that, or even any of the other romero zombies, (except bub)

  • Jigglysaint

    July 12, 2010 at 9:48 pm

    You know last week I saw a zombie Mountie. Well actually he looked more like a zombie Frankenstein’s Monster or somthing because of the face paint.

  • Jake

    July 12, 2010 at 9:55 pm

    I remember having nightmares for a month after my mom let me watch this when I was 6 years old. I would fall asleep and in my dream I was in my bed, just like I really was so it seemed realistic, and zombies would come in through the window and tear me apart. Once they got to my face I would wake up – thanks mom! But yet, I have seen it countless times since then, and it’s one of my favorites. Classic! Good job on the video fellas.

  • TehJimmy

    July 12, 2010 at 10:39 pm

  • July 12, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    I am using the latest Internet Explorer, Internet Explorer 8, and I had no problem watching the video. After the internet commercial just hit play, then pause, and after about 5 minutes the whole thing should be ready to play without any stalling.

  • July 12, 2010 at 11:05 pm

    I wanna see all the footage, James!

  • July 13, 2010 at 12:02 am

    FYI, in Night of the Living Dead they actually refer to the zombies as ghouls, which makes more sense as ghouls in other myths (particularly in Arabian myth) ghouls were creatures who consumed dead flesh. Zombies were of Haitian myth as people who were brought back from the dead to serve as slaves.

    Man for a second I thought it was going to be like Quarantine, where the reporter films a zombie outbreak, but it would be like the outbreak happens in the spot from night of the living dead to you and mike while your talking about the movie.

    Shopping mall?

    lol, so much to do in Pittsburgh, so little time.

  • July 13, 2010 at 8:43 am

    I grew up in Butler and have been to the cemetery a few times. I still live in Pittsburgh, but didn’t make it up for the convention. I was going to hit the con, but ended up being out of town that weekend. Would have been cool to run into you.

    The Crazies was also filmed in the same area. When you came down 68 from Butler and got to the beginning of Evans City proper, at the bottom of the hill, the Fire Hall that is featured in the movie is just to your right about a block.

    I am awed by the pure talent that is James Rolfe, i am a big fan but just became a member today. I really hope you take a serious leap to the big screen considering all your fans and subscribers hollywood would be stupid not to finance you. We all know you can do it we all know you want to do it so do it!
    Also keep the avgn videos coming every time there is a new one it brightens my day, your grimaces when you can’t believe how bad a game is is hilarious. Greetings from sweden!

  • Doctor Cheesius

    July 14, 2010 at 3:50 am

    Awesome! I love these trips to movie locations, it’s fantastic for those of us who are probably not going to get a chance to do it ourselves – and it saves us the hours that I’m pretty sure you spend looking for specific places to shoot (for instance, how long did it take you to find the specific headstone they were going to? Or the one where she is attacked by the zombie?). This was very entertaining.

  • Doctor Cheesius

    July 14, 2010 at 3:53 am

    I don’t know if anyone else has mentioned this, but it’s worth mentioning that Night of the Living Dead is in the public domain now, if I remember correctly, Romero forgot to file a copyright extension or something, and now it’s free. Search for it at archive.org if you have a hankering to watch this classic.

    haha. funny little story about evans city PA. my family grew up there. my great grandma has lived there for 65 years. and my grandma and grandpa grew up there. so did my parents and my aunts and uncles. they lived right down the road from the little old lady’s house that they used in the movie. they also used my mom’s old elementary school in the movie too. my whole family remembers them coming and making that movie there, it is a tiny, TINY, town so when they did the movie there people remembered. I had always known about evans city, i visit there all the time. but the first time i watched night of the living dead, i had no idea where it was shot, until the one scene where they are saying all the counties that are on lockdown or whatever. lol. i never made the connection until i asked my mom if she knew anything about it. thats when i found all that out. I love old monster movies, but this one has a special place in my heart…. sorry for taking up so much space… :D

    Wow that’s incredible. It must feel so awesome to be there, in the cemetery where they filmed Night of the Living Dead. James is one fucking lucky guy. I love how they talk about the stick that was in the movie. :)

    Again, Bravo, James! You will never cease to wow me with your imagination and insight into pop culture. Wonderful to see that place up close and personal. Thanks. You should go to the original Camp Crystal Lake next.

    @ Demasterpl – James posted a pic a while back of himself, his wife, Mike, Lloyd Kaufman, Toxie and some other people at a convention.

    I don’t think that girl in the rear view mirror is his wife.

