LIVING DEAD WEEKEND PART 4:
EVANS CITY CEMETERY from the Original NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD - 1968
So this morning after breakfast, Dawson and I decided to head over to the Evan's City Cemetery from the Opening of NOTLD '68.
Upon arriving, it honestly felt like I was in a time capsule, as the area looks essentially the same as it did in the film (minus the fall weather). It was a pretty nostalgic feeling to say the least.
I took a plethora of pics (probably too many, but what the hell). We met a Great couple, ironically also from Onrario Canada, Chad and Jennifer. We were the only 4 people there at the time. Of course, Chad and I went off on our Romero films, and talked about how old we were when we saw 'Night', 'Dawn', 'Creepshow', etc. He actually pointed out to us where the main grave markers from the beginning were. We took a bunch of pics. Chad had his wife do the 'Barbara' bit, where she's kneeling at their Fathers grave, while he stood off to the side as 'Johnny', looking impatient; "Hey Barb, Church was this morning, huh?" When I finished taking the pics for him, he said "Do you wanna do the same for your pics?" Of course I said yes. His wife Jennifer was a great sport, yet at the same time I'm sure thinking that we needed psychiatric help, lol. I know Dawson probably felt that way.😁 Looking at my pics with 'Barb', I think I look more like a zombie ready to attack. I was trying to look 'irked'. Chad did it better.😉
That's the thing that I Love about these kinds of shows. You meet people for the first time, and within minutes, you're talking to each other like you've known one another for years. It's Fantastic man. I Love Every Minute of it.
