Adventures of a Geeky Fan Girl: George Romero Film Locations




When I was a kid, I grew up watching all of George Romero’s zombie films. I never thought that years later into my adulthood I would be visiting some of the filming location spots.

I spent Memorial Day weekend going to PA with some friends to have a fantastic, geeky experience.

And now I’m sharing that geeky experience with you! Enjoy! 

(Thanks to my friend Richard for the film screenshot) 

Monroeville Mall (Original Dawn of the Dead)










Parking by the same spot the original crew parked at 








Down there was where the original J.C. Penny’s stood. R.I.P.




The ice rink was turned into a food court.
The only store left from the original 




Air field (Dawn of the Dead) 









“Redneck House” (Dawn of the Dead) 




Night of the Living Dead original  (cemetery)

The chapel in the background 

Taking a look inside the chapel

Product placement? 
And this is how it’s all going to begin. A stupid person knocks over the barrels… 

The Crazies (Post Office)

Night of the Living Dead remake (cemetery)

I was confused and frightened by the upside down cross. Wtf? 

My attempt to recreate the scene 
Got it!

Night of the Living Dead remake (house)


Creepshow


Creepshow’s The Crate 


The House of Henry and Wilma

 Carnegie Mellon (in the movie it was called Amberson Hall) 

And to close my geeky adventure, a picture my friends and I took at the mall. 





Although I kinda felt like a creeper taking pictures of people’s houses and breaking the law in certain cases, I loved the feeling of being in places that filled my head of zombie dreams when I was a kid.
