Save the Evans City Chapel Fundraiser

The ZRC is not, as an institution, exactly a fan of ‘Night of the Living Dead’, but it’s hard to miss the film’s importance to both the Undead Rights movement and cinematic history.

So we recognize the importance of preserving both the film and the institutions and locations that enabled it to be produced (even if we hope they stop making sequels before any more Zombies get defamed).

The ZRC therefore thinks we can get behind this charitable effort:

Fix The Chapel.com is the grassroots effort of Night of the Living Dead fans to restore and preserve the chapel in Evans City Cemetery, a cinematic landmark from the George A. Romero classic horror film originally released in 1968. Fundraising activities include donations and merchandise sales through this web site and online auctions, as well as raising awareness at horror conventions and via social networks such as Facebook and YouTube. A goal of $50,000 is being sought.

So far they’re about halfway to their goal.

Hey, we like a good charitable effort here at the ZRC, and this doesn’t harm Zombies, so why not?

They’ll even be at Horrorhound in a few weeks so we’ll drop by their booth and see how we can help. You should consider doing the same.