    Now I feel awful. I live near Butler, and I had no idea James would be around. I could have gone to meet him. :(

    I was working at a wine and spirits at the time you were down here. A few people from the convention came to the store the day I worked.

    Those conventions in butler are usually lame. i went to a few of them. i wish i knew you guys were around. I had the opportunity of being in the 30th anniversay addition of NOTLD. john russo and bill hinzman shot new footage with the original camera’s and spliced it into the original film. i was a posse member shooting at zombies. keep up the good work james and mike.. if you’re ever back in the area come out to a Legendary Hucklebucks show..beers are on me!

  • July 15, 2010 at 11:10 pm

    It’s interesting how by using line of sight, the Director can keep full continuity, even if cheating.

  • July 16, 2010 at 2:16 am

    That was a fun video. I like how you were able to point out the irl continuity problems.

  • July 16, 2010 at 10:47 am

    just great, one of the most rewatchable horror movies, and cinemassacre

  • July 16, 2010 at 5:25 pm

    @ Demasterpl Dah, I didn’t even notice I was in the rearview. I’m not anyone’s wife, just a fellow filmmaky-friend.

  • July 16, 2010 at 11:07 pm

    Absolutely Awesome! Thanks for making this one, I am a huge fan of Romero and his original Zombie trilogy!

  • sethy

    You guys should totally go to the cabin where “The Evil Dead” was filmed. That would be sick. If it even exists anymore.

  • xdeathknightx

    July 17, 2010 at 6:33 am

    Man I still need a good copy of this, only copy I could find in the stores on dvd was the one where they added some pointless scene with a guy you will never see again and they changed the music. So I am hoping to find a good region 2 copy of this one, although I can still watch the movie just some music was changed and at the start a scene was added.

    BTW, there really are zombies in Evans City. Just look at the people that live there ;)

  • jlazis138

    July 17, 2010 at 6:10 pm

    Ah I live literally five minutes away from here! My friend did her senior project on the cemetary and did basically the same thing you did. It’s just so cool living right down the road from one of the most infamous scenes in horror history. Like the mall, the cemetary and the surrounding area has changed quite a bit, like the old farmhouse burned down years ago. In fact, just last year Evans City held a showing of NOTLD on a big screen and a bunch of old cast members came up to sign autographs. My friend’s grandpa even played one of the zombies and has the shirt to prove it! I so wish I could’ve seen you touring the cemetary, it’s an honor knowing James was 5 mins from my house :)

  • Sicc Nick

    July 17, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    Really loved that you took a trip to that cemetary. That’s actually one of the places that I was really hoping you’d go check out. I’m a huge Night of the Living Dead fan, so it’s a real treat to see it outside of the film, and it’s super cool to see you of all people, explore it.

    Nice job as always, ya’ fuckin’ NERD!

  • timster

    July 21, 2010 at 11:03 pm

    Damn James! You and Mike are so lucky to visit what is possibly one of the greatest landmarks in horror movie history! I enjoyed watching this vid and I can only imagine the excitement you guys both felt when you stepped into Evans City Cemetery to check out the spots where Barbara ran for her life and Johnny fell victim to the first zombie. If ever I make a trip to PA in the future, I’d like to stop by there too! It would have been awesome too if you compared footage/ scenes with Tom Savini’s NotLD remake! Still, great job man! Long live Zombie movies!

    Mike’s scream is soooo funny. Great video, always thought that head slam would have hurt. Great job.

    I loved both Mike and James’ expressions while crouching down at that tombstone towards the end.

    Thank you so much for this video. My friends and I have been big fans of the Romero movies for many years. Never thought about where it was filmed. Because of your video we made a trip to Pennsylvania from Michigan. We had a blast at the Evans City cemetery and Monroeville Mall.

    In the news report things in the movie, did you see the bridge in the background? It is a suspension bridge in a little known place called Clarksville, It is near where I live. It could take me just 5 minutes to get there.

    Lol, I had the volume on this video cranked out, and then when that fleshy skeleton popped out with the scream I fell back in my chair xD

    so then for the restof the video I was squinting and had the volume almost to muted lol.

    Hey guys this piece is really well done. At first I thought, “wow it would be nice to see some color” but then I realized for stylistic choices it was worth it.

    Anyway, speaking of stylistic choices..

    I don’t mind the layout of the front page and overall look. But, the logo looks like it was made in mspaint, and don’t get me wrong “I LOVE mspaint!” However, it could use some relooking-at.

    You should look more with the times like this guy:

    I watch his stuff and he’s pretty hilarious and nerdy.

    It’s not terrible to lose some functionality of the site for a good look and feel because eventually you’ll have one that has bothhh.
